Hi jean,
a big welcome to you, i think lots of ladies suffer from oral sores and i'm sure someone will be along with a lot more knowledge than me. As for swollen tongue, don't know?
I am just diagnosed with mixed connective tissue disease which has symptoms of lupus and i do get sores in my mouth and nose.

Take Care

Hello Jean and welcome!

I haven't had that problem with the swollen tongue in particular but wanted to say hello :)

I know that mouth ulcers and sores are pretty common in lupus. I used to get lots that recurred over and over but I haven't had any since starting on plaquenil.

bye for now,
Katharine

Welcome Jean
I hope you find this group as lovely and as helpful as I do.
I get mouth ulcers especially when my lupus is flaring, and I get a lot of mouth infections and tooth problems. I once had a very sore spot on my tongue which was a small gland that had swollen.
But I have never had the swollen tongue you describe. Is this a recent symptom? Perhaps you could ask your GP is there is anyone else that you can be referred to. My last two dentists did not know what Sjogrens was, so the rheumy referred me to a Sjogrens specialist at the dental hospital when the mouth problems started.

Jean,
Hey. I have lupus and possible fibro also. I just wanted to say hello. I haven't had the same symptoms but i do hope that you find some relief for it.

Maybe someone else here can help you more because there are some wonderful, knowledgeable people here.

Hello Jean,
I used to get very bad mouth ulcers too and I actually found that a good chinese herbalist can sort this out. The herbs are boiled up and do not taste very well. However, it took only a couple of days for me to get rid of the ulcers.
Good Luck.

I have already found this site to be so helpful! It is great to talk to others that really understand how tough this disease can be. We look ok so others don't think we should have a problem and also we put on a good front,right? F Jean
