Menopause and Burning Tongue
Hot flashes are a well-known symptom of menopause, and while burning tongue may not be as well known, it can be just as bothersome. Burning sensations in the mouth are usually linked to the hormonal fluctuations associated with menopause, and they can be easily ignored or attributed to other factors. However, burning tongue can be associated with dental health complications, including reduced saliva flow, a change in saliva composition, changes in nerve function and severe pain.
The pain tends to occur without the presence of mouth sores, ulcers, rash or discolorations and is most commonly described simply as a burning sensation. However, when your saliva decreases or changes in composition due to this condition, tooth decay and gum disease can become very real risks. Sugar-free gum and sugar-free candies can help stimulate saliva flow. Sipping cool water throughout the day can keep your mouth cool and relieve some of the discomfort associated with burning tongue and dry mouth. Avoiding tobacco products, spicy foods, cinnamon and acidic foods and beverages can also help alleviate your symptoms. The condition may be linked to nutritional deficiencies, so a healthy, balanced diet is essential if you are suffering from burning mouth symptoms.

An all natural menopause cure supplement designed especially for women in perimenopause and menopause, DON’T PAUSE contains a specific blend of powerful antioxidants, green tea extract, soy isoflavones and other ingredients that have been proven to help relieve your menopause symptoms, including burning tongue and dry mouth.
