Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Swollen tongue usually accompanies infections, hypothyroidism, amyloidosis, etc. I suggest you to get thyroid function tests (TFT). Sore shoulder after surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome may be due to division of nerve in carpal tunnel.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
