I have had a sore throat for about one and a half weeks. Now in the last three days my tongue has been a green color and is very sore. It's hard to eat or drink. My tongue has bumps and cracks in it.

My tongue is red and feels like it was burned. However, I haven't burned it and this has been going on for a couple months. It is hard for me to eat, as everything burns. I take a vitamin B-50 tablet daily and I get a vitamin B-12 shot once a month.

I usually get sudden and unbearable pain in my tongue. I consulted with many doctors but they couldn't find any reason.

My tongue feels sore and numb, and is white in color. This is just like what I experience with my fingers when they are cold.

I have soreness at the back of my tongue and at the base underneath. I can feel a small bump, and it has been itchy for about three days. It's most noticeable in the morning and lessens as the day goes on.

The muscles in my tongue on the right-hand side do not work. I have difficulty swallowing on the right-hand side.

I was eating my lunch, and I opened a tuna can that I mixed with salad after I had tofu that I mixed with strawberries overnight. One of these items caused my mouth go almost on fire immediately. I had a reaction: The roof of my mouth had a lesion, my lips inside went white, and my tongue had some bumps like pimples. I have no idea what it was. All of the symptoms eventually went away, but I don't know what caused them.

About 20 minutes ago I realized that I really feel uncomfortable in my mouth. My tongue seems like became more rough so when I rub it against my gum I feel every single part of it rubbing.
