I think it would be a good idea if we shared what medications we take, as I have already viewed one that read she takes Trazadone and so do I. Has anyone read the side effects of Trazadone? I read that burning of the mouth was a side effect, my Internist told me it probably wasn't. You would think why would would I still take it? I would never sleep without it.
What I have seen in my research is being peri menopausal or post menopausal woman is required. Some sites say age 50, others say 60. Having diabetes or GERD are likely in women with BMS. Women are more likely to develop BMS. Haven't heard anything about HRT being involved.
I never used HRT, but I'm 74, with full blown BMS. Though I suspect I've might have mild form of it since my late 50's or early 60's, but thought it was related to my dental health. Been told it could disappear tomorrow (Ha!) or last for years. No known cure at this time. Hope researchers are working on it. So at this time, it's all on the sufferers to create treatment plans. I was just diagnosed just last Sunday. Hope you're feeling okay.
I had a dental bridge and my mouth has not been right since, first was told Dry Mouth Syndrome took all sorts of stuff made it worse, had blood tests tried different toothpastes, then saw an Oral consultant in hospital he said classic symptoms of Burnt Mouth Syndrome, he referred me to Dental Hospital Liverpool they examined me, blood tests, took notes from me, I was diagnosed with Oral Dyseasthesia which is BMS. They said no cure as Nerve Damage, and advised me to see GP to try low dose of anti depressant I don’t think this is the way forward !
In their letter to me it says my Oral Dyseasthesia was initiated by the placement of a dental bridge. I am still trying to combat this daily nightmare writing to people for advice but nobody seems to know. I have permanent numb lips , my palate is awful and mouth too, and tongue is dry, lately it feels like I’ve got lots of salt in my saliva, I would not wish this on anyone. I’ve also put in a complaint to my dentist !
No. My BMS stems from Sjogrens Syndrome. The best thing I have found to keep it under control is a strict diet eliminating all simple sugars and limiting carbs. My mouth does not get as dry and relieves burning quite a bit. The problem is you have to be diligent. However, after having relief I don't really want to eat the wrong things as the pain makes it really
not worth it
I had tried so many things over the last 3 yrs. and no results. I have gone to Drs. At USC and UCLA—and dentists. There is no cure and because it is rare there is not, if any research! I cannot take the prescription drugs as I have terrible side effects—-like sleeping all the time And alwAys dizzy! Just cannot function. They call it a Cronin disease. I have tried ever over counter mouth wash and toothpaste. I coat my mouth with olive oil at night. Only relief is gum and lozenges . Always have them in my mouth. I am thinking about acupuncture in my mouth but what I have read it hasn’t work for anyone? You have to have at least six treatments over a period of 6 weeks. It would be very difficult to do this as I live 6 hrs away from UCLA but I am willing to try. Has anyone had good results??? It drives a person to the brink—-I am 75 year old woman and have had no dental work or hormone therapy.
Just woke up one morning to that horrible taste in my mouth! My saliva is thick and food sticks to my teeth. Need to brush them after eating anything. Always picking my teeth. Help—cw
I've been taking trazodone for 8 years now, and never had this problem for sleep have you tried seroquel?
I haven't taken any hormone therapy in over 10 years and I have BMS. Mine came on after dental work was done.
