tiny sore under tongue

I'm  a 39 year old mail don't drink  and never smoked  for the last 3 weeks I've had this painful small sore under my tongue right at the base in the middle and pain under  my chin by my throat and no doctor seems to know what's going on. they look at the sore and say i'm not sure what it is or why your having pain in your neck area let's just keep watching it.
any ideas would be helpful.

So no history of trauma or injury?  Does it swell up or hurt any particular times of the day?  I'm thinking it may be a salivary gland problem such as a blocked duct.

He said the cause is viral  and he's using a wait and see treatment. I go back to him in Aug unless they get bigger.
