Hi I am 10 days post ovulation and have a really sore tongue! It feels like I have swollen taste buds dotted all over my tongue and I have burnt it! Have any of you experienced this before?

I’ve never heard of that before. Plus it is far too early for pregnancy symptoms, you wouldn’t get symptoms due to being pregnant until around 4-5 weeks into a pregnancy. Maybe you’ve eaten something, bitten it without realising...? I once burnt my tongue and didn’t realise until the next day when it started hurting lol

I've never heard of that symptom before.

Good luck though!

It's a symptom of vitamin/mineral deficiency and could be a sign you are unable to absorb B12. Get blood tests for B12, folate, ferritin, FBC and full thyroid panel.

I hope not because I've got a sore end-of-tongue now and I'm 52 and post-menopausal!

Pregnancy does a lot of weird things, but I've never heard of a sore tongue being one of them. Probably you either burnt it or have a deficiency of some sort.

Any chance you’ve been exposed to HFMD?

I had a sore swollen tongue in the later stages of my last two pregnancies. My baby is now nearly 7 weeks and my tongue hasn't been sore since I gave birth. Maybe it's a hormonal/ sensitivity thing?
