I'm 47 and have had a burning mouth and tongue for the past 2 years. Like others my tongue has the zig zag ridges as well. I have been to many Doctors, none of which seem to think it is too important. This last Doctor I have seen thinks it is Celiac's disease. So I have now started a gluten free diet. Also, I was extremely low on vitamin D. I have been taking Calcuim with vit. D in them, but for some reason was still really low. Since being on this diet and taking a 2000 mg of Vit. D, (almost 2 wks, but so far so good) my tongue does hurt, the bad taste is still there but it doesn't keep me up at night burning. I have seen my share of doctors. The things I have tried are: extra vitamin B (peed it right out), medicine for thrush (threw it up), sleep apnea study (not it), took lexapro (didn't help, made me feel like I was having morning sickness), was told it was burning mouth and there was nothing you could do about it, and lastly was told it was menopause and would run its course. So I hope this maybe of some to help to someone.
