    It's also a symptom of anxiety. See the "Symptoms" link on the left side of the page.

    Good Luck!

    What's amazing to me is just how many physical symptoms anxiety can actually cause. When you read through the symptoms in that link you think "no way", but they are documented physical symptoms caused by the mind.

    It's interesting to say the least. I have neurological side effects from chemotherapy. Nueropathy in my feet being one of them. They feel numb and cold (they're not to the touch) and I get "stabby" pains in them all the time but there's nothing physically wrong. I also get body twitches and RLS (restless leg syndrome) and a bunch of other things but much of it is caused by my body and brain misfiring due to the effects of the treatment. It's crazy I know but it is what it is and much better than the alternative.

    Good Luck

    Shelley, with respect, you really need to try to be firm with yourself and stop Googling, stop reading, or stop researching symptoms.

    In HA, knowledge is NEVER a good thing. You just jump from the worst thing to the worst. It doesn't squash the anxiety, so what purpose does it serve for you or any HA sufferer?

    Cancer...MS...the list will just go on hun.

    The thing about Googling is it just validates what you fear, so you actually inevitably find the one thing you are scared of, and the anxiety gets bigger.

    I have the same as you right now. And a burning mouth. I put it down to my anxiety being a problem right now. If it carries on and on, I'll see a doctor. If not, it's all good.

    Try if you can to just tell yourself 'ok, so this is weird, but I won't let it get to me and I'll see how things go.'

    It is hard, but it can be done. x

    Remember... the brain is a powerful organ And please stop consulting Dr. Google. A computer search engine cannot physically examine nor diagnose you!

    Good Luck!

    Re: horrible taste in mouth

    Hi

    I have had a metal taste in my mouth and a sore tongue,palate and a nerve feeling in my teeth since February.

    My psych says it's a part of anxiety. I went to an oral consultant who said van(burning mouth syndrome)
    I'm now trying to accept its a part of my anxiety! To see if it eases as nothing else as helped!!

    I have heard it could be acid reflux...going up your esophagus and entering into you mouth. But yes...I think I experienced it from time to time...but it went away.
