Hi, I've tentatively been diagnosed with burning mouth syndrome. My palate and the side of my tongue on the left are incredibly sore. Sometimes feels like a burn, sometimes like I've got a thousand tiny cuts that have had acid poured into them. I have no idea how to help myself. My gp won't do any tests and I feel they have abandoned me. The pain has been so bad recently that I've thought about ending it all.
I have an ENT appointment on Monday and just want some ideas of what to ask him. I've seen two oral surgeons and both say my mouth is fine but it really doesn't feel that way.
I have reflux but am taking nexium twice a day for that. I've also asked for anti reflux surgery to see if that helps.
I feel so alone. Talking hurts and I was a really sociable person but now I feel cut off.
Any tips or ideas of how I can confirm the diagnosis and so try and get some help would be greatly appreciated.
