Hello Marie,

It takes a while for our tongues to heal or get back to norm. I have bit mine numerous times. I used a Warm salt (Lots of salt) water solution to rinse my mouth, b4 &/or after meals.

I Highly recommend you seek a Neurologist ASAP! Your First question B4 making an appt: Does This DR specialize in Epilepsy? Is your husband on any medications or treatments for Epilepsy?
