1 doctor agrees

In brief: Possible glossitis

an inflammation of the tongue itself or irritation of the lingual nerve, the main nerve which works the tongue, or possibly a low grade fungal infection.
Sounds like inflammation to me- upload photos for further information. usually, easily treated with anti-inflammatory medication, or in combination with antifungal therapy
