Please describe your tongue problems.

Comment from: khenryall, 45-54 Female (Caregiver) Published: March 31

My tongue always feels like I have burned it eating hot food. At first I thought it was to much salt, so I stopped. Then I thought it could be acidic food, so I again took notice and stopped eating foods with a lot of acids. Now it seems like no matter what I eat or drink, my tongue is continually sore and Burns. I told my doctor, but never said anything and now it is just very aggravating. My food and drinks either taste bad or bitter and it is very depressing when no one believes you and thinks you are nuts. My tongue is always red and very sore.
