Here's my question, can your mouth become smaller inside, less roomy as it were, without having microstomia? My lips and mouth opening aren't smaller, well I don't think so anyway and certainly not like microstomia pictures, nevertheless I'm sure the inside is smaller.
I have started waking up because I am biting my tongue, the edge of it, whilst sleeping. The roof of my mouth seems lower and my tongue seems to take up the whole middle of it, When I'm asleep I can't control where my tongue is at and it slips between my upper and lower teeth at the side of my mouth, especially the left side. I wake up with an OUCH! Can scleroderma be causing this without causing the traditional microstomia?
I'll be interested to see what everyone has to say about this because I know that oral/dental involvement is quite common in scleroderma.
