Re: burning tongue
Do your gums and tongue feel as though they are burning, but when you touch them they do not hurt? I have burning mouth syndrom. I am post medapausal..by about 10 years. Actually, I never felt the affects of it, as i has a hystreactomy (so) when I was mid 50s. My BMS started with a burning feeling where the gum meets a tooth. In the past two years, it has spread and gotten worse. My entire mouth in affected. Chewing gum has been my best relief. I'm sure you have read all the remedies and aides...I've tried most of them. The only foods I have given up are tomato based and acidic. They say to give up caffine, but I can't go that far. If you have true BMS, save yourself a lot of grief and expense...forget the doctors and prescription drugs. I haven't found a doctor who knows anything about BMS. Try the lists of home remedies and find one that works for you. Good luck. Hopefully this is just a passing phase.
