Sore roof of the mouth
« on: May 21, 2014, 02:03:00 PM »
Hello for the last capsule of weeks the roof of my mouth feels sore. I have no ulcers but it feels burned.
Any ideas as to what this could be? Thanks!

I also have a sore roof my mouth right behind my teeth.  It matches the soreness on the front of my tongue.  I have had this for about 2-3 months.  It has gotten to where if my mouth is dry (which is often) it can effect my speech because it feels weird and makes me feel self conscious.

For me, I believe mine comes from dry mouth issues and I notice when I am nervous I press my tongue up against the roof of my mouth.  Through the day I am aware and avoid it but at night I know I am doing it because my tongue is almost glued to the roof of my mouth in the morning.

I tend to damage mine with certain foods, especially Pringles.  When I'm not having anxiety problems, it usually heals up in a couple of days, but when my anxiety is high it takes weeks to heal.  I think I just keep reopening it with my tongue without thinking about it.

Did you maybe drink or eat something hot that might have burned the roof of your mouth?  Soreness in the mouth tends to take several days to go away because it's so moist in there. 

I often get sore spots on my gums in different places and have no idea why.  It usually lasts 4-5 days.  I usually swish my mouth out with half hydrogen peroxide/half water because that will help kill off any bacteria and help it heal. 

I hope it goes away soon.

I bet that's it.  I've eaten hard candies sometimes and my tongue would end up really sore for a few days.   Probably a chip scraped the wrong way and left it sore.
