Why Do I Bite My Tongue When Im A Sleep And The Pain Wakes Me Up
Tongue too large: Your tongue could be a bit too large for your mouth or your lower jaw might be small. Perhaps you grind your teeth in sleep (bruxism). Do you snore?

Ive noticed that I bite down on my tongue while I sleep. This has been happening for a very long time. And It's very painful when I wake up.
Very well could be : That you have something referred to as bruxism, which is abnormal grinding/clenching of the teeth, mostly at night. It's often related to stress or teeth alignment issues(malocclusion). You may consider trying an over the counter night guard to see if that helps, otherwise talk to your dentist about this.

What causes biting tongue in sleep. I wake up with bite marks on both sides of tongue. How can I prevent this? I am sleeping/unaware when I do this.
REM Sleep Cycle: In deeper stages of sleep, the muscles of the eyes (rem) are active, as well as the muscles of mastication. That's why some people clench and/or grind their teeth at night. If you are an "active" bruxer, you can "nip" the sides of the tongue. Once swollen from the injury, it is easier to bite again. Be careful. Talk to your dentist about a night guard or Elavil 10mg to decrease bruxing in dreams. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

In addition, biting your cheeks and tongue could be due to a slight misalignment of your teeth that can be sometimes remidied by some adjustments.

You need your sleep. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
