help with geographic tongue
I have read the other posting about geographic tongue, but I have some specific questions that I am hoping people with this problem can answer.
I know medical literature states that it is a condition that causes few if any side effects. However, I also read where some people have some discomfort with it. My infant daughter seems to have this condition, and since she can't talk to me I need others to tell me their experience.
1) Do you loose any feeling, or have unusual feeling in the tongue?
2) Does it hurt only with certain foods or texture, all the time, only when it is broken out?
3) Does it affect the taste?
My daughter nurses great, but is not wanting to eat anything else except some occassional fruit. I need to know if she is being picky, or is it her tongue bothering her. Also, she is constantly twisting, biting, and sucking on it. She doesn't cry if I touch it, but she doesn't want me to touch her tongue at all. All of this has shown up in the last two months (about the time we noticed the funny marks on her tongue.)
Thanks for any input you can give me.
