Tongue Bumps

Well, I've warmed up now, but my tongue hurts. Am I the only one who has these problems? You know, when you have this tiny bump somewhere on your tongue, which is very painful? You can't see it or anything, when you look in the mirror, but it hurts whenever it touches your tooth or whatever else. I get them occasionally, and then they eventually just go away as mysteriously as they came. Does anybody else have them, and more importantly, can anybody tell me what they are? I always theorized that they were some kind of strange tongue-pimple. Somebody I spoke to once said that she thought they were from an infected taste bud or something. (See? I'm not the only one who gets these after all!)

Anyway, today I had a tongue-bump, and it was bugging me. So as I sat at my desk quietly coding away, I was messing around with it. Like you mess with anything abnormal in your mouth, a loose tooth, dental work, whatever. I'm incapable of leaving such things alone, and I believe that most people are like me this way.

I came up with the "brilliant" idea of attempting to pop it, in order to make it go away. It was bugging me. I wanted it gone.

Well, popping it is not the solution, it turns out. It was messy, very painful, slightly bloody, and now my tongue-bump is larger and more painful than ever. Darn it all. I wish I knew how to fix it, and better yet, how to keep such things from coming back. Anyone? Please help.
