I have had a sore tongue for nearly 2 years and cannot find what is causing it. I am unable to eat anything even remotely spicy because it will burn for a long time. It is also sensitive to texture, it hurts when I eat course foods, such as crunchy croutons.
The color is normal, but the surface has slight cracks.
My Dr. tested me for a B12 deficiency last year & I was found deficient, but not severly so. I have been taking B12 injections & my levels are good now, but there has been no change in my tongue.
I've ruled out other conditions I've found on the web. I've investigated a connection to other health conditions I have, namely hypertension and depression. I am taking meds for both of these, but by process of elimination I do not believe my sore tongue is drug related.
Does anyone have any ideas?
