Cyclic Geographic Tongue

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

New here! 
It’s been 16 months of severe geographic tongue. 
Birth control sets off the tongue and then it takes forever for it to go away. 
I finally got diagnosed with celiac. Was convinced that wasn’t my issue bc I don’t have any digestive issues. 
The main reason I ignored the celiac theory for so long was bc every time I’d go ‘gluten free’ my tongue seemed to get worse. 
Finally a food intolerance test came back with a severe reaction to corn and amaranth... you mean the ingredients in everything that’s gluten free!!!! 😂

So I cut out corn and cut out gluten free packaged foods. I’ll admit I felt much better, but my tongue persists. It’s driving me crazy. 

my big question to all the fellow geo tongue peeps on here... how long were you strictly gluten free before it went away?! 

In between bouts of geo tongue I’ve had... 

infertility, miscarriage, lots of ivf, two babies born early and tiny thanks to preeclampsia. But they turned out freaking adorable 😂 despite the bumpy road to get here. 

Hit me with the truth!!! Would love to hear that my tongue will be back to normal by 2021 if I continue this diet!

    Ah, thanks for the clarification.   I also have Hashimoto’s.  Be on the lookout for Chronic Autoimmune Gastritis which I developed after my celiac disease diagnosis.  A repeat endoscopy revealed a healed small intestine, but gastritis.  CA...
    Thanks for your reply - it is very helpful. I have Hashimoto's, and a strong family history of autoimmune disease, so it will come as no surprise to me if I end up developing another autoimmune condition. In fact, the past year I have been...
    Hi!   An elevated (usually very) can be attributed to autoimmune or types of cancers like multiple myeloma.  I do not know your lab range, but your IgA result does not seem very elevated based on national lab ranges.  So, no worries.  ...
