Having a sore tongue is not a known side effect of Symbicort, however I would suggest you see your doctor just to be sure. If your tongue is swollen then that is definitely a serious side effect.
When using Symbicort, you need to make sure that you rinse your mouth well. If not, you could come down with a yeast infection (thrush) causing whitish patches to your mucous membranes, including the tongue.
Your tongue could possibly develop some tenderness, but watch for swelling, tingling, numbness, trouble swallowing (including your lips) which could indicate a severe reaction and requires immediate medical attention.
