Can anyone tell me why when I accidentally dropped a tablet into something I was eating and resulted in me chewing it, my mouth, mostly my tongue and throat started burning? My throat started to feel like it was closing, and my tongue was on fire. I tried rinsing my mouth and ice cubes on my tongue, but nothing helped. It has been about 5 weeks now and I still have pain on the tip of my tongue. Please help, and should I go to my physician.
