I woke up this morning and my tongue was black!?

so you know how if you suck on a blue sucker your tongue turns blue,,,
well this morning mine was black. i didnt notice it until i saw it so its not like i had a bad taste in my mouth or anything.
i brushed my tongue really well and it came off.
the only things i can tie it to is drinking dr pepper last night OR i chewed a pepto tablet yesterday evening idk if that could have anything to do with it.

what the world guys.

  • Pepto did it.

    It says so right on the label.

  • HAhaha! I just watched the show Psych last night and there was a dead guy on the show with a black tongue. One of the detectives said it could be caused by Pepto. They actually solved the case based on that.

    Surely you are just fine and not going to die, but I still thought it was a funny coincident. :D

  • Omgoodness I have no idea. Seems the other girls know what they are talking about though. I probably would have freaked out if I were you.

  • Definitely the pepto. First time it happened to me, I thought I was dying! lol

  • This is weird and has me curious: did you brush your teeth before bed and this still happened?
    I'm just a super nerdy sciency kind of person, so anomalies fascinate me.
