  • You might want to see a doctor - I once ended up having a painful yeast infeciton on my tongue after taking oral antibiotics

  • Describe your pain a little better. Does it hurt under the tounge or on top? Do the taste bud areas hurt? Do you have white patches on your cheeks?? How are your tonsils?
    I actually "strained" my toungue once, it got a charly horse! I hope you feel better and if we had more of a description, maybe we could offer more suggestions.

  • Is it possible that you burned your tongue? I had very similar symptoms after burning my mouth badly once on some melted cheese (I will NEVER do that again lol). Also, please dont get upset for me bringing this up, but sometimes sores or pain in the mouth can be a sign of an STD. Regardless, if its been a few days since the pain started I think its time to see the doctor. If its a burn, a yeast infection (called "Thrush"), or something else, it will need medical treatment, and the sooner the better. Good luck, I hope you feel better soon!

  • I have something like that too, its on my right side, its like under my toungue and down. Its gross, there are no patches or anything but it almost feels like its been burned by a chemical or soemthing.
