    Someone tell me why.

    Basically, I'm scraping loose, seemingly dead tissue from the underside of my tongue on nearly a daily basis.

    This has been going on for as long as I can remember, so we are talking 20+ years.

    My doctor cannot seem to provide a good explanation, but doesn't appear concerned. As he put it, "If it was anything serious, you'd be dead by now." My dentist was also stumped.

    The only thing that I notice tends to affect is somewhat is that it is more pronounced after a night of drinking....

    Anyone have any idea what this is about?

    This is interesting.

    I've googled for this a million times with no results, but today I found something.

    I believe I have an inherited genetic condition called White Sponge Nevus. Apparently it's very rare, usually starts in early childhood and is totally benign.

    Just as I've always suspected...I'm a freakin mutant. [​IMG]

    Maybe you're a zombie, looking for flesh to replenish your cells.

    My hair isn't green in the photo. It's bleached. It might look a little green due to the lighting in the bar....

    Why I'm bothering to explain this, I dont actually know.

    I knew I should have been a doctor, hell I could say that to people all day long...

    "What's that Mr. Johnson? A rash on your scrotum you say? Well, if it were anything serious, you'd be dead now. NEXT!"

    I KNEW that whole 'years of medical school' thing was just a big smokescreen!
