It could be a variety of things.... from my experience..
1) Too much citrus
2) Allergic reaction to another food
3) Allergic reaction to meds
4) Yeast/Thrush (white bumps on back of tongue for this one?)
or this one was my major factor... I don't get it anymore because I eat better and take Vitamin D..
My tongue would get big red "patches" where it looked like I had "lost" a layer of skin on my tongue! Came on fast, hurt like hell, and made eating/drinking suck. It is called "Geographic Tongue" and it is linked to nutrition deficiency, more common with people with Diabetes.
You have Sjogrens, so it could also be associated with that. I would take a pic for your next visit.. If you have a web cam on your computer/laptop, you could always save it in a file?
