This sounds somewhat like Burning Mouth syndrome. I would check out the Mayo clinic site. I have BMS and TMD/TMJ so they like to “play off each other.” (direct quote from my Pain Med. doctor.)

I have also been diagnosed with tmj and had custom splints made that I was suppose to wear 24/7. However, it gave me burning mouth syndrome. I think anxiety is also triggering burning mouth now. I do wear the splint at night but can not wear during the day. I had an MRI and they say my right side is truly degenerative from arthritis. On a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the worst, I am almost at a 5. Other side seems to be okay. However I have had head pressure for 4 months and nobody seems to know the cause. Has anyone else experienced this. I am 72 and the oral surgeon kept saying that the surgery would be risky and didn't seem to want to do it. However, I can't live like this. Any help?
