Hi there. I keep being told I have burning mouth syndrome and I'm trying hard to believe it. However, there is one spot in my mouth where the pain seems to radiate from, plus the pain is localised to the left side of my palate/gums. Is this normal, or should I be looking for other answers?. I have seen two oral surgeons and two dentists and all say my mouth looks completely normal, however, I haven't had the bad spot biopsied, and am wondering whether it's worth doing this. Any help would be appreciated. The pain and horrible taste has had me on my knees for the past few days
i had pain in that same place. it was only the gum that was inflamed. not the tooth. dentist said it was either an auto immune reaction just on that spot. i cant remember the name... or a fungal infection. he gave me nystatin. it was fungal cause it cured it. the smell you mentioned makes me think fungal. or bacteria.
Hi, I don't exactly understand exactly where your localized pain is. Would you say that it's clearly the gums or could it be the teeth? I had terrible pain in a number of teeth and had an MD dentist do a full head x-ray and test the teeth with ice, etc. He said that it couldn't be a dental problem. It only turned out over a year later that my neurologist ordered a CT scan on full jaw and discovered that the pain was originating from one tooth which had a bad abscess. You need a special x-ray on the specific tooth to detect an abscess. With so many teeth involved it was extremely difficult to diagnose.
