    I have really been having problems with being sick recently, I can't keep anything down at the moment. I eat about once a day so it means I'm sick at least once a day because I normal throw fluids up aswell.

    I feel as though this is really affecting my tongue now though. It looks almost like the sides are eroding away and I have big white raised spots all over my tongue. Its extremely painful.

    Has anyone else had a similar experience to this? Did it get better?

    Any advice would be most appreciated :)

    Sounds like ulcers, probably caused by the acidity of the stomach acid you'll be throwing up. If you can't keep any food down I'd recommend you go to the doctors hun. In the meantime try to keep yourself hydrated as best you can.

    Thanks, I'll try those suggestions.

    I don't really want to see my doctor at the moment-i'm trying to avoid being weighed!

    thanks again :)

    It is very uncomfortable im sorry you have the pain too. I dont think there is anything my doctor can do about it though that I can't get from the pharmacist.

    Let me know if your doctor does prescribe something though x

    He gave me Paracetamol (2 to be taken four times a day) and advised me to gargle with salt water 3 times daily.

    Yeah I don't think I'll bother mine for that!!I don't think mine would advise anything more.
    How come your doctor prescribes you paracetamol?can you not just buy that from a shop?

    I got some sort of white hairy tongue symptoms, and white ridges around the edges of my tongue -- probably caused by burning vodka and/or cigarettes.
    From my minimal research, I don't think it's too serious yet, but maybe it's pre-cancerous?
    For me it seems self-caused, so I'm an idiot.
