Burning tongue

Even though my reflux has died down I still have what feels like a burning tongue. Anybody know a good way to stop that?

Re: Burning tongue

I switched my toothpaste from a whitening toothpaste to one that doesn't not whiten. I think with the acid content in my mouth and that whitening crap in the toothpaste (yes I brush my tongue) I think that was causing the burning sensation. Bought new toothpaste without whitening last night and today their is no burning (either that or no acid came up last night).

Re: Burning tongue

But i heard somewhere that the whitening substance of toothpaste is actually baking soda (im not sure ) and isnt baking soda also used ot reduce acid?? i also read that soemwhere here.. anyways you should alsobe careful with bursing your tongue, not to hard.. you migh tlose your taste as the buds are small and delicate.. there is this tongue cleaner you can use.. its like a tongue depressor but its bendable.. just run it on your tongue and it really cleans without causing damage

Re: Burning tongue

Yeah I do tend to brush my tongue pretty well, maybe I'll stop doing that. Today my tongue is burning again even though I swtiched to a non whitening toothpaste. I'm getting fed up with this reflux, it doesn't make any sense. Nothing works against it.

Re: Burning tongue

I have that for 2 months now. I told my gastro dr. She seems don't understand what I meant. I explaint that it likes chilli sit in my mouth! My teeth are squicky clean. It is going to fall off soon because the acid keeps burning my poor teeth. Chewing a gum is help. Could I chew a gum while I sleep?

Re: Burning tongue

Hi Pika, it means the acid is coming up and destroying the enamel of your teeth when you sleep and also burning your taste buds. I seemed to have stopped my burning tongue problem by stopping exercising so late. Anything I do (eat, exercise) after 8PM causes me to have mega-reflux when I sleep. Anyway if your not doing that try using Arm & hammer toothpast for Enamel, make sure it is not the one with extra whitening. This helps the pain from the teeth and the enamel also take a Pepcid complete around 3AM, I notice the reflux hits you hard after 3AM, this way Pepcid is at full strength when it starts. As far as curing acid reflux I have no idea, no idea at all.

Re: Burning tongue

A way to stop the burning tongue is to rinse your mouth with 4 oz of water with a tsp of baking soda. You do that every hour for about a week or 2. The baking soda will neutralizes the acid in your mouth. I have done it and it works.

Re: Burning tongue

I did 2 things, not sure which helped...

I put a drop of tea tree oil on my toothpaste before brushing.

I also started chewing Arm and Hammer Sugar Free Baking Soda Gum.

The burning tongue went away and (KNOCK ON WOOD) has not come back.

Yes I did order it online. I could not find ONE store, pharmacy, etc. that carried the gum (I live in NJ) Pricewise it was very reasonable.

Re: Burning tongue

My burning tongue is back, I'll try the baking soda suggestions and see if that helps. One thing that bothers me is before when my tongue was burning my throat hurt and my teeth hurt, now I just have the burning tongue without any other symptoms. Very strange.

Re: Burning tongue

Hi All,
I am new to the board so not sure how best to post new thread. I have suffered from a sore tongue since I visited my dentist last September. I have since seen him 6 times, had a crown put on one tooth, I have seen an ENT once and 2 different Oral Surgeons. I have tried 5 different medications, including neurontin, amitryptilline, kenalog in orabase, magic mouthwash, and fluocinonide gel. I just started using an over the counter mouth wash, toothpaste and dry mouth gel. I am at wits end with the awful and very localized pain. It gets worse as the day goes on and wakes me up at night. My most recent oral surgeon thinks it is something called burning mouth syndrome and I am going to see another specialist (it is taking a month to get an appointment) in the hope of getting some relief. Has anyone on this forum ever been cured of this?
Thanks for any help you might be able to offer me!

Re: Burning tongue

If yours is being caused by acid like mine you might want to try what I've started to do and seems to be working. First of all you have to make sure you do not use any whitening toothpaste. When I wake up in the morning I'm using baking soda on my teeth and swish it around on my tongue. At night I use a toothpaste called enamel care (strengthens the enamel and stops sensitive teeth). So far this has been helping me as my burning tongue and sensitive teeth have almost gone away. Also, don't brush your tongue at all, seems to make it worse.

I have had the burning tongue with my gerd for 4 years, it's driving me crazy, so far I have not found anything to help, it comes and goes with no rhyme or reason.
