I have gone through your query and can understand your concerns..

As per your complain it seems that ulcers on the bottom.of tongue along with severe pain seems to be due to Apthous Stomatitis leading to inflammation inside mouth and along with it there seems to be apthous ulcers or canker sores..
It can be deficiency of iron and vitamin B12, stress, physical trauma to the tongue, allergies, acid reflux etc..
I would suggest you to consult an Oral Physician and get evaluated and a thorough clinical evaluation
and investigations like blood tests can help in diagnosis..
Treatment of underlying cause will relieve the symptoms..
As of now you can start gargling with a numbing mouthwash containing Lignocaine to relieve the
You can also take a multivitamin tablet daily..
You can take anti inflammatory painkiller like Ibuprofen..
Suck ice and do cool water rinses..
Avoid spicy food..

Hope this information helps..

Thanks and regards.
