See dentist: Hard to tell given the brief history but the problem may be from teeth grinding or clenching at night causing dental crack (if that's what you meant). Your tongue swelling may also be from biting (from teeth grinding or malocculsion). I would recommend that you consult a dentist first. If the above conditions have been ruled out, see an allergist to evaluate the tongue swelling.
