Burning 🔥 tongue 👅

Anyone experiencing or have experienced this with Crohns? It’s a constant reminder that I’m not well somehow, any suggestions?
I drink tons of water.

  1. I haven't had this personally but I know it can be caused by B12 deficiency. I would check with your doctor, maybe they know better.

    1. Hi . On top of the information from Vern, I want to share with you this article from our editorial team on mouth sores and other oral symptoms: https://inflammatoryboweldisease.net/symptoms/mouth-sores-and-other-oral-symptoms. Hope you can get some answers and relief soon. Best, Richard (Team Member)

      1. Yes! This happened to me all last winter and my doctor could not figure it out.

        1. I agree with all of the above. I used to think it was accidental biting my tongue or burning it on hot food, but then realized it is usually the first clue that crohns is lurking and ready to strike!
