    Odd subject, I know, but I was wondering if anyone could help me out. For the past 2 days the bottom or my tongue has been kind of very sensitive and kind of sore. It its uncomfortable to lift my tongue up or to stick it out and sometimes I can feel it hurt when I chew and swallow.
    Anyone have any suggestions at what to do? Gurgle some salt water? I bet it's just swollen for some reason I dont know why.
    But yah, any suggestions at how to make it feel a little bit better?

    Did somebody suck on it really hard during kissing? That happened to me once, and my tongue was bruised for weeks. If not, you may need to go see a professional.

    I had a similar issue with my tongue a few weeks ago, only the soreness was on top...I just rinsed with listerine a few times a day & the issue resolved itself...it's totally back to normal now...

    what were you doing that made your tongue sore? :wink:

    i've never had this problem before, but i would suggest you drink some hot green tea. just don't burn your tongue lol. green tea works for everything--well, for me anyway.

    if the soreness doesn't go away on it's own you should consult a doctor ASAP.

    If it isn't gone in a couple of days, go see your dentist. I'd go see them anyways.

    make sure not to take the tea and mouthwash together LOL :tongue:


    a dentist is a good idea. but an oral hygienist wouldn't be a bad idea either.

    If you're feeling sharp pains in a small area when you move your tongue it could something as simple as a canker sore for which there are OTC treatments.

    Canker sore - MayoClinic.com

    If this isn't the case then definitely bring it up with your dentist even if it fades before your visit.

    make sure your dentist checks your entire mouth for oral cancer...gums, tongue, roof of mouth, insides of cheeks & throat...mine always checks every time I go...

    Killing birds aint gonna solve your tongue problem. Let them live.

    Just get a strong mouthwash like Corsodyl.

    WELL after 2 weeks of having multiple sores on my tongue, which was very painful at times.... they have finally all gone away. I went and saw my good ol' dentist today and said that it was due to stress (since I'm moving to Australia soon and it can be pretty stressful planning all that) and he said if not that, it possibly could have been due to my new toothpaste i switched to two weeks ago. My PRO HEALTH toothpaste is going to be thrown away today haha.

    Thanks guys for helpin me out when I posted this thread with answers. :) :biggrin1:
