The burning tongue and sore mouth is one of the many symptoms of pernicious anemia or B12 def. The difference between the 2 is that pernicious anemia is the lack of intrinsic factor in the gut that absorbs B12 and it is a life long series of injections to keep the level up, it bypasses the stomach and goes directly into the tissues. You can have a B12 def do to diet and it can be corrected by vitamins and diet, B12 def you still have the intrinsic factor but you don't eat enough foods with the b12, pernicious anemia you can eat all the foods high in B12 but it won't do you any good as your body can't absorb it. I have pernicious anemia and have been giving myself injections every 3 weeks now for 9 yrs.
