Sore mouth/burning tongue caused by stress/anxiety

Edited , 19 users are following.

Hi can anyone help

Ive been dealing with alot of stress and anxiety for a while now which has caused a whole range of symptoms.. more recently (about 2 weeks ago) my tongue has been feeling sore as if its been burnt its constant and very annoying! At night my mouth is also so dry and its difficult to sleep.. can this be caused by stress and anxiety ? It sometimes even feels like my lips are burning..

Anyone else had this please help..

Ive looked it up and seems like alot of per menapausal women get this.. i am in my mid twenties so i doubt its that !

Thanks

    Hello sally

    Have you tried some mouth freshener, I get a dry mouth and it seems to be caused by bad breath,

    Do you need to have a Dental Checkup, if you have problems with your teeth that can caus problems with breath and dry mouth espcially if you need some fillings

    The tip of my tongue gets a burning sensation when anxiety starts to rear its ugly head. It also happens when I'm low on B vitamins, but mainly it comes with anxiety. I just have to ride it out, because I haven't found anything that helps yet.

    Hi Sally

    I am sooo with you on this. A few years ago I started having a painful tongue. I went through all the checks to no avail. Then it started to really hurt when I ate spicy food. This past year I dealt with a lot odd issues and life is better and the tongue pain is gone!

    HI

    I'm suffering too!

    Feels like pins and needles in the end of my tongue, it's sore in the middle at he back and the sides are too. It's really getting me down now as it's been like this for a good 2 weeks.

    I'm also really anxious so my throat is tight and sore. Hate feeling this way!

    Doctor no help at all, 😭
