What causes pain in tongue?

I have really bad pain in my tongue on the left side on my tongue under it. I have tried all kinds of oraljell and evev got some liquid med from my dr. none of it helps. I just sit and cry sometimes it hurts so bad and when I numb it with oral jell it numbs it for a few minutes and then the pain comes right back. I think a dentistmessed up a nerve in my tongue when he pulled 2 teeth. I have bee going through this for over a year. help.

Hello and welcome.
Thanks for sharing your concern.

Healing of ulcers on tongue takes time.Therefore please do not worry .Avoid continuous irritation and dryness on your tongue.Minimize spicy food intake as well as acidic and hot beverages.
Wait for two weeks,in case the symptoms persists please go for biopsy.
you should also start vitamin B complex for fifteen days.
Hope it helps.
Thanks.
Take care.
