I always had that "swollen tongue" feeling when I was low on B12.  Now all of a sudden I am getting a cut up tongue too.  It seems like it may be related to the B12 as it has happened twice right before my shot.  The sides of my tongue hurt like they have paper cuts all over them and the edges are rough and swollen.  I also noticed what seemed like a cut in my back gum.  Then I noticed twice that I had what reacted like a pimple on my back gums.
is this how mouth issues start since I have not had them before? Or does anyone know if this could be something else?
I don't think I was dehydrated.  I did not eat any rough foods and I have not changed my meds in a very long time.  Any thoughts from those of you with the mouth issues?
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa [until I surrender to the bigger meds]
I'm riding on the escalator of life....

This is definitely what my "Crohn's mouth sores" feel like when I'm in a flare.  It feels like a knife has cut up my gums.  Very hard to talk.  Tongue gets the same thing, too.
