    Hi All,
    A little back story. Smoke half a pack a day, 25 years or so. Around the same time I quit, started vaping, I also had all my teeth extracted for dentures. Within a week of starting vaping/ teeth extracted using many numbing injections, I developed Burning Mouth Syndrome. ONE of these factors caused it. I am now miserable, with not much hope of ever being able to wear my dentures, as they make the burn WAY worse, but I am going to give up vaping, as it has been linked to BMS. Another person who has same issue contacted the CDC, and they want to hear from anyone like me. Any others with this issue?

    Uh, when you have a tooth extracted, dentists usually tell you NOT to suck anything for a good while; until it heals. Cigarettes, straws and I am more than sure that would include vaping. Because it causes dry socket, which is painful as all hell.

    Ive had dry socket more than a few times from smoking/vaping after extraction. It's painful as hell. I dont know if that's what your experiencing. If so I'm sorry.

    Just because I stopped vaping, it still damaged the nerves! So, to answer your question, no, I’m not a masochist!! The damage is done, thank you

    You said, "but I am going to give up vaping".
    My question was why did you vape for 2yrs while having this problem which caused you so much pain.
    What country are you from?

    So, you quit smoking, started vaping, had all your teeth removed with many numbing injections, and you were fitted for dentures ... and shortly thereafter you began experiencing BMS. Correct?

    I am sure that sucks ... a lot.

    Certainly you should try giving up vaping to see if it helps, but I would be hesitant to attribute it to vaping at this point. However, it could possibly be a rare reaction to one of the ingredients.

    It seems the causes of BMS are rather mysterious, but things affecting the nerves in the oral cavity are implicated --- which might point to the extractions and numbing injections. Also, allergic reactions to materials in dentures have been implicated. Other conditions have also been implicated (diabetes, thyroid issues). Also, once the pain starts, it may continue even if the original cause is found and addressed (neurogenic pain can be like that). So, even if it were a reaction to the dentures (and you say wearing them makes it worse), not wearing them won't necessarily make it go away.

    If nothing else, and I'm sure you've read and tried everything over the past couple years, I do hope you find some some relief for the symptoms.

    My mom says vaping makes her mouth itch. That's the closest I can come to helping you.

    My bad. Meant to say, I have given up vaping. Since you are not familiar with BMS, you wouldn’t understand. So, just ignore my thread please. I am from The USA, Texas to be exact!!

    I am quite aware of BMS. Maybe if you try unflavoured you wont suffer from it. Certain flavourings and additives used in food can cause it.
    Ill fitting dentures and compounds used in the manufacture of dentures can also cause it. I have experience with this.

    I don't believe I have ever heard of this sorry. My advice as always seek Medical Advice from a qualified Doctor.
