Burning Mouth

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi all

Does anybody else experience a burning, stinging sensation on the roof of their mouth and tongue. Feels like it is burnt from a hot drink.

GP told me it was reflux and treated as such with no effect. Saw a GI specialist who does not think it is reflux, just had endoscope and biopsies today but I think it is related to peri, stress, nutrition.

    What Causes Night Sweats and Dry Mouth?

    During menopause, the body's endocrine system undergoes a dramatic shift with an overall decrease in the levels of estrogen and progesterone.

    One of the side effects of this change is night sweats.

    When the body experiences a decline in estrogen, the hypothalamus sends out inaccurate signals that the body is overheating and must cool rapidly.

    Excess sweat and flushing skin result, creating the sensation of night sweats. 

    During menopause, changing hormone levels affect the salivary glands, often leaving menopausal and postmenopausal women with a persistent feeling of dryness in the mouth.

    This can be accompanied by a bitter taste in the mouth as well as problems with bad breath.

    This is due to the drying of the mucus membranes.

    This is also responsible for a feeling of dryness in both the nasal passages and the vagina that some women experience during menopause.

    If you have dry mouth often, it can be uncomfortable or indicate that a more serious medical condition may exist.

    Saliva does more than just keep the mouth wet: it helps digest food, protects teeth from decay, prevents infection by controlling bacteria in the mouth, and makes it possible for you to chew and swallow.

      Burning Mouth Syndrome

      Some women going through menopause may feel pain or a burning sensation on their tongue, lips, gums, or other spots in their mouths. 

      You may also find that some foods taste different during or after menopause.

      Again, the culprit is a hormone imbalance.

      Decreasing hormones can affect your taste buds and make you more sensitive to pain.
