I appreciate why you need to find out what’s happening. It can be very painful and sore when you bite your tongue. Tongue biting is normally experiences with a tonic clonic seizure. During a focal seizure some people can chew and/or smack their lips.



It would be advisable to keep a diary of this for when you see your specialist. If you are not due to see your specialist, you could discuss it with your family doctor.
