I have small bumps on the back of my tongue and are not painful. I am getting through a cold. Could this be related? Maybe an allergic reaction?

Could be

Allergic_reaction
It can be related to a cold, or it may be the normal large bumps that can occur and you just noticed. There can be some other causes so you may want to see your doctor.

painful white bumps on tip of tongue could they be herpes?

Not usually

Pain
The tip of the tongue is not a common site for Herpes. You need an exam by a dentist, oral surgeon or physician to have a diagnosis made.

I get white painful bumps on my tongue every time I drink beer. Is it a coincidence? Can alcohol cause that? I've never had herpes but could I on tong

Sensitivity to beer

Open-uri20130225-8212-r8btlr
Since u say it happens every time u drink beer, I would say that precludes it being a coincidence. I can't say for sure what ingredient in the beer is the offending agent, but clearly u r sensitive to something in beer. And "sensitive" u can read as "sort of allergic". It could be wheat, could be any number of things. Try switching brands. Try a diff't liquor, like spirits, to see if same thing ha

what could cause painful bumps on tongue after eating?

Allergy

Pollen
Might be food allergy or possibly "oral allergy syndrome" which is related to pollen allergies but caused by some raw fruit and vegetables.

I get those painful little bumps on my tongue sometimes, which I call lie bumps. What can be causing them?

Inflamed taste buds?

Tongue_papillae
Some bumps on one's tongue are normal (they are taste buds). However, they should not be painful. I would suggest that you see your own dentist when you have them for a definitive diagnosis, as we cannot see them, but your own dentist can. If they occur only when you lie and your dentist cannot explain it, then perhaps????????????

I have a few clear bumps on middle of my tongue. It's not painful but irritating as I can feel it when I swallow. Any ideas on what it could be?

Clear bumps

Pain
They can indicate several things, usually some sort of herpes type situation most are painful but don't have to be. also, some STDs would manifest as such. I would suggest if they have been there a while, or not, that you see your physician and maybe get some tests done.

My tongue is very painful underneath on the left side. There are no bumps just a low pain constantly, then increased pain if I move my tongue or try?

See a dentist

Pain
Pain means something is wrong. There is a major salivary gland that sits on each side below the tongue. It could be a clogged salivary duct or a calcification in the gland. It could also be a muscular problem. Go see a dentist for evaluation and diagnosis.

I have swollen taste buds on the back of my tongue. Also chronic sinus issues, but bumps are new. They're not painful, normal tongue color. Allergies?

Unrelated

Not itching and thus unlikely to be from allergies. If they don't go away after 2 weeks or get worse , see your doctor since they do not appear to pose any immediate danger.
