Swollen tongue

Impossible to say without an examination. A swollen tongue can occur due to injury, different diseases, or tumors. See your dentist, an oral surgeon, or an ENT doctor.

I have a high Ige reading up to 2000. What could be the causes of this. Also get swollen tongue quite often, with ridges on side from teeth.

Allergic bruxism?

Allergies
The scalloped ridges on the side of your tongue likely are from nighttime clenching or tooth grinding. In 1980 Marks published an article in the AJO about the link between bruxism and allergies in children. It is available on PubMed. See your allergist and dentist for treatment.

Did you stab it? If you did that can cause swelling for sure.

I have a dry mouth no matter how much I drink and swollen tongue with indents along the side.

The tongue indents

Stringio
are not uncommon and are usually caused by your tongue constantly lying alongside or rubbing on the inside of your lower teeth. The dry mouth can be caused by a host of medical issues, medications, etc. See your physician for an evaluation for the dry mouth and a dentist for a dental evaluation. Also ask both your dentist and physician about using Biotene which is a saliva replacement therapy.

Birth control pills and swollen tongue. Is it the birth control even though i have taken only one so far, or an allergic reaction?

Maybe

Allergic_reaction
A swollen tongue usually is indicative of some type of allergic reaction. If you experienced the swelling just after taking the pill you may be allergic to an ingredient in the pill. Or you may have been exposed to some other allergen in something you ate. Either way an allergic reaction that causes your tongue to swell can be dangerous and you should see your doctor for diagnosis and treatment.

Dr. Sandra Eleczko answered:

I have a sore throat since yesterday and this morning I also have a swollen tongue with indents along the side. It's color is also pasty white.

Call doctor

Pharynx
I can't tell you exactly what is going on but you have symptoms of an infection, either viral or possible strep. An exam is important so you can treat this if it is strep.

What are the more common causes of a swollen tongue?

Swollen tongue

Thyroid
By far the most common cause is an acute allergic reaction (called "angioedema"). This is usually painless but may interfere with breathing. Other causes include infection (glossitis), benign tumors (neurofibromas), vitamin deficiency, underactive thyroid, infiltrative diseases (eg. amyloidosis), and certain very rare congenital causes (Beckwith-Weideman syndrome).
