Gums and tongue sore, eyes burning and scratchy. Could it be vit. B2 deficiency?

In brief: Not likely.

One would really have to work at becoming vitamin deficient to that degree.
Much more likely to be a viral illness or even an allergy plus a primary oral inflammation.

In brief: Wouldn't think so

Your diet would have to be severely skewed to be that deficient.
May have 2 concurrent problems. See your General Physician for exam/lab tests. See General Dentists to address gum/tongue issues. Don't try to self-medicate without definitive diagnosis
