Why does my tongue bleed every morning and very dry I did not bite my tongue and I have no sores in my mouth or my tongue?

Why does my tongue bleed every morning and very dry I did not bite my tongue and I have no sores in my mouth or my tongue?

Mouth breathing: If you have a tendency to breathe through your mouth more than your nose, the oral tissue will be dry when you awaken. This could lead to dry, cracked mucous membrane which could bleed easily, as you described. You should have a humidifier in your bedroom and make sure you drink plenty of fluids. Additionally, I would advise seeing your doctor to evaluate your oral cavity to look for problems. ...Read more

Acidic foods: Pineapple is a very acidic and rough food to eat. It is very common for this to bother your tongue after eating it. It happens to me. I doubt your response is an allergy. Lay off citrus for a few days and things should improve. Also avoid extremely hot, spicy or acidic foods while this is healing. ...Read more

Yes, rest easy!: The HIV tests are among the most accurate diagnostic tests ever developed, for any medical condition, and results always overrule exposure and symptoms. No matter how high your risk of HIV might have been at the time, and no matter how typical the symptoms, these results prove you don't have it. And mouth sores would never be the only symptom of HIV.
