Bite: Sounds like something that i also get after biting my tongue eating. Pretty irritating but goes away after a couple of weeks. I try my best to ignore it. If you have a persistent bump see your doc.

Numbness important: The extent of the numbness, duration would be helpful . The side of the tongue is a common site for oral cancer . Not going away is important. See a dentist or oral surgeon for evaluation, and a possible biopsy
