Dentist 's  Response
Hello and thank you for your question.
Based on what you described, I would recommend going in to a dentist to be evaluated and possibly get a biopsy. The sides of the tongue can have multiple pathologies that are causing these issues. It can only be diagnosed with proper evaluation and biopsy testing.

Best Regards
