Is your tongue painful at all?
Any bruises or bleeding from anywhere else?
Are you sure you have not bitten your tongue whilst sleeping?
Have you had a CBC, clotting profile blood test, to check your platelets/clotting?
How long does the bleeding last for, and what do you do to trigger it?
Reply to Kamran's Post: no pain -nobruises -no bite -idont know to thelast two questions
The last 2 questions were:
Have you ever had a blood test?
When the bleeding starts, how long does it last for? What stops it?
im new at this i don't know what more you want
Basically, if your tongue is bleeding for no apparent reason, then I would seek advise from your doctor. It would be worthwhile having a blood test to look at your platelet count (these are required to make blood clot, and when your counts are low, these could make you bleed), and a coagulation test (which measures clotting products in your blood). It may also be worth getting your doctor to examine your tongue.
I hope this information has helped.

Hi there. Sorry, but I dont see why that is a terrible answer. I was giving you some pointers as to what I think might be contributing to your tongue bleeding, and what tests might be required.
