Lyme Disease Message Board

Lyme Disease Board Index

This is a strong, previlant symptom of Sjogren's Syndrome that people complain about. Reason I know this is b/c they thought Mark had this and Telvock was Dx w/it before Lyme. It is autoimmune.

Mark has had these symptoms in the beginning/middle of his undx period. He has a strong band 31 which Dr. Jones says is very suggestive of autoimmune triggers from the Lyme. Mark has had such strong Sjs symptoms at times--not being able to swallow, very dry mouth and eyes, and a burned tongue feeling.

All turned out to be Lyme--and has gone away with treatment. You could just be doing that herx thing with new weird symptoms that pop up. But oh yeah, I have not only heard of this, but experienced it and talked to many with the same.

I would watch closely and take some benadryl if you can stand it today. Helps with that a lot. Also you can get some Biotine mouth rinse which seems to help some. Careful with toothpast or any other mouth wash as it makes it worse and burns.
Mine is a little better. I kind of forgot that I burned my mouth on Friday when I went out to lunch. It was a vegetarian restaurant and I was eating a spinach wrap that had been heated. I bit into the inside and OUCH. It rolled around my mouth under my tongue and on top.

I forgot about it and I think what is going on is that healing is different know. Very swollen and painful. Getting better though. I swished with Salt Water last night.

I was going through my medical records and getting them organized into a binder and saw that Dr. J's did test me for Sjouren's Syndrome and I came back negative of course that was in September so things could have changed. I am praying that is not what I am dealing with...I don't want to add any more to my plate.

Thanks for the info. Laurie and the Concern ;) I hope you are having a great morning!
Band 31 was equivocal both in IgM and IgG antibodies...
Ladies :wave: ,
Weird that this conversdation happens this week. I woke up this mornin' with the right side of my tongue(back) feels like an ulcer on the back of the tongue/throat and attached to the gland in the throat/neck. I have this flair up every so ofter. I thought I had dealt witha situation last night but come to find out I just suppressed it :nono: . Guess I just buried it down. Gosh, I hate this!!
