I have pain in the back of my tongue on both sides. It seems random nothing seems to be related to the onset. I haven't seen anything strange bumps or?

Tongue pains: The tongue is a powerful muscle and can be strained but this would be rare.

They may want to image it to ensure it isn't impinging on vital nerves. ...Read more
