Is it possible to get a tongue sprain?

I think I sprained my tongue.


Answer by  blang (45)

The tongue is not unlike many other muscles in the body and can be sprained. Treatment can include ibuprofen for the inflammation as well as reducing activities that may strain the tongue such as eating, speaking, or any other things that can cause the tongue to be overworked. This should help the tongue heal soon.

While a sprained tongue is not common, a muscle spasm of the tongue is. A spasm may cause pains that shoot from ear to jaw for a few seconds-hours.
