Is it circumvalate papillae or anything else?

For the past few days the bumps on the back of my tongue have been swollen and hurting just a little bit. they are where my skin connects to my tongue and its hard to the touch.

welcome to healthcaremagic
I just wanted to say that they are "circumvallate papillae" and why they have enlarged,
if systemic salivary gland problems can cause the enlarging of the circumvallate papillae.
you may had habit of chewing tobacco or smoking,
it may be due to infection
please consult your doctor nearby for details
