PLZ PLZ HELP ME OUT
first of all chill out... your not going to lose your tongue... and second you posted in a public forum ANYONE can answer....with useless information or not so please be careful how you say stuff some people who are trying to help you might get offended....
It doesn't sound like something you need to worry about but to be sure you should have it looked at by a dentist or an oral surgeon. It's difficult to diagnose without seeing it in person...it really could be anything like thrush, HPV (if your sexually active), an infection or nothing at all just your normal taste buds....
do you have dry mouth?bad breathe that you notice? are they painful?
