burning tongue syndrome

Postby zorrro13 on Mon Aug 20, 2007 6:43 am

I have recently developed what is known as burning tongue syndrome. Feels like i burnt it drinking hot cofee to quick except it doesnt go away and has a metalic taste . Also the tongue has a white coating over it that can be removed if brushed although very sensative. just wondering if this is a byproduct of osa and does anyone have a similar condition here

If my experience in mouthleaks is anything to go by, they might be a cause.

Do you mouthleak? If so, you may want to try taping you mouth shut during the night -

Burning tongue

Postby Pad A Cheek on Mon Aug 20, 2007 7:05 am

Hi your symptoms reminded me of something newborns can get called
Thrush. I do not know if this is what you are experiencing but it is worth looking into.
Here is a link I found about thrush.

http://www.netdoctor.co.uk/diseases/fac ... thrush.htm

I found it interesting too that it listed diabetes as connected to this, and we know that diabetes is related to sleep apnea.

I do hope you find out what is going on, this burning tongue is not something I have heard of before regarding CPAP use.

Karen

burning tongue

Postby Pad A Cheek on Tue Aug 21, 2007 6:26 am

I am so glad that it is clearing up. I do hope you never have a problem with that again. I am sure it was not a very nice thing to experience.

I am glad drops helped. It is enough of a challenge to get used to the CPAP without pain in your mouth too.

Take care,

Karen

I am so glad to have clicked onto this site this morning........I have been experiencing the burning tongue every night in the past week. After reading, I have decided to begin using listerine rinsing as part of my daily hygiene, I might even try peroxide rinsing.........I usually wash my mask quite often but I have been staying at my son's house this past month and much of my usual routine has been altered.........Upon reading the anti-fungal comment, a light bulb flashed in my head! I am hoping my symptom during sleep will disappear......as I know it did take me a very long time to become c-pap mask friendly..........I have finally become so pleased with my quality of life since using my machine every night and also at nap-time..............I actually look forward to wearing it at night! Thanks again for sharing on your web-site!

My hubby and I got thrush from some turbo garlic bread we made--too much garlic, it appears.
His went away fairly quickly, but mine lingered.
The lozenges the doctor RX'd me were no help at all.
But I had a stroke of insane, twisted genius:
I had him give me his used chewing gum (hubby, not the doc),
and I re-inoculated my mouth with the good bugs that kill thrush.
It worked!

You can get thrush after a course of antibiotics, because the antibiotics can kill the "good" bacteria and allow the fungus to get the upper hand.

Likewise, steroids, particularly inhaled steroids from asthma medications can cause an overgrowth of fungus. It's CRUCIAL to rinse your mouth well after using steroid inhalers (powder or spray). I'm allergic to anti-fungals, so I'm vigilant about this, because oral thrush would be very hard to deal with if I got it.

The fact that you got this also means that you need to work on your "flora"--beneficial bacterial populations which overpower the fungi that cause thrush--by eating lots of fermented foods (not fermented alchohol! :lol: ) like yogurt, sauerkraut, pickles, kimchee, kamboucha, etc. You can also take acidopholous capsules--good ones are found in the refrigerated section of your local health food store.
