... time. Don't know what to do for that. What is the best gum to chew?
To Marja Wren - chewing gum definitely helps me. Make sure it's sugarless. Personally I chew Extra Dessert Delights but I'm sure any flavor of sugarless will help. I pray you find help because after 3 years of this condition nothing has given me complete relief. Benzo drugs help and I take a hydrocodone near bedtime. Good luck and let me know how you are doing!
Biotine products are the best brand in the market for burning mouth. They have toothpaste, gum,mouth spray, mouth wash, gel, etc. I found out about it years ago when my mother had cancer, and they radiated her throat. She couldn't barely talk or eat, but the biotene helped alot.
I am being treated for severe REFLUX!! I have been taking reflux med since 1989. I went to an allergist 2 weeks ago, and he very directly told me that the burning is caused by stomach acid going up into the mouth, burning the gums, lips, nasal cavity. His name is Dr. Henry Kanarek in Overland Park Kansas. Over these two weeks, I am getting better. The last two days has been almost normal!! I still have to watch what I eat, but I am taking Omeprazole 40 mg 2 x daily, CVS nasal mist for extra moisture am and pm. Restasis for dry eyes am and pm, Evoxac 30 mg (for dry mouth due to meds) 2 x daily. My GI doc 2 years ago wasn't aware that acid could do this to your mouth. This is the real deal. Find a doc that will try to help you NOW.
I've been taking Alpha Lopic Acid (I started with 600 mg and am now taking 2400 mg in morning and 2400 mg at night) and it has gotten the burning and swelling of BMS under control. I started this regiment three years ago and the best acting ALA is time released. ALA effectiveness and BMS is well researched by the medical dermatology community. Good luck
