This morning I awoke when a sore and swollen tongue. It looked a little whitish, but not like thrush. The edges of my tongue felt bumpy (not tiny little spots, just an irregular surface). I had a difficult time eating breakfast due to the soreness. I took an antihistamine, but I don't know if it helped or not. I also have some mild tenderness & swelling just under the left side of my chin; however, it is more noticeable to the touch rather than by observation. My lips (which stay chapped) feel a little tender as well. Although I've been able to eat, the food feels strange in my mouth. It's been over 14hrs and I have seen only mild improvement from when I first got up this morning. I take supplemental vitamin B (3 different ones in 1 pill), calcium & vitamin D, and a multivitamin.
Did you eat anything highly acidic; like a lot of sour candy. It sounds like a chemical burn; which if that is the case the top few layer of tissue will slough off in a few days and the pain should be gone in a bit over a week.
