Burning mouth, tongue, syndrome?

I have the symptoms of this, anyone else had it?
Ive been told its acid reflux but the symptoms of Burning mouth/tongue fit my problem almost perfectly, only difference I have is burning is only on one side of tongue and throat?
Just read that it can last for years after menopause!!!
I hope not, will end up driving my car in to a brick wall, its really getting me down!

Re: Burning mouth, tongue, syndrome?

I seem to have this also - I'm still in peri - but getting closer to full menopause. For me - it seems to move around to different parts of my mouth and tongue and comes and goes for durations of time. I just had it a couple of weeks ago, and now it's gone.
I also get very tender gums - so much that they hurt to brush - and I cannot floss too much anymore. I've found that rinsing with warm salt water helps a bit, and rinsing with a mild mouthwash helps get food out when I can't floss.

I get acid reflux once in a while - but it doesn't seem to be related to the burning mouth. At my last dental cleaning, I asked about it - and he did imply that it was most likely hormonal related.

Re: Burning mouth, tongue, syndrome?

Are you still suffering from burning mouth? I have had it since May. I have been treated for many different things...acid reflux, thrush, ENT, dentists..nothing changes the fact that my tongue and gums burn on the left side only. I've been through medipause several years ago. Nothing seems to help and nobody can figure out what is going on. The only relief is when I eat, drink, chew gum or sleep. What a way to go through life. Any help you can give me will be appreciated.

Re: Burning mouth, tongue, syndrome?

I don't know if this will help, but my mom used to have burny tongue, she was told it was a zinc deficiency, she used zinc lozenges or vitamins, and it went away.

Re: Burning mouth, tongue, syndrome?

I have had burning mouth syndrome for several years and believe it is related to some of the dental work I had which probably affected the nerves. I use losenges, gum, gabepentin and behavior modification to keep my mind off of it. It has not lessened very much. I am past menopause. I have Gerd but it is not related to it.

Re: Burning mouth, tongue, syndrome?

Thanks for the encouragement. I have had it about 5 years and take it one day at a time. It can be very draining but I am thankful it is that's all it is.

Re: Burning mouth, tongue, syndrome?

thewhichisdead,

Try increasing your B vitaimins, I read somewhere it's a deficiency in B2 I believe. The B vitamins are water soluble so it won't hurt to try a super B complex to see if it may help.

Hope this helps,
Missy

Re: Burning mouth, tongue, syndrome?

I have had BMS about 5 years and very little has worked except holding ice or frozen teething ring in my mouth. When I am not busy doing something which does distract, I play solitaire on my IPOD. I had a health provider tell me they had 2 other women with BMS and one had visited serveral clinics around the country and found no answers. Just make sure that it is not something else. Med you may be taking. I had a lot of dental work on one side and feel the nerves have been rewired wrong. Be positive.

Re: Burning mouth, tongue, syndrome?

Hi ladies and Missy222: I was just reading on another board about this BMS and the poster said her doctor told her it was the B vitamins that were causing this. I've been having this too and I'm on a hormone rollercoaster here. It's got to be one of them. I'm going to try to stop the B6 and B12 for a while and see if it goes away. I read somewhere once that the body elminates any extra B vitamins on it's own so you can't OD on them. Who knows?!

Re: Burning mouth, tongue, syndrome?

Hi...just went thru all the postings here and found them very interesting. I started having that burning feeling on my tongue about a year ago. Went to the doc and he thought I had an infection and gave me meds. It seemed to work during the time I was using it but soon faded and returned.

Recently it got so bad that my inner cheeks, and the inside of my bottom lip are irritated. I'm constantly "ungluing" my cheeks from my teeth. I also have extremely dry eyes and have been working with my optomologist for 2yrs on this issue.
One day he asked me if I had dry mouth???? after I told him about my last few mths he suggested I see my dentist and ask him about Sjogren's syndrome. After seeing my dentist, I am currently waiting to see an oral surgeon specializing in oral health. My dentist highly suspects that I may have it.
They did mention that menopause can irritate this syndrome. I also have Fibromyalgia which leads to alot of other issues. I'm certainly not suggesting that any of you have Sjogren's...but it's something to look into and read about. Best Health to all of you
thanks
