sore tongue?

My tongue has been sore for two weeks. I think it's because I was overusing it by self testing. I think I made it worse by inadvertently doing things to make my mouth excessively dry (baking soda toothpaste, not hydrating etc). I've fixed those things now.

I've been trying to rest my tongue but it's only marginally better. Anyone ever have this and if so how long until it went away?

Thanks

Hi - I dont have this with my tongue, but I have had soreness from constant testing...on my hands and my left leg. I would think the same can happen to a tongue, as it is a muscle.

Lately, I've had fears from salivating and waves that I noticed on my tongue, so I've been moving it around a lot, just from being nervous, and I have noticed a slight burning and swollen type feeling, like as if I burned it. I take it as it's just over-worked.

If you said it's marginally better, then that's great news. It may just need more time.

I get a sore tongue just about every year around this time, and for me I suspect it is one of two things: Dehydration, because the weather is colder and I am not drinking as much water. Or acid reflux. A burning tongue is one of the signs that you are having reflux issues. It always goes away once the weather starts warming up again. It has always been one of my weirdest symptoms though.

Also, a lot of the time when it feels like you have "too much saliva", a lot of that is just that your tongue is sensitive and you are feeling the saliva that you normally wouldn't feel. So it feels like you have all this extra water in your mouth even though you don't.

Yet ANOTHER symptom I've mentioned on here that someone else on here has pointed to acid reflux and stomach issues. I am picking up my referral to an ENT tomorrow. Finally able to make an appointment and get to the bottom of my stomach and throat problems. DIdn't realize the burning feeling could be that...thanks!
