"Dont know what it is. it's been like that for as long as I can remember but my parents disagree and are sure it wasn't when I was younger. it doesn't hurt, just that the sides are extra sensitive and is like an injury. like when you bite your tongue hard. should I be worried?"

    If i get you right you mean your parents have been disagreeing for a long while? If that's the case start by not feeling guilty about the situation, you can help by finding ways of showing them love, let them know in little ways that you love them both& concerned about their happiness. I'm sure with time they will understand what you are trying to do and reduce if not stop the disagreement. You could also find family activities that will involve you all so it builds and improves the family cohesion. Wish you the best.

    I still don't understand what you mean by warped, But all you have said is good for oral hygiene. We will get across to you and evaluate the picture you sent.

    I have sent the picture to the official website like they asked me to. saying they will forward it to you. please let me know when you receive it

    Good morning, yes I have seen the picture and we sincerely apologise for the little inconvenience. Do you get tired easily, is your skin dry and flaky, any complaints of abdominal bloating? My research shows your complaint looks like an uncommon presentation of hypothyroidism due to deposition of some sugars in the tongue and joints. Although common in women this disease might not even show any symptoms. Please see your physician who can request for a thyroid function test to look at your TSH and thyroxine and he will be able to manage as required. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    is there anything I need to abstain from. or cultivate as a habit? and can I know your hospital office. if you're a professional doctor. would like to know if it's around my residence

    You need to cultivate the habit of taking a lot of water and you can get multivitamin tablets especially that rich in vitamin B12& Folic acid. Good oral hygiene. But please known that the scalloped tongue is not a disease but an indication of underlying condition and the soonest that is treated your tongue will get back to normal.. Unfortunately we cannot disclose our address but if you need a competent dr around you send your details to findadoctor@kangpe.com we will gladly refer you to one.
