    Any MEN have burning mouth syndrome?

    For over a year now I have had a moderate case of "burning mouth syndrome" which comes and goes throughout the day. Although the mouth and tongue look normal, it must be something to do with nerves. Doctors don't know why. It feels like a burning/scalded or numb/tingly feeling mostly in the tongue and roof of mouth. Stress, alcohol, sweets makes it worse. I hear it usually affects menopausal women, but I am a healthy male in early thirties. I also have mild GERD (taking prilosec) which may contribute, but I don't notice acid in my mouth. Any other MEN have BMS? And more importantly, any known remedies??

    Thanks,
    Dan

    As long as your not anemic this could be just a case of sensitivity to sodium lauryl sulfates used in toothpaste. You can now buy many brands without these as many people have found to have the same problem. I would also suggest if you have not done so already change to an alchol free mouthwash. If your mouth is very sore at present try Gengigel gel or mouth rinse. I use both which relieves my problem greatly.
