Wow, I had no idea it was so common. I've only ever heard of two people other than myself having it and I don't know either of them personally. Mine struck...a few years ago, I'm not entirely sure when. I went to the doctor for it because it started out like a sore on my tongue but I discovered it via google before I went and decided that's probably all it was. Thankfully I was right. Oddly, I've always had the sort of crack/line down my tongue, since I was a small kid, and I'd never thought about the two being connected.

Sometimes the pain or the spots will come on really easily, even if I haven't really had anything the slightest bit salty or acidic, but then other times I can eat a ton of that kind of stuff and it doesn't bother me at all. Mine usually gets the worst if I eat a lot chips due to the salt and sharpness, though.

i've had mine since i was a kid.  Pineapples are the worst! I love pineapple juice, but i can't have too much.  I also had my tongue pierced before. I was worried i would have problems with it (cause of the huge crack down the middle), but it didn't effect it at all.

My mother-in-law, husband, both of his brothers, and so far one of my sons all have it. My mother in law is affected by spicy things. She can eat sour just fine, but hot peppers and stuff get her. My husband can't eat any citrus fruit, strawberries, or raw tomatoes at all or his will start bleeding. My son is weird, we can't figure out what triggers his. We think it may be cheese, (since it only gets really bad when he eats cheese) but we don't know for sure.

Our doctor told us it is usually hereditary, and there is usually one type of thing that will cause major outbreaks. And it could be anything. And all people are different. There is a medication that is supposed to help a bit, but the side affects are far worse than the symptoms. So it isn't usually given as an option for people. And you'd be surprised how few doctors even know about a geographic tongue.

My husband and son's tongues always look like the picture posted. They both have the crack down the middle and have had it since birth. My middle son gets the occasional sore, but we aren't sure if it is signs of geographic tongue or if he just bites the sides of his tongue.

I started getting the tongue spots when I was 20 years old.  I went to the Dr. and they did a swab test and said it was a fungus that everyone has but only some people are sensitive to.  Oh and she said it was a symptom of stress.
But apon researching it......it looks as though medical researchers dont really know a whole lot about it, like how or why  it starts  check this article out    http://www.emedicine.com/derm/topic664.htm

mine gets really bad after falafel, lemon, tahini, hummus, sugar, sour, vinegar
my tongue looks exactly like Aly's pic right now, mine WILL change in a few days  I have not gone very long in between spot location changes

I also think it is contagious too, My BF got it after never having it after we started dating
we have nicknamed it "FUNKY TONGUE"

does anyone else get the white rings around the spots that the medical websites are talking about? I dont...YET anyway

sorry we all have it but its nice to hear we arent alone

I don't know about being contagious. My Mother in law has had it since she was little and her husband never got it, and I've been with  my husband for 12 years now, and I don't have it.

I have that too! I've had my dentist tell me I had it since I was about five. It gets worse when I eat citrus fruits and spicy things.

Underneath the bridge
The tarp has sprung a leak
And the animals i've trapped
Have all become my pets
And i'm living off of grass
And the drippings from the ceiling
It's okay to eat fish
'Cause they don't have any feelings
