hello this is my first post, I have had anxiety and panic attacks since the age of 18, and can not travel more than 10-15 miles from home without getting an attack but work on that problem everyday to try and cure myself. Lately a new problem has arose and has been driving me crazy with lots of pain and loss of sleep (going on 6 month's) My mouth has really began to hurt me and I have been seen by 2 doctors my dentist and oral surgeon for Burning mouth syndrome which is a burning sensation in the tongue, (both have had little knowledge of this problem and say my mouth looks fine) . I am at my wits end and can not stand the pain any more. I was wondering if anyone else is having this same problem and what are your symptoms and have you found anything to relieve the pain and sleepless nights. I am on ativan and that does seen to help a little but I really do not like to take any drugs unless I really have too. I am a man in my early forties and this problem seem to strike women that are going thought menopause so I can't understand whats going on, any help or comment we be helpful, Thanks

I have also had BMS for years. After finally being correctly diagnosed I found a great oral medicine specialist, whom I now see regularly. I now have two tools that I use that do a pretty darn good job of managing my symptoms. 1) Doxepin Hydrochloride oral solution, USP (concentrate) equivalent to 10 mg/ml. of Doxepin – swish and spit, 3-4 times daily as needed. Works as a topical anesthetic. 2) A third to a half of a piece of sugar-free gum ( I use Trident Tropical Twist; I tried, and don’t recommend, anything “minty”) – “parked” at various places in the mouth. This apparently serves as a “distractor,” interrupting the faulty nerve signals. I also have TMD, so chewing gum is generally discouraged. However, just chewing to soften for a minute or so, then, I just periodically move the small portion of gum (about the size of a blueberry) around in my mouth, positioning wherever it feels comfortable, this helps a lot.

Anyway, hope that passing on these tips might help someone else.
