In October of 2008 I was diagnosed as having burning mouth syndrome. I had been to doctors, dentists and allergists before seeing a mouth specialist.
I am really not convinced because whereas my mouth, lips and teeth have a burning sensation which comes and goes - what really bothers me is the burning on my face. It is mainly around my eyes or upper lip, but I do have sensations of burning patches all over my body. I asked the specialist and he said that the face is close to the mouth so it could be, but had no other explanation.
