burning painful tongue
#1
My tongue feels like it is burning after eating and sometimes through out the day for no apparent reason. It gets very uncomfortable and makes eating a chore. I have done web searches and have come up with a fissured tongue or burning tongue syndrome. I do not believe that cpap has caused it but it may be aggravating it because of a dryer mouth. Does anyone else have or know about this?

Thanks in advance, Car54

Maybe try a moisturizing mouthwash a couple times a day.

I use Biotene to moisturize my tongue. This has been going on for over 2 months. I saw my doctor for other reasons and she did not have many suggestions. I will talk to my dentist next appointment and I may be seeing a ENT for dizziness. I will also ask him.

An ENT would be the one most likely to be able to help you. Tongue disorders fall under their specialty.

First, you really need a healthcare provider to check things out.

Second, are you eating a balanced diet? Sometimes, nutritional deficiencies may result in the symptoms you are experiencing.

I feel I eat adequately plus I take vitamin supplements.

Some of the nerves which serve the tongue pass through your ear. I had a stapedectomy a few years ago and lost the sense of taste in one half of my tongue - it came back after three months.

Your mention of dizziness could be a hint that there is a problem affecting the nerves through your ear.

I have been putting off going to the EMT. I have been extremely busy. My dizziness is a bit better but with what you say about the ear affecting the tongue makes me more motivated to make an appointment. Wow, I must be unique. I thought that maybe someone else on this forum had a similar problem.

Thanks for the input, I will post if I learn anything to pass on the knowledge.
