So ever since my stomach symptoms began, I have had a burning in my throat, and white globs in my tonsils. The doctors never see the white globs when I show them..and they said the burning was heartburn. I’m starting to wonder if the white is candida related? My tongue is a little yellow/white and slimy but not extreme. I do get white in the cracks of my mouth and a bad taste in my mouth. The only time I notice the burning throat is when I have this white gunk. I also have a lot of bumps on the back of my tongue and several really red dots in my throat. Not sure if this is really heartburn or just thrush! Help 🙂

Not sure about the white globs, but the tongue looks just like mine in the back. My tongue did not start looking like that until I started having gastro issues at the beginning of July and decided to start probiotics. I had an O&P (ova and parasites) stool sample that found “moderate yeast” (and nothing else) which is why I joined this forum.
By the way, my first doctor immediately ordered an HIV test as a result of this, which was negative. I don’t think doctors get that this is pretty normal for people with a gut imbalance issue. It is not a sign of a immune system disease in nearly all cases. From what I can tell, even cancer wouldn’t cause this–it is only cancer treatment (like chemo or radiation) that causes thrush by destroying good bacteria.August 12, 2013 at 2:16 pm #108988

If you have oral thrush it isn’t very bad…I wouldn’t worry about this. I would worry about the sore throat which could be strept or something else.
