Prob unrelated: You should seek a consultation with an ENT or oral surgeon regarding the weakness in your tongue. This may be indicative of other problems.

Need evaluation: If you symptoms are recent then this is not related to the wisdom tooth extraction and is something new. Get this checked. See an oral surgeon.

Consultation: If i were you, i would seek a consultation with one or all of the following: oral surgeon, primary care physician or ENT specialist. Personally, from your symptoms, i would see your pcp first.
