    I'm still doing induction.. week 2 now.. but my tongue started tingling a few days ago.. as though I've eaten too much salt..or burnt it with a hot drink.... very odd.

    Anyone else have this? I'm eating my greens and drinking enough.. so I'm not dehydrated and should be getting the right vitamins..

    it's not very comfortable!

    Could this be a diet related symptom?

    Are you taking any new medication or could you be allergic to some sort of food?

    My mum had a tingling Tongue as a side effect of new medication and I got it when I found out I was mildly allergic to italian soft blue cheese :(

    Google is a dangerous thing when it comes to symptoms..if you are worried, I'd advise you to pop down to the doctors :)

    have you been eating nettles?

    it's most likely something you have eaten, and it doesn't like you and vice versa.

    lol! U google like I do Jim.

    Some of my nails break kinda half way up the nail and I googled to see if there were any kind of vitamins, or strengthening nail varnish I could use. Google told me I could have a thyroid problem or Raynaud's disease!

    I got checked for my thyrioid because I talked myself into having the rest of the symptoms - turns out I dont have it (checked 3 times! lol!)

    Now I think about it, I never got checked for Raynaud's diesase....and a nail broke yesterday....:cry:

    thanks guys.. glad to know it's not Atkins related.. I just wanted to check if anyone else had this symptom when on Atkins.

    Really unsure what's going on. I"ll pop to my dentist when I get back to Miami maybe he'll know.
    I have very good dental/oral hygiene..so it's not that and see a doctor if it continues.

    Not sure I want to look at that site Jim! LOL.. but always worth a check up for those things! thank you for taking the time to google it!

    I thought maybe it was a vitamin deficiency...

    I was taking diclofenac for my bad knees but stopped a week ago..

    Thanks for the care and advice guys. I'll let you know what I find out!

    I take diclofenac regularly and don't have mouth issues. I think it's easy to wonder if everything weird that we feel is diet related - I know I do, but in my own experience it's rarely the case.

    Nope.. nothing like that at all.. My tongue is a little pale.. but not coated.. or sore..just tingling, slightly swollen with that 'burnt tongue' sensation.
    It's really very strange.

    Have you tried taking antihistamine? That's what my tongue was like when I was allergic.
