    Re: Burning tongue syndrome

    I've had burning tongue syndrome for eight years. It was a horrid experience. No dentist, gastroenterologist, physician or specialist could help. I read on this thread two weeks about the use of large doses of Alpha Lipoic Acid.

    I had been taking small amounts of Alpha Lipoic Acid for five years or so, because I read on the Berkeley Wellness newsletter that it was a powerful anti-oxidant, the only anti-oxidant which works on lipid cells, such as the cells in the eye. I had been having trouble with what seemed like the early onset of cataracts. After a few months my night vision completely cleared.

    So I was intrigued to read about the use of the product, available at any pharmacy or Walmart store inexpensively. I increased my dosage from two tablets a day to eight tablets in hopes it would somehow help the burning tongue...and it certainly did! The week prior to starting on this regimen my tongue felt as if it had been sliced with a razor and eating food was most uncomfortable. My symptoms are COMPLETELY GONE after EIGHT YEARS. Now that it is under control I will back down from eight tabs a day to three or four in hopes for a long term cure. Check out the Berkeley Wellness Newsletter for further information. It's free, and there's no registration required. I hope this helps others with burning tongue. I AM NORMAL AGAIN!!!

    buy some zinc tablets from the health shop, take for a few days, the burning tongue will go away.

    It is treatable. See your doctor.
    B-12 (shots in some cases) , Iron, Zinc and in some cases calcium supplements are used to treat it.
    Yeah, my poor daughter in law has it. She can't really enjoy anything but bland food.

    Hi Anne, and welcome to Forum Garden!

    Just a quick FYI, you can look at the time/date stamp in the left corner of
    the green bar on posts, it will tell you if the post/thread is current or
    not. This thread was started in 2008, so I doubt the OP will see your
    sage advice!

    Poke around a little, I'm sure you'll find much more of interest and
    can get in on some topics!

    Get some zinc tables from the health shop, that will get rid of it, take when required and it will keep it at bay. I use it all the time. it is connected to the menopause

    Re: Burning tongue syndrome

    For me it started suddenly six months after my dentist had recommended switching to Sensodyne, which does contain SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulphate). Switching back to my long-time favorite herbal Thera-Neem toothpaste (no SLS) solved the problem within a few days.

    Of course I can't be sure if it was SLS or another ingredient in Sensodyne, but I am definitely not going to try another toothpaste for a while now!
