It all started about 6 months ago when I woke up and the insides of my cheeks were swollen. Every time I bit down in an attempt to eat my back teeth made contact with the inside of my cheeks. Over the next week my tongue started burning, my lips burn non-stop and the roof of mouth is raw & I developed a metallic taste in my mouth. Let me throw in here I also suffer from severe dry mouth. That started about 5 years ago when I hit menopause (if a link I don't know).
I went to my dentist here in Boise, ID but he literally blew me off (time to find a new dentist!). I have been to my regular doctor a few times over this. He took me off of Topamax which I take for my migraines as a possible cause. Burning continued. He also prescribed an Rx for something to stimulate the saliva in my mouth. I now have some saliva relief but the burning tongue, lips, mouth, sore inner cheeks continue.
After 6 months of this I am not sure what to do next. I am leaving on a 2 week vacation soon and I can't even get excited about that as I know I am going to be miserable the entire time. Anyone out there have advice, suggestions, ? I would appreciate any input you might have to offer.
