Constant mouth sores
« on: February 10, 2014, 05:05:46 PM »
Hi All,
I have been having pretty much constant mouth sores for the past few months.
It's not that one or more sore is persistent. It's more that I get a sore or two, then they go and I'll get another one in another place.
I am a 32 year old female, non-smoker, light drinker.
At the moment, I have 1 sore under my tongue, 3 in my gums and 1 on the inside of my lip.....this is the most I can remember at any one time, which is why I am seeking advice here.
Please help! :(

Have you been to a doctor? That would be my suggestion. It's possible that you have something viral or bacterial with the way that it's spreading around.

Another possibility is anxiety - my father used to get sores all of the time from his anxiety, and he had to get a special cream for them. Those only appeared on his tongue as far as I know, though.

I had been having a lot of stomach issues and there was a possibility I had an IBD, so the past few months while I had been waiting on tests and results etc, I was thinking the mouth sores were a symptom of my IBD (which I don't have after all). So, yes, I had mentioned it to the doctor, but only in passing I guess.
I am also dealing with joint pain, in my knees and wrist. Not sure if there's any connection there. And still some stomach issues, which my Gastro thinks is probably IBS.
So, I'm definitely concerned about oral C, and other things like lupus.
I have never heard of anxiety causing mouth sores, that's an interesting one. Can it really do that though?

I should also add that I have 3 "swollen" node in my neck just under my jaw; one on the left and two on the right. Could these be connected?
Should I see a doctor or dentist or both?

I get them when stress goes up, but I found that certain nuts (walnuts in particular) really start the ball rolling.  Maybe yours is as simple as an unknown food allergy?

MOST anxiety happens at the subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state.  - AnxietyZone member Sixpack

Sounds to me like a virus, specifically hand, foot, and mouth disease.

maybe contracted from a child nearby who has it? (it is very contagious)

Go to the doctor and see what is up

Don't worry about OC -that doesn't "move around", nor does this sound at all like that.

Thanks for your response. Wouldn't hand foot and mouth disease come on more suddenly? I have been dealing with mouth sores for quite a while now. Also, I don't have any other symptoms of that, but I don't know too much about it.
