I had root canal, infected, extracted, 6 months ago, and the ENT said i have BMS. WHAT helps this? I have a constant sucking sensation in my mouth, gets worse as the day goes on. it feels like cartledge/bone is moving around in my gums, going down my throat. my inside of my mouth is raw from the sucking i do because my teeth feel hollow and hurt all the time. HELP? what relieves this? he gave prescrip for some type of mouthwash..a mix..and it did not help at all. i went to natural groceries and got mouthwash, natural toothpaste..does not help. I really need advice! it is constant pain in my mouth. gets worse as day goes on, and i don't know what to do. dentist and oral surgeon say "everything looks fine". ENT took MRI and saw no infection. HELP!!
Have you joined the Burning mouth syndrome support group on this site? There are others out there with the same issue as you.
If a cause can't be found, treatment can be challenging. There's no known cure for primary burning mouth syndrome. You may need to try several treatment methods before finding one or a combination that is helpful in reducing your mouth pain. You will need to work closely with your health care provider.
Hi. My BMS started Feb.2011 and it was powerful, at times I had to stuff my mouth with a flannel. It was not until Oct.2011 I was first given the drug Amitriptyline 10mg. it takes a wee while to get into your system but it definately does help, it is not a cure. I started with two tablets, I now take four, two in the morning and two in the evening, but you may wish to take them at different times suitable to yourself. It is not the answer and I am still seaching but it does help. I dont know how I would get by without this. Although at the moment it seems to be creeping back more. A spray which helps me more than any others is Expert Dental Dry Mouth Spray Boots own make. It really is effective and I carry it with me all the time. BMS is a ? I hope an answer can be found. I hope this is helpful to you and any others who may be out there in a similar situation.
Ok, after two years of BMS which has become increasingly worse, I
have in the past month started taking magnesium at night - two tabs high strength - and in the past week, swishing organic olive leaf extract in my mouth for 45 seconds after breakfast and after dinner. Improvement in the past two days would be 80 per cent - it feels less inflamed, definitely less 'hot', and now just a bit of a numb tongue. Will see if it continues!
