Please help - black tongue !!!

Hi There

I am on the Go Lower diet but I thought I would post on here because more people look at it - a bit worried as I have been in ketosis for 4 days ... and I have just been to have my usual evening tooth brush and have noticed my tongue is BLACK ... I havent had anything to eat that is coloured ... and ooooo I am just a bit on the worried side ... and I know a lot of you ladies and gents are in ketosis too .. is this a side effect ?

I have never heard of this ~ I wouldn't know about it at all.
The only thing I would say is that when your tongue goes blue or black, you may need medical advice.

I hope it's nothing to worry about, and maybe someone else knows something i don't, but I would maybe call the NHS helpline for advice?
Thank you :) Just read a website that said it can be a sign of 'starvation ketosis' ... just not feeling like im being starved though ! Going to ring NHS direct in the morning if it's still there. Going to drink plenty of water x
Hope you are ok. And good luck with your diet. xx :)
