Mouth sores

I was just wondering how many of y'all get sores in your mouth?

Mine are on the roof of my mouth and feel somewhat like burns, even though I haven't burned my mouth. The pain can last for days and days and makes eating very unpleasant.

Re: Mouth sores

I get mouth sores pretty frequently, mostly on my gums towards the back of my mouth, but occasionally on my tongue and cheeks too. I know what you mean, they do feel like burns. Sometimes I wonder if I burned myself without realizing, but I think its just a result of autoimmune diseases. I don't know if the sores are MS, or one of the other diseases I have, but it seems that ALL autoimmune diseases cause them. They are miserable. I've tried gargling with salt water, but I think its more of a placebo effect than actually doing something.

Smile Re: Mouth sores

Hey becca-
I get these ALL the time~!!! In fact, I have 2 on my right side that are killing me right now.... I think if your immune system is comprised your more suceptible to getting chronic mouth ulcers. I rinse with salt and water to speed up recovery, not sure how much it actually works though!! I'm not sure about the poll option, maybe one of the veterans on here knows more about this. Thats a good question. I've also noticed that I get mouth ulcers more when I brush my teeth with a regular colgate toothpaste instead of sensidyne. There is some kinda chemical in some types of colgate (im not sure what its called) that my dentist told me can cause ulcers too...

Re: Mouth sores

We talking about canker sores or something else?

I've had canker sores for YEARS. Long as I can remember. I get them if I drink orange juice or if I bite my cheek/lip they sometimes develop as a result.

If you're referring to burning mouth (literally you can't see a sore developed, yet you feel like there's something there because you get a burning sensation in 1 area) I have that right now. Today my burning mouth is worse than it had been (honestly I think I'm at the beginning of a relapse, sigh). It mostly occurs on my top right side (gums, inside of right cheek and on the right side along the tongue, but also on top of the tongue). I get a soreness on the roof of my mouth as well (depending on how bad the rest of it is), and it can appear on the bottom of my mouth/left side depending on the severity/day.

Since getting burning mouth, the most relief I felt was after my steroid course was completed.
