Burning Mouth Syndrome-BMS – Sharon H-Part 4

(Music) It’s been three years since I’ve been
coming here, actually in the first of May, and when I
first came, I was on 12 painkillers a day, and in
excruciating pain. Able to function, well, I thought I was,
anyway, I’m not sure that I really was. And here, three years later. I’m on no pain medication. And whereas I couldn’t eat hardly anything, I
have a condition called burning mouth syndrome, and everything was affected by
what I ate. My mouth was sore. I felt like I had canker sores.
I thought I had tooth pain. I thought my tongue felt like it had a knife going
through it. I had all these symptoms. Obviously, none
of this was really happening, but my nerves were telling me that
that’s what was happening, so I was not able to eat anything
with spices, or citric or anything like that, and now, three years later,
I’m glad to say that I’m still gluten-free and sugar-free
under Dr. Jaudy’s prescription, which I don’t find
any problem doing at all, but I now can eat
everything again. I can have garlic, I can have onions,
I can have fruit, I can… wonderful orange today I had from
Palm Springs. Oranges and lemon, vinegar, all these things I
didn’t eat at all. I probably had forgotten what food
tasted like, and now I’m able to do it. And you know, I feel great. I sleep well, I’m up all day, I don’t have to rest
in the afternoon. When I came to see him, I was
coming home at 4:00 to 6:00
to rest, or 3:00 to 6:00 to rest. I couldn’t stay
out late at night. I would stay out until nine or ten o’clock
or nine o’clock, and then go home, and now my husband and I are out
to midnight again, like we used to be. So my life has changed totally. When I first came in, I couldn’t
tolerate any kind of smells. It just upset my mouth, and
I went into amazing pain right away.
Even wildflowers in Colorado bothered me, let alone
any perfumes, or scented candles, or mint gum if
anybody was chewing it next to me. Now I can tolerate most of this.
Wildflowers don’t bother me, I can walk in and out of a
perfume counter. I can’t stay, but I can walk in
and out without being
affected too much. I can get my nails done again,
I can get my hair done again, so it’s been a total transformation. Dr. Jaudy has been incredible
and his wife Dr. Tina, their care is amazing, and there has
never been any day, any moment
when I have called them, that they haven’t returned my call
immediately, even if he’s in Europe. Luckily, I don’t need him quite as
much as I used to. There was a month where I think I called him twice a day, and that was part of the time when
he was in Europe. So you know, just getting through
that month, and he got me through it. I live in Kansas City, and the
first year I came out here about six times,
and then I came about four times. He’s always there for me. It’s a
wonderful experience. I recommend it to anybody
who has any problem that
he could possibly help. It is absolutely life changing.
I am quite sure that he has saved my life. (Music)
