Burns on either side of my tongue

Just wondering if anyone has experienced this as well:
I chewed some Big Red cinnamon gum (a pack with 5 sticks over the course of 2 days) and now my tongue feels a little swollen and almost burned on both sides. I can barely talk and any other food I eat makes my tongue hurt so much. Is it possible the gum could have been so strong as to have burned my tongue on either side where I would have chewed it?
