What Could Be Causing Needle Like Pain In My Tongue?

When this happens the pain is so bad that I can't eat. It hasn't happened in many years. I had it checked out years ago by 3 different doctors and all they told me was it was something that I have to live with. I want to know what is causing it and what it is.

Answer

I haven't been able to find anything to explain the specific type of tongue pain you describe. Several different types of anemia can cause tongue pain, but I couldn't find a description of the type of tongue pain. Perhaps, since you haven't had the problem for several years, whatever was causing it has corrected itself. Our bodies are amazingly good at healing themselves when we get good nutrition and proper sleep.
