I have BMS 3 years now. Has anyone had pain, and inflammation relief from GABA capsules, or liquid ? Vitiman B12 ?

I am writing this in hopes that all those that have BMS will find some benefit and hopefully long term relief
A few years ago I woke up with my mouth on fire, tongue swollen and a few small white sores on my gums and tongue. I thought maybe I was having a reaction to insulin, as I had spent the previous day in the ER with an IV of Insulin. I then went to he clinic and they prescribed a mouth rinse and I tried that for a few days and that didn't seem to help much. Next I decided I would try Hydrogen Peroxide and let me tell you, there is nothing I can think of that hurts more than that, if my mouth was not literally on fire before, it was now! I stood it as long as I could and after, I did feel some relief so I did it a couple more times throughout the day. Went to the pharmacy for more and there, discovered an OTC product by Orajel 2X mouth sore rinse! After a day or two, everything was back to normal! Once in a while (2-3 times a year) it will flare up again and I use the Orajel which takes it away! I hope this info. helps, take care and good luck!!! @btsum68

Does the numbing moutwash help?
Keeping my mouth really clean helps a lot. Most of the time I’ve used Biotene toothpaste but it never seems to clean very well. Lately I’ve been using a toothpaste for sensitive teeth and is is working better,
Hi. In the past year I’ve learned my burning mouth syndrome was a misdiagnosis. I have Sjogrens. Rheumatologist said autoimmune diseases run in packs. If you have one, you have another. Unfortunately treatment is expensive drugs that don’t work very well as you have experienced. I have progressed with this disease. I no longer produce tears. Eyes burn. Parotid and salivary glands palpable and visible. Sex is painful. I just wanted to throw this out there to consider. Best wishes.
For me I use that OTC Ora Jel 2 and that works well for me! Initially it took probably about a week using it 4-5 times a day after that when I could feel it coming on, I would use it a couple of times in a day then not again until I needed it! I will warn you, the first time it will make you dance a jig but if you can handle the pain for a couple of minutes, I'll be worth it! Good luck, please let me know if it helps you! @btsum68
The only OTC that helps my burning tongue is diphenhydramine/Benadryl. Just as it helps allergy suffers with burning and stinging of the nasal passages and eyes, it eases my burning/stinging tongue. It is the only OTC that helps me. It is better than any topical remedy. My burning originates deep within my tongue, making topical treatments worthless in easing my BMS symptoms. Maybe it will help you too. I tried the less sedating antihistamines, but they offered my tongue no relief. I choose feeling sleepy over my tongue burning, it is worth it for me. I do not drive, etc., when I use diphenhydramine. I was referred to a top Neurology clinic in Seattle, WA. I want to find out about oral nerve blocks as a treatment. Has anyone tried nerve blocks? When my tongue/mouth is at its worst, along with my mouth and tongue burning, my face and scalp will burn and sweat. I am so desperate, I will try anything, if it promises a chance of relief. I am so depressed. I feel so hopeless.
