Burning Mouth Syndrome (BMS): Anyone found any relief?

I’m on my 12th year. Got it under control with Xanax . Went many years with very little pain so decided to wean myself off. Got myself down to 1/4 mg. With no side effects and very little pain. Then stopped altogether for two weeks and it came back. Xanax was the only thing that worked . Back on it. For the duration. Being a controlled drug it’s hard to get doctors to prescribe. I tried everything, only Xanax worked. Miserable dam condition!

I was just diagnosed today after 2 weeks of constant burning sensations in my throat and tongue, inflamed pappilae and swollen lips. I tried every single thing out there for it. A few days ago I was so worked up over it, I took a Xanax. It relieved the pain for about 4 hours longer than the viscous lidocaine. I've read clonazepam is a go to treatment as well. I've included photos and the last one is after I took the xanax
