Three times in the last year my entire mouth has been completely overcome with canker sores, my entire mouth, checks, top, bottom, lips, and even my tongue. I have gone to seven different doctors and each had a different idea. Some of the reasons I was told was mono, hand foot and mouth disease, allergies, herpes, stress... I did my own research as well and decided to become gluten free and still had an outbreak after. I've tried supplements, changing my toothpaste to fluoride and sodium laurel sulfate free toothpaste, I eat very healthy, I don't feel more stressed, I don't know what else to do. During my last outbreak my family took me to the ER where I was given IV fluid because it was too painful for me to even drink water, I lost 17lbs in 10 days. This is seriously the worst thing that has ever happened to me. Any ideas? Please help!
I wanted to add a few things. I had blood work done and pretty much everything was normal except I had low DHEA. I have a very extensive family history of Hashimotos disease and RA, could this be some sort of autoimmune condition perhaps?
