In another study published in the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, atrophic glossitis from vitamin B12 deficiency was investigated.

The study noted: “Glossodynia, or painful sensation of the tongue, can have a spectrum of etiologies, such as local infection, trauma, nerve damage, glossitis, or the enigmatic neuropathic pain syndrome, burning mouth disorder.

“Careful history-taking, physical examination, and appropriate laboratory screening can differentiate these causes of glossodynia and direct further therapy.”
