Mucus cyst: The para-functional movement of your tongue and jaw may be causing a muscle pain that can cause this type of pain. Resist the temptation to play with the cyst and the symptoms may go away.

Yes: Tongue's a muscle. over-use it at it can cause soreness. 2 solutions 1) Hard as this is to accomplish, don't play with cyst with your tongue, or 2) See an Oral Surgeon to have cyst removed.
