  • burning mouth syndrome is a chronic pain condition of the tongue, mouth and soft palate affecting primarily women. I have been experiencing noticeable short term memory loss, especially of vocabulary. I am a professor, so this affects my life in a very immediate way -- both teaching and research/writing

    My mom suffers from a slowly progressing Cerebellar Ataxia. She first had the shakes, then trouble walking, then walked w/ a walker, now walks w/ a walker & falls a lot. But her short term memory has suddenly failed. It has come on quite rapidly. They have never narrowed down what is behind the Cerebellar Ataxia, but she has been on epilepsy meds since age 9 & she is 62 now. So it is possible it came on as a side effect of any number of these meds. There is no cure & she will not get better.


    not on Dec, 31, 2012:

    Burning mouth syndrome is really the same as other vit deficinecie sof the mouth , may be attributable to digestive disease and rampant mouth flora which are bad, inavading the gut,, causing leaky gut, possible a result of pancreatitis....burning mouth syndriome is anew made up name for the same old syndrome...just like the wimpy new name aids for memory loss. A rather stupid label. Read up, that's what the internet is for...seems educated dr's are getting stupider....stupider than ever before....
