What is Burning Mouth Syndrome?

 
Chapter: What Are Common Symptoms of BMS?

There are a variety of symptoms associated with BMS. The main symptom is a burning sensation, ranging from moderate to severe, in your mouth, throat, lips and tongue. Many patients have described the feeling as "scalding." Other symptoms include dry mouth or a bitter or metallic taste. Patients with BMS often say that the pain is gradual and spontaneous, intensifying as the day moves along. It can affect a person's ability to fall asleep. The discomfort and restlessness associated with BMS may cause mood changes, irritability, anxiety and depression.
