Groves are normal but hurting is not normal this can be attributed to your smoking or some deficiencies and even due to gastritis or hyperacidity. Take care of your
bowel evacuation also. Amongst herbal remedies we recommend punarnava mandur one tab. bd

ENT Specialist Dr. Naveen Kumar's  Response

The grooves can be normal but the burning sensation can be secondary to vitamin deficiency. Please plenty of fruits and vegetables as well drink plenty of water. You can try taking Vitamin B-complex to help in regrowth of the epithelium of the tongue. Avoid smoking and alcohol if any.
