Customer Question

Hello so ive asked a couple of questions already but I have another. I’ve been suffering with severe anxiety and I’ve been getting symptoms from it but now I’ve noticed I have some spots at the back of my tongue, now I have health anxiety aswell so it’s not a good situation for me again. I’m on anxiety pills today but can anxiety and mental health cause spots at the back of tongue and also I had a tooth removed so could it be bacteria from that?

I can’t really get a good picture but they appear to be skin colour spots but thank you for the response. I looked it up and they do appear to be papillae spots. Do they go away on their own?
Expert:  Dr.Sumanth replied 15 days ago.

They need not go away and they are normal.
