I was wondering if any of you have ever hard englarged "circumvallate papillae" or know why they are enlarged. They are the bumps on the back of your tongue in the back of throat. When I looked it up online it says it doesn't mean anything I just think its odd that they were not that way and all of a sudden are now. In the last 3 months I have been having some health concerns (joint pain, tiredness, tingling in hands and feet, etc) and when the doctor ran lots of tests the only thing that came back abnormal was that I have a very high ANA level. He said I may be developing an auto-immune disease but he does not know b/c all my other tests were completely normal. this is also when I noticed this bumps on the back of my tongue and I just thought it was too odd to be a coincidence. I know a lot of you have done much reading and research and wanted to know if you have ever heard of this being an indication of anything else going on? I also had swollen lymph glands in my neck and since starting to treat candida and takign supplements they have gone down but these bumps on my tongue have not.
thanks so much!
