but I wasn’t able. Two weeks and 3 doctors appointments later I was diagnosed with GERD. I am 16, and I was told to make lifestyle changes such as cutting out dairy, greasy foods, spicy foods, chocolate, soda, and any citrus foods.
However, the symptoms are often similar enough to warrant taking them seriously and getting checked out for a more serious condition like a heart attack. These symptoms should be taken seriously. They can potentially signify the presence of another disorder called peptic ulcer disease. Such ulcers cause their own chronic symptoms and can bleed on occasion. In a few cases, if left untreated, they can burrow all the way through the stomach leading to a medical emergency called perforation.
Some patients compare it to having burned their mouth with hot coffee. Leonard, Jayne. “Why is my tongue burning?.” Medical News Today. MediLexicon, Intl., 23 Oct. 2018. Web.

About 3 days after taking the medication I completely stopped vomiting. It’s crazy that it took 9 years to diagnose me and fix me.
Once the burned tissue is healed, the sensitivity to touch is gone. Having burning mouth syndrome means your nerves were similarly damaged, but rather than heal over time, they remain in this oversensitive state. The nerves overact by firing signals to the brain that are not necessary. You feel pain from things that you normally would not feel at all. If you have discomfort, burning or soreness of your tongue, lips, gums or other areas of your mouth, see your doctor or dentist.

I am constantly thinking I have some type of virus because of my sore throat, only to find, after yet another visit to my doctor, that it’s “JUST heartburn”. Can anybody out there give me any help please. I have recently been diagnosed with GERD after suffering for a while with almost constant heartburn and a feeling of a lump in my throat. I had a barium swallow which diagnosed the acid reflux which has now been constant for almost 3 months now. I have no idea what triggered it off but it is awful all day apart from first thing in the morning.
The current gastroenterologist I’m seeing said she doesn’t think I’m a candidate for surgery. I’m not sure why, as I’m only 27, have had this for 10 years now, it’s obviously not going away, and I’ve tried almost every medication there is without long-term success.

This is a disease in which the nerves of the larynx (voicebox) are damaged. It is similar to BMS, except that the damage occurs further down the throat. Light reflux can cause significant symptoms if you have it in conjunction with BMS. If you have strong reflux, the resulting problems can be massive.
As for dentures you will know – if you recently got dentures or changed your dentures then this could be a prime cause for your BMS. This could be because of what the dentures are made from or it could be because of a bad fit that causes pressure on certain muscles in your mouth which could bring on the BMS. It’s this nerve damage sometimes called neuropathy which often leads to these problems in the mouth and sometimes throat. One thing that can happen is that said nerve in the mouth, tongue, throat or wherever will become damaged – this nerve will start to send false signals to the brain.
