Brief Answer:
May be a nutritional deficiency

Detailed Answer:
Hi Mam,
I
The symptoms suggest that you may be suffering from the nutritional deficiency. But to rule out other causes you may go for the thorough ENT check up or send me the snap of your mouth and tongue. I would order Blood sugar level, Vitamin assay, Mineral and hematological investigations. We can discuss about it during the follow up.

Thanks
