Stinging/burning mouth - April 16th 2010, 04:26 PM

Recently I've found that after eating some foods, I get this really uncomfortable stinging sensation at the back of my mouth, my throat and my tongue. It's not serious and doesn't stop me from breathing, but it's very unpleasant. It's like having pins and needles on my tongue and it's really painful. I have no idea what's causing it. I'm making a list of what foods might cause it - I've had it really bad after eating pecan pie and gingerbread, and not quite so bad after a bagel. I don't see any patterns, though. When I have a better idea of what it might be I'll ask a doctor about it, but I want to narrow it down first. Could it be a mild allergic reaction to something like nuts? Or does it sound like a physical reaction to stress, e.g. burning mouth syndrome?

I'd say it sounds a bit like a reaction. I get a similar sensation when I eat pear and melon, my mouth goes itchy - weird I know.

But, definilty keep up with making that list, look on the labels of things too, they might well contain nuts =]


I'm still alive.
Must have been a miracle
It's been one hell of a ride
Destination still unkown
It's a fact of life: If you make one wrong move with a gun to your head
You better walk the line or you'll be left for dead.


I'm a runaway train on a broken track
I'm the ticker on the bomb that you can't turn back
Thats right.
I got away with it all and I'm still alive.
Let the end of the world come tumbling down.
I'll be the last man standing on the ground
As long as hot blood runs through my veins
I'm still alive.

I've recently been experiencing the same thing whenever I eat food that's hot, but it's not in my mouth it's on my lips.
I can't think of anything it can be, I've not eaten or drank anything new or unusual, I haven't changed any washing powder or shampoo or make up or anything.
If you're in the UK too then maybe it's something to do the weather or the volcano that's erupting as this started happening to me the other night and the volcano had erupted the night before.

I get hayfever pretty early in the year so it could be due to the weather and related to hayfever. I didn't think about the volcano but that's a possibility too.
I eat a lot of different things with nuts in and normally I'm fine, unless it's a reaction to one particular sort of nut, and the allergy advice is never very specific on food packaging

Hmm, I've always had mild hayfever so maybe it is that and mine's gotten worse because I was walking past plants today and I was really sensitive to the pollen and it smelt really strong.

Mine got worse too. My dad just grew out of his allergy although he still gets hayfever, but mine gets worse and worse every summer. So yeah maybe it could be the hayfever, although I'm pretty sure I always get a burning mouth after eating
