Hi I have a similar thread on the go as I too have a horrible burning tongue, I however have ulcers at the sides that feel like I am chewing glass or needles - do you have these or is it just your tongue (can't seem to view your profile to see the pic)

I did read something whilst I was googling/on various forums that there is something called Gepgraphic Tongue which sounds like what you are describing. I don't think I have this as I don't have patches - mine just feels like I have burnt my mouth drinking a hot drink.

Hope you find out what it is. I have every sympathy as I know how awful it feels...

think its there now - can you see it ?

Yep, have seen it now. Looks painful - but doesn't really look the same as mine... Hmm, sorry I can't help - did you google Geographic tongue to see if it fits your symptoms?

let me know if you find out what it is...
