Hello Everyone, About a week or little more Lilbit's mouth has been burning and sore. She uses upper dentures but is trying to eat soft foods to give her mouth a chance to heal hopefully. From what I'm reading on here, many have had a burning mouth for over 18 yrs.
Now her mouth seems to be constantly hurting and many times like it's on fire. Since about 1:30 AM she could not lay down long without screaming in pain. Her head has also starting to feel like it's on fire to where she grabs her forehead and yells in pain. It's 8:48 PM CDT and she is in route to the hospital by ambulance. I'll be spending the night at the hospital as I usually do when she is in the "Big House."
Any insight to what may be causing this would be greatly appreciated. Is there anything in particular I should ask the Drs to check on?
This gives me a another chance to educate the medical staff of support groups such as Inspire and Mayo Clinic partnership in regards to "Experts by Experience," Inspire's ability to post in multiple groups, and the great hospital site Mayo Clinic Connect.
Taking advantage of the opportunity with being around other patients and nurses to share knowledge as well as support groups encourages me more.
