what does it mean when your tongue stings?

Allergic reaction?: Could be an allergic reaction to something, could indicate anemia, or could be a symptom of a tongue condition (geographic tongue, candidiasis, etc). See if you have tried any new foods lately that could irritate your tongue. If it is red and irritated i would see a dentist to determine the cause.
