Hi. So I read your discussion. I've tried everything you have mentioned so far. You might want to try calcium channel blockers. Also, you might want to try hypnotism. Regards stu
@meadowhouse It has been suggested: go to "pubmed" a government website, enter "burning mouth syndrome." There are found 100s of scientific papers, written by doctors who have treated BMS. I was directed there to find some successful treatments. But it is a big job to read so many long papers. Has anyone tried this?
@ristu Thanks for your suggestions. Have you tried Calcium channel blockers and did it help. I am not familiar with this?
@ristu calcium channel blocker is a heart or BP med, I think.
Hi. Yes it was suggested to try calcium channel blockers. However, I do believe they are for heart issues. Regards Stu
Has anyone noticed that the burning mouth syndrome gets worse with cold weather versus warmer weather? Just today, after having a cold snap for a few days my burning mouth syndrome came back with a vengeance. Stu.
@ristu Never noticed that burning moth syndrome is worse in the cold weather. It is worse in the morning. If anyone wants to do the work, the NIH has a collection of dozens of scientific articles on BMS, It was recommended to me to read them and find a doc who treats it successfully. I have not done that yet.
OK then….Thanks !
I have suffered from this condition for 9 years. I take 0.5 mg of Xanax, which help some. It also causes dry mouth and sometimes trouble speaking. I researched about it when I first got it. I can never find good information and I wondered if anyone has any recent information that might help. I wanted to get in a study but apparently not enough people have it to warrant a study. Please help if you can!
