Hi everyone, I have searched here and on the internet generally but can't seem to find an answer to my issue : My dad (aged 76) has had Parkinsons diagnosis for 7 years. Lately he complains of pains in small areas of his tongue. We have been to the dentist several times but she cant see anything, and our Parkinsons nurse hasn't heard of it before.
It happened yesterday when I was with him and I couldnt see any marks on the tongue either. He used to say it felt like parts of his tongue were being caught on his teeth, yesterday he said it felt more like cramp. I wonder if it could be a drug side-effect as it is a new problem? Does anyone else have experience of this? His mouth/jaw are fine.
Looking forward to hearing from you
