What does a very sharp pain in tongue mean. like a sharp needle jab or you bit small area hard. Takes 5 to 15 sec to subside. No tingle/numbness?

In brief: Diagnosis is the key

Sharp tongue pain is usually caused by something obvious and visible like trauma.
In some instances, though, a discolored or painful tongue can indicate more serious conditions, including vitamin deficiencies or blood disorder. See your dentist for a proper diagnosis and treatment.
