Hi,,,,I Have Very Swollen Taste Buds, At The Back Of My Tongue And Occasionally My Throat Feels Quite Restricted. Should I Get It Checked Out At The Doctors? Cheers Linda.

Our tongue has some lumps on the back. These are called circumvallate papillae and are taste buds which sense bitter and sour. These are normal lumps. Some time they swell due to eating sour food, smoking and no brush conditions. I advise you to have a brush before going to bed and reduce or quit smoking if you smoke. For your satisfaction, visit the doctor.
