Coping and support

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Burning mouth syndrome can be uncomfortable and frustrating. It can reduce your quality of life if you don't take steps to stay positive and hopeful.

Consider some of these techniques to help cope with the chronic discomfort of burning mouth syndrome:

  • Practice relaxation exercises, such as yoga.
  • Join a chronic pain support group.
  • Engage in pleasurable activities, such as physical activities or hobbies, especially when you feel anxious.
  • Try to stay socially active by connecting with understanding family and friends.
