Impossible to say without an examination. A swollen tongue can occur due to injury, different diseases, or tumors. See your dentist, an oral surgeon, or an ENT doctor.

I have a high Ige reading up to 2000. What could be the causes of this. Also get swollen tongue quite often, with ridges on side from teeth.

Allergic bruxism?

Allergies
The scalloped ridges on the side of your tongue likely are from nighttime clenching or tooth grinding. In 1980 Marks published an article in the AJO about the link between bruxism and allergies in children. It is available on PubMed. See your allergist and dentist for treatment.

A swollen tongue is not normal... you need to determine the cause, and then treat it. A tongue that continues to swell can cause respiratory distress.

I have a dry mouth no matter how much I drink and swollen tongue with indents along the side.

The tongue indents

Stringio
are not uncommon and are usually caused by your tongue constantly lying alongside or rubbing on the inside of your lower teeth. The dry mouth can be caused by a host of medical issues, medications, etc. See your physician for an evaluation for the dry mouth and a dentist for a dental evaluation. Also ask both your dentist and physician about using Biotene which is a saliva replacement therapy.
