: : David, remember me? Could you please advise on this one (see message under "Aches in Mouth")
: Hey Katherine or Katharine-
: Couldn't help noticing that you're spelling your name differently
: nowadays. Anyway, I see that you're still having some problems
: with your mouth.
: The burning aches are most likely the effects of clenching. Are you
: wearing the splint 24-7? The upper tooth that is more sensitive, have
: the splint adjusted to reduce pressure on that tooth.
: The burning sensation may indicate clenching problems, or dietary
: problems, or stress. Also check the fit of the splint, it may be touching
: the tissue, or if you are prone to water weight gain, the roof of the
: mouth might swell at times, and put pressure on the splint, and hurt. Are
: you putting on weight? If so, the splint might not fit as well.
: A burning sensation of the lips could be an allergic reaction, but it has
: been going on for some time, so look to a dietary deficiency, maybe
: Vitamin C or B.
: But, of course, as I said before, Western Medicine probably cannot
: solve your problem. You have too much stress in your life, and its
: got a tight hold on you. Only you can solve your problems. You
: might consider acupuncture treatment for stress, and the problems
: outlined in your note.
: Good Luck-
