Tongue and non-painful bumps

I have had 2 bumps each on both sides of my tongue, close to the tip for about a week now. They don't hurt but I recently noticed them when looking at a canker sore I had about 2 weeks ago.
I don't know if maybe my tongue is irritated from the orajel I used to numb the canker sore, or if the toothpaste i'm currently using is too harsh, they are the only things I can think of. I looked a little on the internet and read something about irritated papille, that seems to be the closest explanation I can find. I also just changed my toothbrush right before this happened. What do you think? Concerned, kris62303

It doesn't sound too serious but too be sure, you should have an examination done by a dentist.   It is difficult to advise without seeing your tongue.

Yeah I have the same thing. I have these sore wisdom teeth and the last time I talked to a dentist he said that my problems would probably go away if i had my wisdom teeth removed. I don't want to remove them. ha ha.
