Tenting cheek with tongue and questions regarding this
« on: August 18, 2014, 08:19:38 PM »
So, I'm trying to embrace my logic here, but I need help with some things that bugs me. Please respond, so I can put this behind me and try to move on.

- When tenting cheek with tongue, and then pressing it (testing strength), how much pressure from the fingers should the tongue be able to resist? I can resist quite a substantial pressure, but my tongue giveaway eventually.

- Is it normal for the tongue to be a little "off" when it comes to its position in the mouth? My tongue seem to be more positioned to the left in mouth, I.e not totally centered. I have a far easier time reaching the back teeth on my left side, is this normal.

- My tongue is alot meatier on my left side, but from what I've heard this is a rather normal thing?

My soft palate is severely deformed; on one side it has almost fallen down and on the other side it's normal (where my tonsils should have been (went through a tonsillectomy 14 years ago). Is it true that this only is a sign of weakness if the uvula deviates when saying "ahhhh"? Could the deformity be due the previous tonsillectomy?

I need some hard facts here guys, it would really help me moving forward. Please help me with this

I think you're completely OK.
My tongue personally can't last too much..maybe two fingers.
My tongue feels a little off too now that you say it. It tends to go more to the right than left.
The meatier thing is normal too :) and soft palates are never in perfect condition.
These tests aren't helpful for you honestly (anxiety wise) but I'm sure you're physically 100% okay :)
