Remove the piercing: It sounds like this may be badly infected, at the very least you should remove the piercing jewelry for a few months to let it heal. If your pain and swelling do not resolve, you need to see a doctor to look at your tongue.

Are you nuts? Remove the hardware and see a Dr, preferably a ENT.
