After a going for a walk and pushing myself a bit too hard I got my usual pain under my tongue. It's like a cramping in my salivary glands under my tongue. I never thought of this as being something that doesn't happen to everyone in general before. After it happened yesterday I ask my AB mom who pushed herself a bit too hard physically getting up the really steep hill we climbed at the end if she ever had that kind of salivary gland pain under her tongue after working out too hard. She looked at me like I was crazy. I have always felt this kind of pain my entire life in connection with running/jogging and increased heart rate.

Are there any other blood types here that get pain in their salivary glands under their tongue or along their jaw right after over exerting themselves while exercising??? I have a guess that it might just be an A blood type thing or maybe it's just a "me" thing.

CristaAlysaA*.

My whole family is type A and none of us get those symptoms after extrenous exercises, and I have gym instructors and surfers in my clan.  I have read that in some people, not keeping up with the right amount of fluids for their constitution, may affect the salivary glands to the point that they may become swollen, painful and develop stones that may require surgery.  So, the question is, do you drink enough water before, during and after exercising?  If you think you do, next time you go for one of those exercise walks, try to drink twice as much water than you had previously, before during and after, and see if the symptoms persists.  Just a suggestion, but you are bound to get many more advice from this helpful community.  Hope you can get it resolve soon!

I am a hydration nut! If I drank more water before exercising I would be constantly peeing myself while exercising, especially due to being 37 weeks pregnant! lol As soon as I got back into the house I went staight to the loo than to get some water. The pain always lasts until my heart rate comes back down to normal and only ever causes pain like that when I over do it.

Maybe the fact that your family is all very very active has something to do with this not happening. How far back in your family have people been really active for A blood types? Maybe genotype is a factor too. Your daughter just found out she's a Warrior though right?

Fascinating!

CAA*, 37 weeks pregnant!!! Sorry I missed that, we probably talked about it in some other thread, but my brain has been a bit too busy with many other things and forgot.  Just want to make sure to congratulate you on your pregnancy in case I have not done it before.  Well, do not overdo it!!  Overdo it for As is a bad bad word when it comes to exercise, it can make those cortisone stress hormones show their nastiness at anytime, anywhere.  By my family I was mainly thinking of my two kids, my girl (warrior) and my son, possible teacher.  Yes, they have been doing it for a while, but you see now Metta is having some lab results issues that may be the result of overdoing it all this time.  Sooner or later hits you.  My son on the other hand, has had normal lab blood results, but the overdoing it may be affecting his back and joints a bit.  So, he is watching that.  He is lucky in that he has find gf in Las Vegas where he spends most of his time now, and no surfing in Vegas ...  

Hubby and I are past strenuous exercising, having the opposite issue of not doing enough, even for an A.  Our Zuri is fixing that for us now. Anyhow, all this family history might not help you much and be not relevant to your case, except to illustrate the fact that we As have to be careful in not overdoing it when it comes to exercising.  BTW, do you sweat a lot during exercise?

I'm an A, but I never had any symptoms you describe when exercising. Even with the bad health condition I have now, I don't get those symptoms when I exercise (and I just walked up 12 flights of stairs during work).

Thanks! I am very excited about being pregnant! Have been having practice contractions all night actually! lol It's 4:35 in the morning here and am still awake, I'm so glad I have as many naps as I do or I'd be in trouble. haha

Yep, I've learning my bodies cues to slow down and do peaceful exercise. The best excises modalities that I've enjoyed doing in my life have been yoga- the more stretching meditative stuff, pilates - with a good instructor that was focused on following the pilate rule "if you feel the exercise the next day you did too much", swimming - except for the chlorine and I really just float around more than anything lol, bike riding- down hills and not back up them too much, and nice meandering walks with my wiener dog, especially along the ocean, which I am really missing by being so far from the coast right now.

Do I sweat? No, almost never! For me to sweat it has to be a really humid day and I have to seriously get my heart rate up there. Or go into a sweat lodge! That was an awesome experience. But no, I don't sweat. I make sure I exfoliate a lot to make sure my pores are open and happy though.

Hmmm, maybe I'm just really really unique because of my epigenetics! What if I'm a new form of non secretor, warrior, A positive that has developed pain as a response to increased heart rate like a safety mechanism? lol I'm like a sloth!!! Don't move too quickly you'll stress yourself out! haha I think I might be finding this a bit too amusing. Then again, I am always easily amused! lol

Mmmmm   Have you noticed any other symptoms? tiredness, fatigue, loss of concentration, color of tongue before and after exercise? swollen? bumps? ... I would not know what to do with the answers, but it may help you get a complete picture to get the right help. It could just be your 'thing' as you put it, but if it is an annoying gene, you are in the right place to silence it and awaken the required good ones to guard against them!! On your guard too Warrior!!

My only symptom is the pain under my tongue and sometime along my jaw line. Also it might be helpful to note that when I was eating my BTD or when I stupidly tested to see if I could eat potatoes... (lol that was so dumb) my teeth would ache and be sensitive to hot and cold. Also my jaw would ache. Never the salivary gland pain under the tongue though unless like I said before, worked out too hard. Silly me... and for some stupid reason I was thinking I should run a marathon, good thing I ended up pregnant instead! I was going to run it this June. Haha, that's never gonna happen! Cause I was only going to do it to lose weight. Which as an A would be silly.

I don't feel like a warrior in life at all though. Yes as a GT I understand that is what I fit but I'm such a pacifist. I'd rather make love, not war. lol

Just trying to help you figure this out, do you have fillings in any teeth near where it hurts?  I had some salivary pain under my chin on one side, in my 30's.  This was before finding that my thyroid was unwell, but I had another "functional md" recommend having my metal fillings removed.  I think it may have been the problem for me (mercury toxicity) which may have also caused the thyroid thing...
But right now I am having a cold/allergies? going on and my right side under the chin feels sensitive, like the allergies have affected me there.  Only feel it on the right side, not the left.  I wonder now if the "glands" there are a bit swollen.  I rarely get colds or the flu, but I traveled a lot
lately, and caught something.  Or it's allergies....?How are your sinuses, etc?  Do you ever have like a post nasal drip thing?     By the way, congrats on the new baby soon to arrive!!!

Warriors are not necessarily fighters in the "hit someone on the head with a club" sense of the word. Surviving is also a way of fighting. Dr. D says this about Warriors: I’ve called them “Warriors,” but perhaps “war survivors” would have been a better name

I had forgotten about this until I saw this thread, this morning.  When I was in my 20's and 30's I jogged frequently.  I would sometimes get a strange sensation in my jaw, my lower gums would feel tingly and almost numb, and a few times I did get that pain under my tongue.  Nothing ever came of it.

AWESOME!!! I'm not that much of an oddball after all! You're weird too!!! lol

Speaking of weird, I'm in a weird mood as I didn't get much sleep all night. I understand about the Warrior thing. I was just being silly about it. I am a survivor. That is who I am. I'm also extremely stubborn. I had a friend that told me that I was like the energizer bunny when it came to relationships, even though I've had some really bad ones I "keep going and going". He just wants to give up and have nothing to do with women on a relationship level anymore. I think he is a Nomad though.
