this is very unlikely to be oral herpes going on. Have you been seen yet by your provider?

Also google geographic tongue too.

yes i did, but why should it start after all these years?, i still wonder weather it is related to my risk in anywayas it started about 5 months after, how much can i rely on my herpes testing? and how would herpes on the tongue present itself?.

they don't know what triggers geographic tongue but it's fairly common ( and painful at times too ).  

herpes doesn't typically reoccur on the tongue and not in the pattern that you've described. You have no reason at this point to doubt your testing you had done.

thanks grace, it could be the 18 months of stress over this incidence causing it.
