Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

About 2 years ago I started w/ dry month, then about a year ago I started w/ the burning mouth & raw tongue. Over the last few months, I developed a horrible taste in my mouth, pretty much 24/7. At times it makes me nauseous, I have trouble eating everything, I don't enjoy my food anymore. In the past 2 years my teeth have deteriorated, I belch a lot, pills get stuck in my throat. I have always had trouble taking pills, but not this bad. I am accidently biting the inside of my mouth & tongue. I have seen my PCP & an ENT, both pretty much said that nothing could be done & I just need to learn to live w/ it. Any info would be greatly appreciated. This has changed my entire life, bc it is always present. … read more
