Does burning mouth syndrome ever go away?

Edited , 4 users are following.

I read that it rarely simply disappears. I hate the feeling, and don't know what is causing it. I cannot get a doc appt because of covid! It has been only a bit over a week 😦 Anyone woth that or anyone who had it and simply resolved?

    Yes, it does go away. However it can last for 6 months to a year sometimes, but it does eventually go away. Unbalanced hormones (peri-menopause) can cause it. Sorry you are having to deal with this. I am sending a prayer your way.

    Yes it does go away. I had it last month, was ongoing for two weeks, felt like ive been burnt in my mouth by hot food. I also had lump in the throat sensation. Honestly i can relate what you are going thru, but rest assured it does dissappear out of the blue.

    I am currently going this as well. I feel like I burned myself on the tip of my tongue and since yesterday I have been having this odd salty taste sensation in my mouth. Anyone else have this salty taste?

      I am sorry to hear you are having such problems as well. My mouth and throat and ears also have random changes in feeling and taste. I haven't had salty taste yet, but taste gets altered with the burnt feeling. I hope it goes away soon.
