... I live in New Mexico (not Mexico) and have been using Medical Cannabis since June and now find it is no longer a problem
Hi. What you say is interesting. I live in the UK and this has never been mentioned by anyone, doctors or any mention within this group for BMS sufferers. Why and how was you prescribed this. I dont really think we could even get it prescribed here. At the moment I have taken my amitriptyline every day but recently I have been having times of hot chilli pepper sensations and feelings in my tongue, mouth and lips going into my throat and it is really getting me down. My BMS has definately interfered with my taste buds which has quite deteriorated. Has anyone else out there heard of this remedy or anything else that may help with BMS because it does not seem to be getting any better in fact the hot chilli burning is getting worse. Any help or further advice would be greatly appreciated by many of us. Medical or otherwise. Since joining this group quite a while ago not a lot of info has come thru. Thanks and happy new year, hopefully, to all BMS sufferers. Maybe there is an answer out there somewhere, sooner rather than later.
Nope. BMS and I have been aquainted since late 2009 and after many doctor, an Allergist and GP and Dentist and Oral surgeons and biopsies and no definitive anwer, my 2010 internet search came up with "Dermatolgy Whiz" Dr. R. Rogers. After many, many valid tests, discovered that Alpha Lipoic Acid was an answer to the symptoms of BMS; for me-- mouth inflamtion,secretion causing deep tongue ulcers (could have become cancerous), headaches with a tempature and lost voice. THANK YOU DR. ROGERS!!! My daily dose:1200 mg morning--1200 mg evening. Best buy so far,(not an advert) is Swanson 600 mg. Now, my symptoms are under control and I can tell if the ALA quality is good by how many 600 mg caps I have to take. After two years I have taken many different brands--most work to some/same degree as any other--even Swanson veries in qualitiy from time to time. Any Brand "R factor" ALA is claimed to be the best quality.
Also I am drinking 2 cups of Oolong tea a day. This seems to coat the BMS area in the front of my mouth. And it seems to help control dermatitis on my hands. Just started this regiment so jury still out.
I hope your head is clear enough to check your reponses. Did I offfend?
Weed should be reserved for the very sick and dying of us who can't stand the extreme pain associated with either. I never considered it an option, as I need to live and make a living. Don't despair, this is a better answer. Dr. Rogers has said the dose is specific to the individual and appearently there are no bad side effects noted in humans(my urine has a matallic smell). So take as much as you need of ALA (start low, at least 600 mg per day). So long and good luck.
