Endoscopy yesterday (have had one b4). EXTREME jaw pain to the touch today - cant eat/open mouth wide. Also red blotchy rash under jawline. Normal?

TMJ problems?: Was there any difficulty with the biteblock, or did you gag/retch a lot? And rash - possibility of allergy to the strap? I'd definitely let your endoscopist know. Might want them to use a pediatric biteblock should you ever need it again. You're already taking Advil (ibuprofen) so that should help.

Unfortunately it: Will be impossible to diagnose you over the internet since we cannot see your rash or your oral lesion. These findings could easily be related to an autoimmune process or your medications. You need to make an appointment with your health care provider to discuss these new findings. Don't delay.

What cause the redness under your tongue and black veins, also the fatness on the side of your tongue?

What cause the redness under your tongue and black veins, also the fatness on the side of your tongue?

Veins: Red vessels are arteries full of oxygen. Darker vessels are usually blue/purple veins. They are a different color due to their lack of oxygen. You can see them under your tongue because the mucosa layer covering them is very thin there. The tongue is a muscle, so pretty much anything regarding its natural size and shape is muscular in nature.
