Burning Mouth Syndrome


Burning Mouth Syndrome

Burning mouth syndrome is a persistent, often painful sensation, or soreness. It most commonly affects your tongue, but may also affect your lips, gums, palate, throat or whole mouth. You may feel a burning or scalding sensation, taste changes in your mouth, such as a bitter or metallic taste, loss of taste, tingling, stinging or numbness in your mouth. It is important to know that burning mouth syndrome usually doesn’t cause any noticeable physical changes to your tongue or mouth. It is seen more often in peri- and post-menopausal women.
