    Hi Diana

    i too have had a burning tongue, throat and ears for the last year, I am now under a ENT, at first they thought it was reflux but none of the tablets work, at the moment they are thinking allergies, but you have my sympathy it is the worst feeling, I gave this everyday, and it does get you down, peri is the worst thing, no wonder we are all going crazy with all these symptoms they are endless xx

      HI sue

      It's been 5 months since I posted I am wondering how your doing with BMS I'm still hanging in with gels and ice and bland foods. It's a long road.

      I have been suffering with BMS 1 year now. I first thought it was GERD and had every test imaginable. I did my own finding and went to my doctor to confirm that this was what I had. We have tried multiple nerve medication and they all make me drowsy and tired. They have taken my medication away to see if it made a difference and that did nothing. They have checked deficiencies and all okay. I recently went to an ENT and he prescribed a mouthwash with lidocaine antibodies and cortisone and this does help. He tested with bloodwork for allergies but it came back negative but now wants to do testing for mold. He says it can cause. Anybody else have allergies testing done. They even thought maybe it's like a yeast. I feel helpless and very depressed. Sometimes I feel it would be better if I was gone because to live like this is horrible.

    Hi Diana, I also have the burning mouth. Sometimes it is worse others a little better. I just had my hormones checked and the doc said that that I was close to menopause. I have had this symptom for several years now. At first it came and went but for the last year or so it has been here pretty constant. It sucks, but I have learned to live with it....

    Hope you feel better soon! xx

      Hi Topo,

      Yes it is not pleasant- sad its very strange and when I tell co workers they cannot or never heard of it to comprehend - i have learned to live with it yes some days are better and now I am able to cope - for me cold water and cold yogurt ice cubes and cereal with milk help alot - apples are also helpful- i have had this for almost a year and I am in menopause - hope we get relief soon ox

      Hi Glitzy,

      I also have had the metallic taste in my mouth from time to time and a very dry mouth so that my tonque sticks to it. My gums are also very tender and have receeded. I have a lot of trouble with my gums lately. As far as I have read this is also part of perimenopause. It is no fun though... xx

      Good Morning 

      I to suffer with BMS and my gums also are painful both upper and lower.  I do however grind my teeth with I'm sure could be part of my problem with my gums and jaw.  The reason I do that is because of my BMS and my tonque sticks to the roof of my mouth.  I have had this problem for about 3-4 years now, hard to nail it down exatly because it just creeps up on you.  I have not found anything to help me, when I can't stand it anymore I take a sleeping pill and just go to bed and sleep it off.  At least we are not alone in this and we are not crazy.  Hang in there we have no other choose, I'm sure it will go away.....
