Gum infection: If you were developing Ludwigs angina your floor of mouth would be getting harder and swollen and it would be hard to move your tongue. You need to get some antibiotics from your family doctor or an urgent care. Penicillin works the best in this case if you are not allergic to it. Rinse your mouth with listerine mouth wash. You have to get your mouth checked by a dentist.
