Many causes : There are many causes for a sore tongue. The most common cause is biting it. There are also canker sores, viruses and other infections that can cause pain. Most things will heal in a few days. If your pain is increasing, you have difficulty eating, doesn't go away in a week you should see a dentist to have it evaluated. Sooner if you are concerned.
