I liked your post. So all respond. That is a good idea, but I've never attempted to talk to a neurologist. I've had burning mouth syndrome almost four years now. Also, another idea is to be hypnotized. Another idea is to try amitriptyline. It's an old day antidepressant drug.
The thought is the drug will shut off the neuron transmitter from the throat to the brain and stop the discomfort in the throat. It is taken in a very low dose with virtually no side effects.
