It flares on and off and I have been treated with anti-fungal,bactrium,VitA/D,Hydrocortisone and just about anything else that you can put on your lips and mouth. I do smoke maybe 10-15 cigs some days. I take vits and antioxidents vits and herbals and I have a health diet and recently had started walking after 2 major surgeries, cervical fusion and a R total knee replacement,both have healed very well. I'm 53 and peri-menpausal. I have worked as a nurse and been in Healthcare for the last 30 yrs. I'm sober and have postive family and friends in my life. I thought it might be stress related because of life changing events the last 3 yrs. I have deep sprirtutal roots and I have been to numberous MD's and NP who haven't been able to cure or offer any other dx. What to do and find a cure? I'm otherwise in good health and look younger than my stated age. Thanks, In Minneapolis,MN.
I saw a segment on Dr Oz where he talked about the burning tongue syndrome. Perhaps if you check his website there may be some follow up for you.
You should consider some of the herbs you are taking. This may also be an allergic response or irritant for you. Perhaps you started a new herb when this also started?
And yes it is time to get rid of the cigs. There is plenty of support for you when you are ready to take the challenge. I recall that cigs were part of the problem, but it also might have been the category of symptoms he was working with. Not being mean about smoking, but a burning tongue sounds pretty tough to deal with and you will have to be a detective for results. So get rid of as many things you can for a while and then reintroduce them once you are hopefully feeling improved.
Meantime, have you been to a good ENT? Minneapolis should have some good teaching hospitals. Or will you have to go to St Paul? Lol.
