Quoted from PCUK-PositiveDo 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?
Quoted from Chloefrom the Mayo Clinic on burning tongue.
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.
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.
