Hello Twentyfour7, I can relate very well to what you posted. How do you take the lidocaine? Is it pill or capsule? Or perhaps a mouthwash?

Hello, @lauren123 – the lidocaine is in a gel form. You swish with it, or swab it in your mouth. Because it is a prescription, it’s more potent than your basic OraGel. The numbing effect calms the fire and lasts a few hours . Although I’m very sorry to hear you can identify with me, it is certainly helpful to talk with others who grapple with this poorly understood syndrome. Perhaps collectively we can work out the puzzle. I hope you find some relief— my ENT was the one who prescribed the gel.

Hello Twentyfour7, thanks for responding so promptly. Do your gums burn on a daily basis? I have been on this site since 2012 and the best way to get to know me is to follow my story. My pain worsens when I have sinus flare-ups. I also have Trigeminal Neuralgia and TMJ. This is a good site for people like us. I think people are helpful and sincere. Besides, our conversations are private.
