How Long Does It Take Your Tongue To Heal. (Or At Least Feel Better)

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Haven't really been able to eat since Thursday.
Had a seizure and bit my tongue. It looks like it has scalloped edges. Anyway it really hurts and I was wondering if anyone had any info on how long it takes to feel better.

Ouchie - yogurt, applesauce (Demon food), and really blended pot noodles are the best thigs to eat. Nothing you have to chew. And all the ice cream you can hold.

It takes me 2 -3mo. To recover from my seizures,I have been in the stroke unit 16 times,and come home to. Heal it takes me awhile to come back

I’ve bitten my tongue 👅 during some seizures (sometimes even my right cheek), and for the tongue 😛 it’ll normally get better in 2-3 weeks

Mine takes about 1.5 weeks. Once it was about 3 weeks but I could put my teeth into the holes in my tongue. I am so sorry. I have always swished some salt water in my mouth.

It’s usually tender for the first 7-10 days but an antiseptic mouthwash really helped me. Unfortunately it’s happened so many times the area itself is permanently a wee tender. Just be sure to take care of yourself and stay on top of meds. I had a Temporal Lobectomy April 21st of this year and am currently over a 90% reduction in seizures but, this is what the side of my tongue looks like now. Sorry for the gross tongue picture.
