My daughter Sarah noticed a sore on her tongue. Thought it was from biting it. she went to a doctor. He diagnosed her with thrush, gave her meds and sent her on her way. Meds did nothing.. she went back to the same doctor for a 2nd and 3rd time. He told her there was nothing more he could do for her and to stop wasting both his and her time. My daughter lived with this sore on her tongue for over a year.She woke up one morning in horrible pain and her tongue was black.
