See your dentist: for further evaluation especially since it had been recurring for over 2 weeks. There is a special oral screening device to determine your condition. Based on the findings , you may need to be referred to as an oral surgeon, an EENT,..depending on the complexity of the case.

Normal anatomy: Circumvallate papillae are they large taste buds on the tongue. They are a normal anatomical structures of your tongue and do not go away. Hope it helps.
