Hi,

First of all, migraine does not cause a sore tongue. But the medications for your conditions can cause this problem. You should assess the auto-antibodies in your blood to adjust the dose of the drugs you take. Moreover, the prolonged use of antibiotic kills the normal flora in your mouth, resulting in the rapid growth of harmful bacteria. These bacteria can cause a sore tongue.

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

Regards,
Dr. Dr/Mustafa, Neurologist
