I am a 55 year old woman who has had this for 13 years. It is devastating and has completely changed my life…I belong to a group of woman on line who have this and we are trying to figure out how to treat this. I have decided to go to a holistic dr to get bioidentical hormones. I think it’s either that or from GERD, something going on in our digestive track. will be gettng my kit for hormonal testing…will post my results.
I’m 45 and have had this for almost 4 months. My mouth hurts so bad I can hardly smile. I feel like it doesn’t stop hurting at all!! I wake up hurting worse everyday. My doctor is baffled. I am getting so depressed. I am newly married and can’t even kiss my husband. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I am on gabapentin 300mg 3 times a day. I usually have about 5 good days then a couple of not so good days. The bad days aren’t as bad as they used to be. My lips aren’t as swollen or as purple as they were in the beginning. I sure hope your Mother starts feeling better. Good Luck… LaDawn
I am 53 and I have had burning mouth for about a year now. I have been to dentists, pychiatrist, family doctor and everyone of the docs tell me to see another doc it is so frustrating … I am bipolar and take meds for it but this is a very depressing ailment in itself. All the docs look at you and don’t know what you are talking about, so I do my own researching all the time and I found this site….if anyone has found something that helps PLEASE let me know.
I too have burning mouth for about 1 year. Was finally sent to a dermatologist. She prescribed klonipin as needed and it worked the first pill i took. She is doing lots of blood work to check for vitamin levels. May also do allergy test to see if im allergic to fhe compounds in my gold crows and metal fillings. This is a Mayo clinic recommended treatment.
I have had BMS for 8 years after a tonsillectomy and have gone in circles with no relief and most doctors are clueless! 🙁
It’s awful I know 🙁
Its awful I’ve been suffering for 8 years 🙁
I forgot to tell you I have already tried a holistic approach. I was told to soak in hot tub with 1 cup bleach.Didn’t help/ I tried bio identical hormones,nope, its not gerd I stopped eating for 4 months just liquids. Please believe me you are wasting your time. I even talked with someone on the internet that said she had all her teeth pulled, and it didn’t help. I believed it is caused by damage to one of the cranial nerves that is responsible for taste.All of you will be in my prayers
