Tongue feels bruised. Soreness in throat. Difficulty in swallowing. Tonsilitis?

My tongue feels bruised, like on the sides in the lower area and also back of my throat . I can feel the soreness when massaging my throat on the sides on the outside on my neck as well... Is it low immunity? or maybe tonsillitis? I tend to grind in my sleep.. And the other night I forgot my at my friends and I grinded pretty badly, bit my cheek.. and bit sides of my tongue. is it possible could be bruised or like I pulled a muscle? Sometimes it hurts so bad I randomly stick out my tongue and try to stretch it out, and it relieves it for the time being. My throat is a little inflamed and a darker brown/red but not a red red... Cant figure it out and dying in pain... Hard to swallow too.

hi... you have sorethroat, and aphthous ulcers, odynophagia..
You need to see your ENT surgeon for the throat examination, culture and sensitivity..
you need to put on antibiotics, analgesics..multivitamins are to be taken regularly..
do salt water gargling..
for aphthous ulcers you can use anaesthetic oral gel like dentogel..
