Saw my physician regarding my sore tongue.
He said to rinse with warm water and salt and use a tongue scraper(bacteria) instead of brushing with toothbrush ,which I have been doing.
He said it was most likely caused by too much vigorous brushing of the tongue and all the "whitening" chemicals I had been using that made my tongue sensitive.
I stay away from acidic foods.
I had a complete series of blood work done and there was no medical reason for it.
My oral surgeon said to rinse tongue with an antacid if there's a flareup.
It's better now.
Hello The blood tests you had ran, do you know if they ever checked your Folic Acid? It would not be included in a regular CBC or chemistry panel, it would have to be ordered separate. Folic acid deficiency can cause you to have a sore tongue
Foods high in Folic acid you might to try to see if it helps are:
Beans and legumes- such as alfalfa, peas, lentils, lupins, soy, and peanuts.
Citrus fruits/juice, whole grains and wheat bran, Dark green leafy vegtables, Poultry, shellfish and pork, Liver- I personally say YUCK LOL
I hope this helps. Have A Nice Day!

It is interesting to know about this at the same time I can understand how troublesome this is to 'live with'!!
Please let me know a brief of your diet. Have you got your intestinal tests done? How much coffee do you drink? Alcohol? Do you suffer from constipation?
