Burning Mouth Syndrome

Posted by @phyllisrn in Just Want to Talk, Mar 5, 2012

I have had the Burning Mouth Syndrome for 17 years. I have seen many Drs. So everybody don't waste your money on them or your time. There is not a cure, so for anyone who says they have a cure, stay away from them. But there are various things that can make it better. The things that I read and hear, have placed this syndrome under the dentistry vocation to treat. Again, this is wrong. It belongs in my opinion with neurologist.

I have had this for 6 years and have tried EVERYTHING. Now I carry ziplock bags wherever I go and snack on chopped radishes and lettuce. Also green onion and celery. Got tired of carrying mouthwash all the time and this way I can just chew it and don't have to use loo. Diluted oregano oil and tea tree oil give some relief too.

I use many kinds of mouthwash,keep changing. Biotene has one that is kind of milky with a calcium base. The vegetables I thought of on my own. Slippery elm lozenges last the longest,also licorice lozenges (DGL) are good. The burning never goes way. It is 24/7 since last spring. Also plain yogurt is good. To carry around some grocery stores have yogurt in tubes for kids lunches,very handy. Hope this helps.

An oral dermatologist treats burning mouth syndrome. They are rare though. I saw one at Mayo Clinic and then they referred me to one in my area in Michigan that trained at Mayo.

I too just woke up with this condition. I took all the tests…cat scan, blood work…and tried all the homeo remedies. Then my neurologist prescribed Lyrica and I have been (almost) pain free since the second day. It is expensive. About $1 per day. But you can order larger dose SL tablets from Canada and split them. I just thank God I found the cure because I was ready to commit suicide if the condition turned out to be permanent. Hope this helps.
