In brief: Very unlikely
The burning mouth syndrome is at best, poorly understood.
Nasal steroid sprays have been in widespread use for 24 years and have not been associated with "burning mouth." if you had been using the sprays and developed the burning mouth syndrome it is most likely a coincidence.

In brief: Burning mouth
Yes sometimes. Secondary yeast infections can come with such sprays and cause burning.
Rinse your mouth out after using steroid sprays. If you have the problem now see your doctor to help you get rid of the oral candidiasis.
