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? If your tongue is too large for your mouth, that increases the chances that you snore and even have sleep apnea (stopping breathing in sleep), which can be a dangerous condition and requires treatment by a sleep medicine specialist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I bite my tongue during sleep it is so painful I can't even let go,it takes about 30min to ease off the grip,pain never wakes me though. Phycological?

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.

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.
