Hi. Thank you for posting your query.Traumatic ulcers can be really painful.Is this a first episode of tongue trauma or does it happen frequently?If it happens frequently you need to get your teeth checked by a dentist for a sharp tooth cusp or improper occlusion.Apply a topical Anaestheic ointment like mucopain to prevent the burning sensation while eating and to get relief from the pain.Be very careful not to injure the area again.It will heal within a week.
