Acupuncture in the Treatment of Burning Mouth Syndrome (BMS)

The main symptom of BMS is burning pain in the mouth connected with scalding feeling or tingling. But numbness, dry mouth, taste alterations and restlessness are symptoms occurring with BMS too. BMS is more common in woman than in men and usually starts from the age of 50. Identifying a single cause for the occurrence of BMS is not possible, since there are several aspects that play a role in the chances to develop it. Menopause can be a causing factor and often hormonal changes are involved.
