Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you are having of burning throat and tongue can most likely be due to a condition which is medically called as glossodynia. It is burning feeling on/of the tongue

Its exact cause is not known. Following factors may cause this:dry mouth (xerostomia),nutritional deficiencies,nerve damage to nerves that control taste and pain in the tongue,changes in hormones or the immune system,psychological conditions such as anxiety or depression,infections of the mouth, caused by bacteria or fungus (thrush).

Drinking water can provide only temporary relief.

Its treatment include : A lozenge-type form of the anticonvulsant medication clonazepam (Klonopin), Low doses of benzodiazepine, antidepressant or anticonvulsant drugs, supplements or diet changes for nutritional deficiencies,special oral rinses or mouth washes.

So my best advise for you is to please make an appointment with your doctor to have the tests & examination done so as to know the exact underlying cause of this burning sensation & then treatment will be done accordingly.

Thank you

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.
