Hi meg

In short... Yes.

I had a couple and saw my doctor who told me because I get stressed out it can wear you down. Plenty of rest and listen to your body. Having said all that if you are concerned, pop along to your gp for piece of mind:) Hugs x

Hi meg

Like Yummi when I get run down I can get little mouth ulcers in fact it was just a couple of weeks ago when I was coming down with that sinus infection that I had a couple of them but they have gone now I am feeling better

Sometimes medication can cause a funny taste or even when your stomach feels a bit upset you can get a taste in your mouth , I am not sure if the new medication you are taking could cause either of these problems & I wouldn't read the side effects as that may make you worse

This should settle down but if it doesn't you could ask you GP but I am sure it will be nothing serious

Love

I get mouth ulcers when I'm stressed and run down too. Got some ointment from pharmacy recently which helped.

To be honest I'm not sure. It could be a dental problem. You can

Get a great gel in the chemist for mouth ulcers. Are you eating a good

Diet. . . .? I used to get a lot of them and I think they were caused by stress.

They are painful for sure but the chemist is the best bet.

Hi Meg.

Maybe make an effort to eat a wee bit better . Plenty of fruit . I live alone

Too so I know what you mean. Take care and even get a good Multivitamin

Tablet from Chemist. I take one every day.

Hi

I had a similar thing was told by my GP that there is such a thing as stress related ulcers.He gave me some antibiotic cream and they went in a few days.It is though, quite common according to my doctor.I think mine happened because I used to bite the inside of my mouth during sleep when I was feeling anxious at bedtime or if I had a bad day.Hope this will give you a little reassurance.
