What are symptoms of burning mouth syndrome (BMS)?

ANSWER

If you have burning mouth syndrome, your mouth can feel like you just drank hot coffee or had some hot soup. You also might have trouble swallowing, a dry mouth, a sore throat, or a bad taste of metal in your mouth. If the painful burning doesn't go away or gets worse, see your dentist or doctor.
