Really bad burning mouth

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi ladies

I've been diagnosed with Burning mouth syndrome by the maxofacial specialist. The bloods came back ok. They took a mouth biopsy 3 weeks ago and get the results in 2 weeks. Every day it is dry and burns but some days the burning is unbearable,like today. They gave me a special mouthwash which didn't help. I've read lipoic acid has helped people. I think I may buy some. The tongue,roof of mouth and gums really burn. Anyone else had this ?

    Hi Michelle, I've been diagnosed with the same thing this week. I've had trouble eating lots of different foods- this is what starts it off. I'm hoping it is totally due to hormones and that it will pass. I've been told that anxiety makes it worse so I'm trying to stay relaxed as much as possible. Which is not easy as you know 😰

    I certainly have had burning mouth and burning right now. Very unpleasant. Nothing seems to stop it. It effects the food pallet too. I tend to need stronger tastes in my mouth due to burning. I seemed to like drinking gallons of cranberry juice. Good luck.
