In brief: Burning mouth
Could be a primary problem or it could be related to underlying problems such as dry mouth, nutritional deficiencies heartburn, certain medications, or certain systemic medication problems such as thyroid disease.
Would avoid cinnamon, mint, spicy or acidic foods; increase fluids and consider saliva replacement substitute if dry mouth.; and would discuss underlying etiologies with your doctor.

In brief: BMS
Bms is benign.
The cause of bms is unknown.Two thirds of people with bms have a spontaneous partial recovery six to seven years after the initial onset, but in others the condition is permanent. Recovery is often preceded by a change in the character of the symptom from constant to intermittent. No clinical factors predicting recovery have been noted.
