    Hi psyched, yes I have experienced that burning tongue sensation.  I have tried frozen banana, ice water & lemon.  Its only a short time relief so I will be interested in your feedback also

    Yes, especially whan I eat something ascidic,   espedially citrus, sometime even a little sore bump.  Lavender oil on the tip helps quicky.. Give it a try...use a good brand.For me it works every time.

      you are very welcome. Just dab it on that sore spot, then for a minute of so, try not to wash the oil off with saliva, breath through your mouth so your tongue stays dry during that time. It usually works for me the first or second time I dab it on.

      I don't expect it to, but not knowing exactly the problemt is, I'll give you a heads up. If it stings a tiny bit for a few seconds, no problem. If for some reason it burns, you can stop that NOT with water, but with olive, or any cooking oil. I hope it works, if for no other reason than if the jokes go on my pants are absolutely not going to stay dry.eek

      I didn't see the word "oil" quickly enough. Had a quick mental image of a jumbo black olive on my tongue, and of course sticking it out at people. With my luck someone would snap a picture, and I'd be featured in one of those "People of Walmart" photos.

      Deb, I am so sorry you almost burned your tongue out...no more fish and chips. Honey, I had written to Psyched out, who had the problem, and told her that if it burned  NOT (yes, I used caps) to use water, but to use olive oil. Any good cooking oil alleviates essential oils that get "hot".

      There are oils that will get "hot" on outer parts of the body also, like oregano. Never use water, it drives the oil in, olive oil mixes with and "cools" it. The same with eating hot peppers, never, never drink water...it will get worse. Grab cheese, or milk and you will alleviate the burn.

      Again, I am so sorry you were in such distress, dear Deb. Cia

      Gas?...Gas? Did I miss something here? Oooooohhhh. I get it! Lavender is very good for covering the occasional odd smell.

      Seriously, I have had gas lately (not from lavender) and almost asked about it. I think I know why. One of anxiety's effects, as you well know, is to tense every muscle in our bodies, (sometimes all at once) including inner muscles. I boiled it down to whenever I am particularly tense, don't eat, or eat very lightly (soft boiled egg over crumbled bread..no butter, chicken broth with saltines, etc. nothing the tummy has to go to war with trying to digest.)

      If I wandered way off course, just think of it as unasked for info. and forget it.  Now I have to spray some lavender around...just in case.lol

      Eggs have a way of getting revenge on everyone. When my stomach would get really bad, I'd do that BRAT diet for a couple days. It was helpful unless the doc said that there was an infection. Then it was called the BRAT and antibiotic diet.

      I recall something about eggs and sulphur. Yeah, that could do it, too. So we are down to chicken broth and crackers. We will all be reeaallly thin, reeaaally fast. Twiggy on reverse steroids. (anyone remember Twiggy?)

      I just know someone is going to make me regret that I asked that.eek

      thanks tons & I sure hope you find relief also..  Last 2 panic attacks had me running home like a power olympian once I was able to get out of the 'FREEZE' moment.. just wondering if I might have been biting down on my tongue without knowing.. Oh well, at least I wasnt booked for speeding lol

      I remember being told about Twiggy, but that's as far as it goes. lol I'm going the opposite direction, and gaining weight, even with anxiety. I've pretty much been in bed or on the sofa for the last 4 months. I was quite ill, ended up with surgery in May, and one of the 5 incisions has decided to not heal as well as the rest. So, I'm stuck with a hole in my stomach, and I found out the hard way that sitting up makes it worse, so does sitting crossed legged and leaning forward. Oops!

      Since anxiety can cause people to grind their teeth in their sleep, I don't doubt that a full on panic attack can cause you to bite down on your tongue. In moments like that, it's hard to remember everything we do.

      I had stitches and steri-strips for a week. It looked pretty good, but soon got worse. I was told that it wasn't infected, just keep it clean and let it get air. After finding out that my white blood cell count was over 16000, I went to the family doctor. He gave me stitches, without using a numbing agent, and some antibiotics. All was great until I ripped a stitch or two. It's right above my belly button, so I have to stop sitting in a weird position. Since I've reclined, it's been healing nicely. The surgery was on May 9th, so I'm ready for this journey to be over with.

      Thanks bunches, Bubbles. lol

      The surgery was in May, and this year that month just sucked. There was the surgery, then Mother's day, my birthday on the 18th, and the 21st made it one year since my mom died. The time prior to the surgery was insane. My lab work was really bad, liver enzymes were off the charts, I had to take 3 different antibiotics at the same time to cover all grounds while waiting for additional labs to come back. That was a total of 70 pills in 10 days. I had an ultrasound, then a CAT scan, and that showed a mass on my pancreas., all while waiting for lab results that were testing me for all the Hep viruses, and leukemia. It was all a whirlwind, and that was just the start of it. All of that recovery time is what made me find this forum, which has been helpful, comforting, and a lot of fun with you, and Cia. smile

      Laughing always helps. After my mom's death last May, I was physically fine for a month. After that, I was sick with something every month, usually my stomach. Then in March the doctor finally ordered tests instead of just handing out antibiotics. Long story short. My surgeon said that I should have had my gallbladder out years ago. It was full of stones, and many were really big. The gallbladder had no functions, was half calcified, and hid itself under and towards the back of my liver, the fused itself to the liver. Basically I was a ticking time bomb, because if it burst I would have needed instant surgery or it could be fatal. Another thing is that calcified gallbladders are a high cancer risk, and by the time it's actually caught, the cancer has typically spread to other organs. I lucked out, but I'll still take a title of general. I can be called General Chop Shop smile

      I'm picky about who I get wacko with too. I always have to test the waters before opening my trap. People usually have a filter between their brain and mouth, but mine is broken, or simply doesn't exist. I suffer from a severe case of word vomit. Okay, maybe suffer is the wrong word, because it's actually fun. Word vomit acts up in public too, but not in a bad way, or so I think. A good example is when mu daughter and I went to the mall, and some dude said to me "Excuse me, would you be interested in a free estimate for new windows in your home?" I replied "I don't have windows " and kept on walking. That stuff isn't planned, it just slips out. The look on his face still makes me laugh.

      I get what you're talking about with the heart. It must suck to go though that, but it's good that they're keeping tabs on it. Late night bull riding is none of their business, but a good way to make them jealous. You could always run in circles every couple hours, and really make them wonder. smile
