    Hi Keckie, 

    There are multiple reasons why your tongue would do this and to be fair it is quite common so don't go getting yourself worked up about! Easier said than done I know. 

    Are you taking any Inhalers at the minute by any chance? Very common cause of tongue coating / furring. Obviously deficiencies can cause it like you said but so can other harmless things such as Acid disorders and things. 

    Nip down to see your GP just to get it checked as who knows you might just need a course of antibiotics but don't worry about it too much.
