Burning Mouth Syndrome | Symptoms


What are the symptoms of BMS?

People who have BMS often feel like they burned their mouth with a hot liquid. They may also have a dry or sore mouth, or a bitter or metallic taste in their mouth. Some people who have BMS feel pain constantly. For other people, the pain comes and goes. The pain of BMS may be mild in the morning and get worse during the day.
