Thank you for using Healthcare Magic.
The most likely cause of the tongue to suddenly protrude from the mouth would be swelling of the tongue. This could be caused by an inflammatory or allergic response to something.
I hope this helps you. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
