Beware the 5 Signs and Symptoms of Burning Mouth Syndrome

Taste changes. Individuals with Burning Mouth Syndrome complain of taste changes. Bitter, metallic tastes are the most commonly reported. While this specific taste change is a hallmark of Burning Mouth Syndrome, it is also recognized as a product of many medications, as well as sinusitis. However, patients experience relief once their medication is discontinued or their sinusitis is cured; with Burning Mouth Syndrome, the taste change is constant. Doctors may prescribe an oral rinse in an attempt to remove the bitter and metallic tastes, but it is a short term treatment at best.
