i get a red tongue in morning when i wake up and after swilling with water it goes away, it happens most mornings, anything to be worried about?
Red tongue at any time means Heat of some kind.
If externally caused you might expect other symptoms to back it up, such as fever, rash, sore throat, rapid pulse, possibly a nosebleed, etc. See our page on Heat for more. This red discolouration wouldn’t normally disappear from swilling your mouth with water.
For more on the theory of how external Heat penetrates, see our page on the four levels: how ‘warm’ diseases penetrate.
Another cause of Heat is dietary. This is an internal cause. After a night’s sleep, without anywhere to go, this heat from digestive processes could lead to a red tongue. In this case, you might expect smelly stools and/or bad breath and thirst as supporting symptoms. You might also have perspired during your sleep. If digestion is the problem, it could be from something eaten (see possible foods under Hot foods). Usually this kind of heat wouldn’t lead to a rapid pulse unless there were more extreme symptoms leading to what is called Stomach Fire.
Of course, none of the ‘hot’ foods listed may be your particular problem if your digestion just tends to run naturally ‘hot’, but if this were the case you’d know you tended to be hot from normally wearing less clothes than others and always complaining about the heat indoors! This cause of heat might well be improved by water, which is yin and therefore has a cooling effect. But moving around on rising a.m will also tend to dissipate internal heat.
Another possible cause is yin deficiency which you can read about via that link. However, I doubt if redness from this would disappear as quickly as you say from just swilling some water around your mouth.
So, unless the redness is caused by a dye in something you’ve eaten, or possibly blood from your gums (which is often related to Stomach Heat or Fire) the most likely cause is dietary or from heat generated internally.
Of course, you do not mention the coating on your tongue which might lead down various other paths of conjecture. For example, if your tongue is red but has no coating, this suggests empty Heat.
Equally, where the redness is on your tongue opens up another range of possibilities.
Sorry for this long answer to what seems like a simple question, but Chinese medicine usually comes up with an initial diagnosis which is then refined according to other signs and symptoms.
