Strange dark spot on tongue

Well this morning when I woke up and went into the bathroom and looked in the mirror I noticed that a strange dark spot had appeared on my tongue which hadn't been there a few days earlier. I was really freaked out by this and had no idea what it could be. It does not hurt at all, is not swollen or bumpy at all, and is located just a slight bit back from the tip of my tongue. It seems like it is just discoloration of my tongue but I'm still worried. Anyone have any idea what is could be or what could have caused this?

On my tongue in the mid-back, there is a dime-sized spot that is brown. I don't know what it is from, although there are similar, smaller spots on my fingers around the knuckles. Perhaps it is a way of the body detoxifying? or a reaction to pollen that I have an allergic reaction to in the air... I feel relatively healthy, although am just recovering from flu-like symptoms.
