Cut Tongue
I have little tiny cuts on my tongue. Its been there for a few weeks. I have a problem eating food due to this. I have a pretty good diet of meat, veggies, fresh fruit and have lots of salad. I also drink alot of water. What could possibly be causing this problem?

Tim, it’s difficult to say without examining you first, but it might be due to early pellagra, pernicious anaemia, excessive smoking or a rough tooth. The best would be to see your doctor and to have him sort it out for you. Good luck.
