I wold just as soon not take anything. The most disturbing thing is the terrible numbness in my mouth and the majority of my tongue. i have lost much of my taste senses along with the numbing in the roof of my mouth; needless to say, I have burned the roof of my mouth numerous times while eating as I could not tell how hot some food was.

Hi @kraison1979, awful to deal with in your mouth. My heart goes out to you. You have to remember your brain does not get the proper signals to deal with the temperature changes in your mouth so be extra careful with burns. Without thinking, I used my left hand predominately and suffered both cold and hot burns. Since then I have been more cautious and have not gotten burns again. @kraison1979 perhaps going to an ENT(ear, nose, throat) doctor may further help. Some specialize in throat. See what is available in your area.
