Hi welcome to Healthcaremagic

you must be clinically examined, to find the cause of tingling sense under the tongue.... If the tonsils are enlarged, and crosses the mid line, and if there is difficulty in breathing, then it is good to get tonsillectomy done... Only after the infection is healed , they will do the surgery but not now.... you can consult a ENT specialist , they will guide you...Hope i have answered your question
