@grammlyn— I have seen the TOP specialists in NYC and Boston. Essentially there is almost nothing that can be done about burning mouth syndrome and OLP. The treatments are too extreme and hardly work anyway. Having these conditions for years, my mouth is now deformed: swollen tongue with scallop-like designs around the edges and distorted lips, with saliva leaking out on both sides. One of these docs told me anxiety and worry is a major factor, and when you stop worrying, it will go away. I don't believe that!
