Symptons of Menopause


I recently received my 3 month post-op check point email and was relieved to see "Burning tongue, burning roof of mouth" listed as a symptom of menopause. My tongue has been burning. My prescription for estrogen has been changed from the .1 patch twice a week to .5 mg estradiol tablet once each day but the tongue still burns. My throat even burns sometimes. As I said, I was relieved to see this listed as a symtom of menopause, so I searched the HysterSisters site for more information but was unable to find anything related to this. Can anyone help?

Symptons of Menopause

Although I haven't had this symptom, I did some searching on Hystersisters and found several threads that discuss this very issue. Thought they might help you:

Also, yeast infections (as mentioned in the 2nd thread) are a common problem with hormonal imbalance, and in particular lack of estrogen. See this list:

Oral thrush of the mouth is a type of yeast infection, and something you will want to get checked out by a doctor. Not saying you have this but it is a possibility and not something to take lightly. I am dealing with a fungal yeast overgrowth in my intestines and it is not fun whatsoever! Also, lack of estrogen can really dry out your skin, eyes, and vaginal membranes, so I suppose the same could be true of your tongue and throat membranes?

At any rate, please tell your doctor about this and get it checked out! I hope you find the cause and get some relief!

Symptons of Menopause

Hi, about a year after my Hyst. I had a strange feeling in my mouth. A burning tongue and throat, numbness in the roof of my mouth, burning down my esophagas, (excuse spelling). I had not read at that time that it can be meno. related so my first visit was to the dentist who couldnt figure it out, then the doc who said acid reflux and put me on Nexium. This didnt help but it went away on its own. But not for long it came back.

Two months ago along with the sore mouth I started with pain in my cheek bones which comes and goes and pressure in my ears also aches around the eyes. My doc finally said lets try HRT, this has to be hormone realted so after resisting the HRT route for so long I gave in for some relief. I am now four weeks into taking HRT and things are a little better. I actually have days without a sore mouth. I really hope things work out for you, you're not alone in this problem but as you can see it is not a common problem. On a web site call minni pauze, I found out that it is called sore mouth syndrom and there is a treatment down in the states for it. I was told B12 helps.

Take Care
