Hello, I have recently finished double strengh amoxicillin for my chest as I have bronchiectasis. I also have RA, lupus and scleroderma. I have have had a sore tongue since the antibiotics it s down one side and catches my teeth. I feel so run down and poorly. Last night I had an awful sinus type migrane headache. I m also in a flare- up. Can you please help? Rosemary
First of all, migraine does not cause a sore tongue. But the medications for your conditions can cause this problem. You should assess the auto-antibodies in your blood to adjust the dose of the drugs you take. Moreover, the prolonged use of antibiotic kills the normal flora in your mouth, resulting in the rapid growth of harmful bacteria. These bacteria can cause a sore tongue.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
