Are you, perhaps, "chewing" your tongue when you are anxious?
Actually, vitamin deficiency is often the culprit. Be sure you take a complete vitamin tablet daily. Add folic acid supplements daily as well. You may find one extra folic acid with the vitamin will improve your tongue in three days or so. If not, add up to three more, but slowly, every four days add one. Your body depletes the vitamins faster because anxiety makes it work harder. Increase fruits and vegetables as well.
The second thing is to see a doctor in case you have developed thrush. This yeast is common with people who feel stress a lot or whose immune system is compromised. Even a cold can cause this effect. If the middle of your tongue has white areas and normal color on the edge it may well be thrush. Or a coated tongue, which means it needs to be brushed or scraped at least twice a day when you brush your teeth.
I seriously doubt you are biting your tongue. It would be very painful and you would know it. We all do it from time to time, right? Teeth slide and we chew down. The tongue bleeds a lot.
