Less dexterity in tongue, tight frenulum, soreness, discomfort on speaking. Cure?

This might sound silly... but this morning I woke up with less dexterity in my tongue ... like, my frenulum was tight... when I tried to stick out my tongue to brush my teeth , it feels like i stretched my frenulum and now it is sore and very uncomfortable to speak, or chew. Its kind of disconcerting. Any info might be helpful...

HI I have gone through your mail and as you have said that today morning you noticed difficulty in speaking,swallowing and protruding the tongue out you feel very tightness in tongue and uncomfortable.After considering your complaints I am suspecting that you are having either acute oedma (swelling) of your tongue or odema of floor of oral cavity (Ludwig's Angina), you are advice to consult your E.N.T.specialist for physical examination than only final treatment may be decided. Thanks.
