... the dentist punctured my maxillary sinus, exposed the bone and I fought a two month infection with many antibiotics and steroids. All of a sudden after infection healed, my tongue and roof of mouth burn so badly I am currenly on pain pills short term with the most devastating pain I have ever had. I can't even stand to get out of bed except to eat (cold) food. Anyone have any tried and true cures? Obviously I can't stay on vicodin. Thank you
