have and it came back that I am "off the chart" allergic to milk and ALL milk products--butter, cheese, casein, etc. None of my medical docs offered to do this! I have been seeing a board certified nutritionist and we did the blood tests and stool testing. I also have what is called "Leaky Gut". My intestines do not have the "good bacteria" that processes my food and toxins secrete into my blood stream causing reactions. It is April 22, 2011 and I just found this out. But we are hopefull that this is what is causing my burning mouth! Bring up the web site RxAlternativeMedicine.com and read about Dr. James Smith. Friends--this is huge. He can perhaps help you find someone in your area that will do these tests for you. I will keep you all posted as to how my health improves. I anticipate that it will take some time for my body to get rid of all of the toxins. Keep me in your prayers that this is the information we ALL need!!!

I have the food allergies you speak of especially milk proteins, & corn! Meaning corn syrup, corn flour, corn gluten, corn starch, etc... meaning about all processed foods. It's either corn or whey . Have had allergies all my life, but never knew about the food until I got tested at age of 50. I still sneak an ice cream cone once ina awhile. Hey a girls got to have her ice cream once in awhile! I get ya. Good luck & check at your delis, they will check their ingredients list for you...

I am a 64 year old male and have had this "thing" for almost three years. Doctors here have never heard of it! My pain is off the chart right now. It never quits. I can't taste my food. I've had every blood test known to man. I have no visual signs of anything in my mouth. Believe me, I can sympathize with everyone out there. I haven't been tested for allergies, but I may after reading this post. Thanks for your input. Anyone who can find a cure for this, I would be eternally grateful. Thanks
