Stupid Tounge

Alright, a few years ago I had 'Big Red' gum and it messed up my tounge, the sides of my tounge atleast. I couldn't eat or drink anything for like 2 or 3 weeks. I was a moron a few days ago and got the gum thinking it wouldn't happen again. I ate a piece and it started happening again, a few days later my mom said the sides of my tounge look irritated. What the heck is wrong with the sides of my tounge? Is it just the gum or what?

it sounds like you are sensitive to the cinnamon in it and it's burning your tongue.  A way to find out, might be to find other products with a matching ingredient and see if you have the same problem.   Process of elimination if you want to find out, but I just think it's the cinnamon.

The thing is--its only the sides of my tounge, its like the taste buds are peeling off the sides of my tounge. I tried to brushed my tounge but it only irritated it. Today I tried to drink water and it bugged the **** out of the sides of my tounge, for about a week now I haven't been able to eat anything or let it touch my tounge when I eat.

The same thing happens to me when I chew Big Red. I don't know why, but I do know that I'm not chewing it any more. What's the definition of insanity? Doing the same thing over and over, expecting different results...for me anyway.
