I had 2 root canals, one on each side at the same time, one failed and had to be extracted. The other is just about settled but the crown wasn't right, kept rubbing my tongue and irritating it - awaiting another one. This has happened over the last 3 months - There was not one week I was not at either the dentist, endodontist or oral surgeon for various adjustments or procedures- and actually stressed me out so bad that I am now on anti-anxiety meds. A few weeks ago my tongue and pallet started burning- Dr. Google says it's burning mouth syndrome. I'd appreciate an honest answer on this-is this a real thing from my dental work or a result of my stress and anxiety? I haven't mentioned it to any dentist or doctor yet-afraid I'll be labeled as nutty. If I knew it was from my stress I can probably wait until my meds kick in and see how it goes.Thanks in advance for any opinions.
