What's wrong with my tongue?

There's bumpy, sore rings on my tongue that are usually white in the morning. They are very sore and they come and go. Not sure what could be causing it.

Hi Anonymous,

Thank you for your question and welcome to Empowher. If you are experiencing the white bumps on your tongue which also provides an uncomfortable feeling, this could be thrush which is simply a yeast infection of the mouth. This is not a life threatening condition although you will need to go to your doctor for treatment. I hope this helps.
