Burning Mouth Syndrome

    Morning All! I found the TMS website looking for answers to my burning mouth. I can say that my burning mouth now after a week is barely noticeable although that pain has been replaced from time to time by shoulder and neck pain along with increased anxiety, but I see clearly the correlation and the nature of TMS and I kind of smirk at it now. I wanted to post this so that others with "BMS" can have a place to share. I was a member of a BMS website and have encouraged others to come check this out as it has been the answer for me. Happy day!

    I first heard of BMS when Dr. Sopher added it to my list of TMS symptoms in Appendix A. Since then I've seen and spoken to several others with it, and it is TMS.

    BMS is TMS is CFS is RSD is RSI is OCD is FAI is UTI is VPB is RLS is TMJ. People suffer greatly from acronymitis and never realize it.

    The epidemic spreads because they make up new names for the same thing. In the confusion the target is lost.

    Steve, this whole business is amazing. I have one sister with RSD and another with Fibro. Our growing up in a home with alcoholics is a thread that binds us and our physical sensations are saying everything we have been unable to say. The three of us are complete "goodists" and would do anything for anyone at the detriment of ourselves. I am facinated! I hold a Master's degree in Counseling and have been searching for years for something I could do with people that has meaning. This has certainly peaked my interest! I did send an email to Dr. Sopher about BMS and he said he was including it in his latest publication and I am very interested to read it. You have both done so much to help other that it must be so rewarding. I have not shared this with anyone in my family yet. I need to do the work and feel the results fully before I try and communicate it to anyone.

    So you just found the sight-Wow- that's cool

    and it didn't take long for me to realize my goodist personality

    Hi Eric! How are you feeling?

    Leslie, this business is amazing indeed. I did an interview out of southern California a couple months ago and the host had RSD. She started our conversation with, "well I have RSD" ....meaning TMS did not pertain to her. But Dr. Sarno and Sopher healed quite a few people with RSD, so we know it's TMS. It's also clear that fibro is TMS, but don't try to tell people that. I've helped several people heal from fibro, and yet the fibromyalgians will not accept it. The reason is because they need their symptoms.

    The symptom itself exists so that the person doesn't have to experience the painful emotions and thoughts, so of course they don't want to hear that it's a mindbody effect. That's why they have it, to protect them from emotional pain, which is far more painful than physical pain. The only people who heal, who are willing to heal, or those that are ready to heal. They've reached a point of awareness, consciousness/acceptance, that they can handle their inner demons. They are ready to face their own fire. The aphorism states, "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear." But it could well say, "when the student is strong enough, he will free himself."

    I hope you use your Masters degree to help people heal. It is the most rewarding thing I've ever done, most likely because it's what we're supposed to be doing.

    Thanks so much for the warm welcome. Everyones enthusiasm is catching. Funny that I had been on a BMS facebook site for a week or so before I found this one. I went back there and made a post that I had found the answer...for ME. Put this website out there for others to explore. Well, some folks with burning mouth got really angry about the suggestion that something other than medication could help. A few very hostile people that really want to hold onto their diagnosis. I have always been a behaviorist at heart denying the subconscious, but don't I have a lot to learn?! :) Yesterday I was telling my daughter about a trip I took home from Italy when my mother was ill about fifteen years ago. Telling the story I was really trying to share a story about the traveling and the distance, but all the sudden I started to cry. VERY unusual for me. She asked me what was wrong and I told her I guess something needed to be let out. I then told her about the human side of the story and it was yet another example of what I have kept in for a very long time. My neighbor is a granola eating, LCSW that is always going on about some repressed something or another. She drives me nuts, but I guess maybe I need to get the old yoga mat out and start doing yoga with her in the yard instead of drinking coffee while I watch her out the window smugly. :)
