Over sensitive mouth

Oct 31, 2016 8:42 PM

Does anyone else ever get an over sensitive mouth? I find the roof of my mouth gets super sensitive sometime. I asked the dentist but they were real concerned.

I can't eat anything too hot as it hurts the roof of my mouth and because I have trigeminal neuralgia on the left side of my face I can't always eat anything or even brush my teeth as the pain is so intense.
If the dentist has looked at the area and can't see anything like an infection which could cause it they might not see it as important and that it's nothing medical they can treat?
Maybe the next time you see your doctor ask them?
Sorry I can't be much help with this xx

Yes, it turned out that I was told after all the oral surgery and jaw surgery I endured, RSD has settled in. I used to eat VERY hot/spicy foods. (You know in the cartoons when they put the spoon in the pot and it comes out a nub?😜). Anyway, now, if there is even the slightest heat, my mouth feels like it's on fire. Even mouthwash kills me and I have to dilute it. Not a pleasant feeling. I wish I could tell you what to do for your mouth but you have to find what it is. I wish you the very best and send positive vibes and good karma your way! {{{Hugs}}}💕😊

I get ulcers all the time in my mouth, its from my meds. Maybe your sensitive mouth is from your meds?

I also get ulcers in my mouth. Mostly they come if I taste something that someone forgot to tell me is spicy. Those hurt.

Are you on methotrexate? It is know for causing your mouth to peel. Also not that long ago I read and saw on the news that either Crest (I think it was the Crest) or Colgate Complete. There were several people saying their mouths peeled after using it. Seems that the toothpaste had tiny plastic beads inside to polish your teeth. Hope I helped you.

When researching gabapentin some people said it impacted their health of their mouths ... Gum issues etc ... I know you are still trying find the source of your pain and I'm not sure what meds you are on.

I'm not currently on any prescription Meds because my doctors is a useless nob. As for the toothpaste, the plastic beads are banned in Canada so that can't be it. I do sometimes get ulcers in my mouth and I do sometimes find the skin peeling especially around where I had my wisdom teeth out years ago. I'm in the process of trying to find a new doctor. I've just been trying to keep track of everything that's out of th ordinary so when I do get a new doctor they can see what's been happening

Ask the doctor about "magic mouth wash" They gave it to me in the ER once. Lidocaine, benadryl and malox. You can swallow for throat//upper gi pain or swish and spit for mouth pain. Also there is probably an over the counter kind.

Logan, I never heard of that one before. I'll have to toddle next door to my dentist and ask about it..

I found my mouth reacts to certain foods.
If it's salty i get blood blisters
If it's acidic (citrus, tomatoes, fish sauce and so on) the roof of my mouth peels.
Are you keeping a food log?

Gotobef, those are things that happen to me as well.
