Once again I have a lovely crop of mouth ulcers. The rheumatologist says it is part of the connective tissue disease I also have. :cry:

They drive me mad, they can be so sore at times :?

Is it also a ME thing, does anyone else suffer? :evil:

    Oh Dale they are a real pain aren't they :evil:

    My daughter suffers with them frequently due to a blood disorder that she unfortunately has and sometimes has as many as a dozen at a time.

    She has tried just about everything possible to try and alleviate the discomfort they cause, without much success until recently. A mouthwash called Aloclair (now on the market) has really helped and coats the ulcer relieving the pain. It's not cheap though at £8.60 a bottle!

    Have never heard of them been associated with ME, but nothing would surprise me to be quite honest ..... it seems to throw everything our way :roll:

    Hope this helps.

    Thanx Katie

    Maybe at last there it is something that is not down to the ME. It is something I seem prone too. I have some paste called Adcortyl in orobase that works well. Only trouble is it sets, so I only use it at night cos it glues my tongue to my cheek.

    We call it cement!! :P

    (mouth cheek Teedie! :twisted: )

    As long as it's not James' cheek :wink: :lol:

    That is something else we have in common Dale - mouth ulcers :twisted: They are so painful and i have always been prone to them. :x

    I also bite the inside of my cheek which causes mouth ulcers too. I can empathise with you. :roll:

    You want a brilliant cure for hiccups ... and it works, honest !

    You have to put your arms round behind your back and then press with your thumbs just below your ribcage and hold that for a couple of minutes.

    If you can't reach yourself then get someone else to do it for you, I have never known it to fail yet :lol:
