Thanks for your query, I have gone through your query.
The geographic tongue can occur secondary to stress, anxiety, nutritional deficiency etc. So nothing to be panic, consult a oral physician and get it evaluated. Mean while you can take nutritional supplements like multivitamins(vitamin B6 and B12). You have to lead a stress free life. Be cool, do not take tension. Consume lot of vegetables and fruits.
I hope my answer will help you, take care.
