Had major dental work (veneers) done 12 weeks ago. Ten weeks ago, after returning to dentist to have excess cement removed between teeth involved, I developed tongue pain. At first it moved around. I kept a journal, relating where pain was and intensity...the dentist said I was just having to adjust to all the "new stuff" in my mouth, give it time and I was making my tongue sore running it around over all the "new stuff". Well, it continued, past the point that even the dentist thought that simply "tincture of time" would cure it. He smoothed off rough edges 3 times on various teeth, made several different mouth guards to be worn at night, but I finally went to an ENT, who treated me for fungal infection in my mouth, though he said he wasn't sure that would help. Admitted I "might" have burning tongue syndrome. My question is this, the pain and soreness on my tongue still moves around at times, but is mainly localized to the tip of my tongue and the right side. Pain does go away while I sleep, it returns early morning and worsens as the day goes on and by evening the soft palate is sore and the pain is worse, but talking is absolutely excruciatingly painful. I haven't seen that in any of the information about burning mouth syndrome...have you heard of that? Has anyone experienced it?
I come home from work, lock my doors and cringe if the phone rings...this has altered my entire life. Please help...information from anyone. THX
