BAD tongue chewing!!!
 
i chew my tongue repeatedly. I do it when Im in deep thought, working, before sleeping, driving, and relaxing. I chew my tongue around 3000 times every half hour or more. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?

Re: BAD tongue chewing!!!
 
I have the same thing happen to me. Do you suffer from OCD or is this just an annoying trait you've grown up with?? I have OCD and I always stick my tongue out while I'm drawing something or concentrating, it's a family trait. I don't think it's related. But, the tongue biting sounds painful, and if it is related to OCD I could see it becoming a real problem. Once I was obsessed with oral cancer and analyzed my tongue constantly and was always biting the sides of it and doing weird things with it inside my mouth. Of course, all the repetitive biting and so forth I would develop little sores and then further myself into panic....it also sounds like it could be caused from anxiety. I would try some breathing exercises to see if that helps. I know their hard to do, especially when you can't calm yourself down, but it's worth a try.
