If you are...: If you are a smoker then stop. These can be sensations that are a warning to stop. I say this because you have smoker at the end of your message. These can be cause also by hot liquids if you do this frequently. Stop now before you have cancer.

Serious red flag: Your body is telling you that you are showing signs of adverse reaction to smoking. See an Oral Surgeon to evaluate for oral cancer. Follow your Dentist's advice about quitting. You don't have time. Your body is telling you to quit now.
