I have devloped several deep fissures in my tongue. They are so painful that I can only eat very bland food most of the time.  
 
If I eat anything mildly spicy-- like salad dressing or even tomato sauce-- my tongue gets bright red and inflamed and will stay 'aggravated' for hours.
 
This is either a new Lyme symptom (nerve sensory) or a side effect of the Ceftin/Mepron I am taking--- oral thrush ?? but I have no other symptoms of thrush.   I am also not deficient in vit. B.  
 
Anyone experienced a sore tongue with fissures?

I don't think I have experience with fissures, but had what felt like small cuts on my tongue. I had changed toothpaste, and was holding my mouth open alot to try to relax my jaw muscles. When I stopped those things it went away.

With you maybe the meds are causing a dry mouth? Someone on another site had mentioned a biotene mouthwash for dry mouth for that.

I hope you find something that helps, take care

When I had a sore tongue like that I found taking a homeopathic yeast cure and swishing my mouth out with salt water several times a day and then sucking on an acidophilus tablet or taking a swig of kefir usually took care of it.

Hey Cat!
I have had those tongue fissures before - from oral thrush. I did as Achevinggrace suggested with the salt water and kefir, and watching for anything that contained yeast -and it helped a lot. That and watching my sugar intake more closely from processed foods.

I hope you get this straightened out quickly!

I break up my post because my eyes have been effected by TBI's as well, which makes long paragraphs very hard to read.

Thanks for the advice!
 
I've been drinking Kefir lately in addition to my other probiotics and it seems very soothing.  Trying the salt water too.
