Please: Consult with an oral surgeon if you have not already for an evaluation / diagnostic tests to find out the underlying cause of your problem. Hope this helps.

Burning mouth?: I agree about seeing an oral surgeon. That would be my first stop. Also consider looking into burning mouth syndrome. It's a rather ambiguous 'garbage pail diagnosis' meaning that if you have oral pain and no other cause, we throw it in. There are a variety of treatments like gabapentin, capsaicin, etc. Consult an oral surgeon/oral medicine specialist.

Good suggestions... also an orofacial pain specialist may be able to help.

Pain: It is sometiimes very challenging to get the right diagnosis and find a drug that works... I would suggest seeing a dentist who specializes in orofacial pain. Ww .Aaop.Org.
