Is that possible? I noticed a giant dent in the very back right side of my tongue. I also see a couple of small dentsin front of that one. Everything i see about teeth marks is always on the front of the tongue, but mine are in the back???

You have teeth in the back of your mouth too.

None of those people have ALS.

However, not surprisingly, teeth marks on the tongue is associated with over-thinking, anxiety, stress, and poor nutrition: http://www.drmarkwiley.com/wp-content/u ... Chart1.jpg

Note that ALS isn't mentioned anywhere.

Well what i mean is that the biggest dent seems to be further back han my last molar. I hope this isn't atrophy and are just teeth marks, but i don't see how?

Edit: Try to stop looking at your tongue. I think we are our own worst enemies to our health. I think if ALS is on the way, you aren't going to need to look at the back of your tongue for evidence. You'll know it.
