There : There are other issues that can cause this. There is a thought that some vitamin and mineral deficiencies can cause mouth pain. There is actually a condition called "burning mouth syndrome" that can cause these symptoms. Be sure you are eating a healthy diet with and consider a vitamin supplement, but as this has been persistent it would be reasonable to have blood work and further medical evaluation.
