Have just recentely started getting a burning/sore mouth and tongue and palate. I looked on line about it and found it ‘could’ be yet another thing with the fibro! Or it could be that I have just started taking furmeric gummy’s, and they are making things sore-who knows. Anyone have the same problems with them or a sore mouth/tongue with fibro?
Hope everyone is having afairly good weekend.
interesting, especially as I now struggle much more with a burning tongue/mouth than I used to, due to a histamine-type reaction.
If you mean turmeric, then I must say that my stomach reacts severely to it with burning, like to all anti-inflammatory spices, ginger for instance is tough on my stomach, esophagus and mouth too.
So I’d be pretty sure that it’s actually the gummies, just that in my case my stomach is more sensitive and in yours your mouth…
Your stomach is OK with it?
As a compromise maybe you can nip off tiny bits of it and see if that burns less and you still get a bit of the taste… But if it’s about it being anti-inflammatory the dose will be too small, so you’d need to supplement properly.
Edit: Forgot what I do for it: keep cooling water in my mouth for a time helps a little bit, mainly I use GC dry mouth gel, as my dry mouth also causes a similar kind of burning. Not perfect though.
Yes, sorry, I did mean turmeric, I forgot to proof read Lol. I haven’t taken one of the gummies since Friday, but so far still sore, feels dry, and no taste of food at all when eating. Just seems to make things worse for a while again. Funny thing, my stomach seemed ok with it as been taking it for about 10 days now, but now my mouth complaining.
I’m going to look in shop tomorrow to see if there is anything I can get that might help.
Thanks for replying. SueT.
I wouldn’t have expected side effects to last that long, but they do “fit”! Hope it gets better soon!
