This is the exact question I was going to ask. I was diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia five years ago. A year ago I began having painful lips, only on the inside, sometimes all the way around but mostly in one spot inside the upper lip. I experience a metallic taste/feeling inside my mouth. I am so tired of this pain, it makes caring for my teeth nearly impossible. I wondered if there might be a connection but my doctor had never heard of BMS.
Hi Bonniewolf. I have Trigeminal Neuralgia but I have not had any problems since starting Tegretol. I have taken Lyrica and I’m still taking Cymbalta but slowly tapering off that now too. The reason I mention these medications is because I’ve talked to many people who have taken them and they are experiencing BMS. Another medication that can cause it is Gabapentin. I’m just wondering if you’re taking any of these medications and maybe that’s why you have it. There are groups for people who take these types of medications and many people talk about BMS and the connection. Take care and I wish you the best. Cindy
