I know I did comment about this on another thread but thought I would put the question out there and that is - does anyone have or have had in the past a constant "burnt tongue" feeling?

The feeling never goes away. I dont think its from drinking coffee ( but I cant explain why I feel its not associated with that)

Do you eat a lot of pineapple?

Has anyone ever said you are deficient in something or do you eat a lot of one thing in particular?

my sis had her wisdom pulled.. ever since she has burning T.. .. sorry... for both of you.


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

from the Mayo Clinic on burning tongue.  

http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/burning-mouth-syndrome/DS00462/DSECTION=causes

This was my primary symptom the first time I ever went to see Dr. D in the late 1980s. I was 47
and just beginning to go through menopause so possibly there was a hormonal connection.
By changing my diet and giving up a lot of foods that might have contributed to gastric problems, my burning tongue slowly went away but has come back many times over the years.  For me personally, I think it was a nutritional deficiency... perhaps a B vitamin and specifically B12.  The reason I'm making this association was because I was given B12 shots for a few weeks in a row in Dr.  D's office, and my symptom slowly went away for quite awhile.

http://www.healthcentral.com/diet-exercise/h/sore-tongue-and-vitamin-deficiency.html

A remote thought was that for me, this could have been a gluten issue too...gastric reflux or something to do with an acidic body.  It's only been 9 years since I'm totally off gluten...Prior to that, although I ate some gluten grains,sprouted wheat, rye and eventually after I had taken
an antibiotic for Lyme disease, the gluten I kept ingesting, eventually led to full blown celiac.  So this is why I think for me, a burning tongue had something to do with gut issues and not being
able to properly absorb nutrients.  I might have been borderline deficient in B12 for most of
my life and something pushed me over the cliff.

I know when you've had any dental procedure and were given "gas"
(nitrous oxide) as anesthesia (which I HAD prior to my symptom of a burning tongue) that this drains B12 out of your body.  A B12 deficiency can disrupt nerves.....might really be the cause
of a burning tongue.  http://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(05)75143-6/fulltext

Just some thoughts about my experience to help you sort this out.  It's very frustrating, I know.  I hope you find a solution that helps you.

Thank you so much for your in depth reply.

I went on to the Mayo clinic site and instantly found a number of reasons as to why I have this problem.

1. - Having to take regular medication. - In 1997 whilst at work I suffered an AVM (Arterial Venus Malformation) which is similar to a brain haemorrhage. Very sick for a very long time - had to go to rehab to learn how to speak properly again - but the end results - and as with a large number of brain trauma patients - I began having grand mal seizures and petit mal seizures and so have to take anti seizure medication.  The best one for me, in that I do not get any seizures at all on this medication - is Tegretol- however side effects include dry mouth (major bummer!)

2. - Reflux or Stomach Acid - This is where I felt I might be going wrong.  After first reading about LR4YT I started drinking "bubbly" mineral water rather than normal water (approx. 2 litres a day). LR4YT says that it should be Seltzer water but I figured they were so close and mineral water doesn't have any taste.  As it is a "soda" type drink I would burp after every drink - which  I now figure can't be all that good for your health when you drink 2 litres of the stuff every day!!!

Whilst my children are still young I am not in a position to be weaned off Tegretol - I wouldn't be able to drive for a period of at least 6 weeks and that's not feasible when I don't have any family to help out.

So first plan of attack is to stop drinking mineral water and I will now focus on water with lemon juice instead.

lack of B12


Thanks for the help.

I looked this up and found once again a number of symptoms similar to mine along with a few of the possible causes.

As my diet has been absolutely atrocious over the past year or so I feel that getting some B12 into me is an easy way to try and find a "cure" so I will be getting some B12 in the tablet form tomorrow.

Thanks
