I have had my tongue pierced for 5 years, I woke up this morning and it hurts so bad. How can I help with the pain? Will it go away?

  • Did you sterilize the ring (or whatever it's called) during those 5 years?

  • Could be that the bar is lower quality metal than you had before or that it has an imperfection that is irritating your piercing. I would switch it back to the old bar or a new high quality one, then rinse your mouth with warm water periodically to see if that helps.

  • Go to the dr. An infection in your mouth can quickly go to your brain.
