Brownish discoloration on the tongue. Pain on the tongue while swallowing. Due to smoking?

Hi , first of i smoke , but i have only been smoking for about 5 months now , maybe 3-5 cigarettes a day. About two days ago while brushing my teeth i noticed that i have a slight light brown coating over my tongue , an also my tongue hurts a little on the left side while a swallow. I don t have difficulty swallowing it just hurts a bit every time. Is this anything serious ?

May be merely glossitis. If so, it should improve by taking multibitamins rich in B-complex for a week

If does not improve, consult doctor
