Thousands Of People From Across The U.S. And Around The World Have Come To Us For Elimination Of Burning Tongue And Related Conditions When All Else Has Failed

suffered from dizziness and felt like tongue was on fire

“I thought I was having a nightmare because I had such terrible dizziness and my tongue felt like it was on fire. Dr. Klemons and his staff made me feel like I’m a new person. It’s like a dream come true because it’s all gone.” - Gloria S.

burning tongue and mouth, hoarseness, sore throats and difficulty swallowing

"...burning tongue and mouth, hoarseness, sore throats and difficulty swallowing are gone. ” - Madeline D.

There are numerous causes of burning tongue including, but not limited to the following:

  • Yeast and other infections
  • Blood diseases
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Nerve injuries
  • Reflux of stomach acid
  • Tumors (rarely)
  • Reactions to Medications

If burning or changes in taste are your only symptom, we are of the opinion that you should see a specialist in Oral Medicine. They can be found by calling a local dental school or through the Yellow Pages by looking in the section which lists “Dentists”.

However, studies suggest that approximately 75% of people who report burning tongue (glossodynia) or “Burning Mouth Syndrome” also suffer from headaches, face pain, and other muscle and joint related conditions which we treat. Interestingly, burning and painful tongue and burning mouth are almost always the first symptoms to go away.

"I severely injured my face and tongue in a bad accident and couldn't eat or accomplish anything until I came here for treatment. I just got better and better until it was all gone." - Brian K.

“I honestly would have paid any amount of money to stop having migraines and pain in my tongue, throat, and chest. I became non-functional and made so many mistakes because I couldn’t think straight. I can’t tell you how good it feels to feel good and not have to think about how much I hurt for the first time in 19 years. I really have no pain at all. I really smile and laugh.

Everyone here is so fabulous. They’re truly like family. I couldn’t be more appreciative of my ear, nose and throat specialist for sending me here. I didn’t realize it at the time, but that was the greatest day of my life." - Mary Lynn F.

“I used to sit on the floor and push my head against the wall as hard as I could while screaming from the pain. I couldn’t even talk to the doctors I went to and now I barely remember how terrible it was like to be in pain. I’m so happy I came here from North Carolina.

Dr. Klemons is the first doctor who ever let me tell him what the entire problem was. The fourteen specialists I went to at the medical schools and private practices gave me almost fifty different medications which never helped and often made me feel really sick or gain weight. I flushed them all down the toilet.

Before I was treated here, I had twenty-five different symptoms. These are just a few of them:

Headaches all over my head
A burning sensation in my tongue and all over my face
Pressure in my ears and eyes that made me feel like they would burst
Difficulty swallowing
Horrible constant ringing in my ears
A crushing feeling in my face under my eyes

It’s just amazing to be without the agonizing pain I had for so long. It’s all gone since the RF procedure. I went shopping the next day. Everyone here is so nice and the therapy is so relaxing.” - Jennifer S.

“My tongue used to burn so bad that I was scared and distracted all the time. Without exaggerating, it felt lethal. Other doctors ignored me, but Dr. Klemons found out why it was hurting so badly and made it go away. I love the way everything is organized here. Everyone here is excellent. This is the best doctor’s office I have ever been to in my life.” - Ernestine G.

“Twelve years ago I suffered from migraines, burning tongue, dizziness, ear, eye, and face pain, chest pain, tinnitus, and vomiting - until I treated with you. All of it was gone until I was injured. When I got hurt I went right back to you.” - Tabitha F.

“My tongue doesn’t burn anymore, my chest doesn’t hurt anymore, and my head, face, eye, ear, and throat don’t hurt anymore. What’s more, I’ve been given the tools to deal with my stress.

The therapy and everyone here is awesome. Dr. Klemons is one in a million. I wish that other doctors were as attentive and explained everything as well as he does.” - Joelle S.
