Re: Burning Tongue
Gee, I never question that. I have TMJ, and last October I develope Burning in my mouth, tongue, throat, with swelling etc., just like you. It didn't even cross my mind that they might be connected. I resolved the burning with getting rid of all chemicals in my diet and dental products that I could, thinking it was an allergic reaction of some sort. (Sodium laurel sulfate) in toothpast & mouthwashes were what I was thinking caused my burning, since I am allergic to sulfites.
I'll pass this advice from my dentist along. he said to gargle with kaopectate (do not swallow it). I did it in the am and pm (just before bedtime). Seemed to help some.I've read that the burning can be caused by an irritated nerve, too, so that may go along with the TMJ. I've yet to find a specialist for the TMJ.
