Sleeping with mouth ulcers

22 messages in this subject.

Hi im new to the site and was just wondering how people cope with mouth ulcers when they sleep and when they first wake up? i have developed lots of mouth ulcers all to the left side of my mouth both top and bottom due to a punch in the face. I find that i wake up during the night in real pain and they tend to hurt especially during the morning. Does anyone have any good tips or advice to control the pain during these periods? Many thanks

You are damn right they hurt more during the morning after waking up, my only suggestion is a good Anasthetic mouthwash such as Difflam

I find they tend to hurt more as the day goes on.

i find that when i am suffering a bad dose of mouth ulcers the pain doesnt seem so bad in the morning, its after i have eaten something that they start to become uncomfortable, so i try to avoid anything to eat until as late as possible in the day. mouth ulcers are terrible but theyve worked wonders for my diet!!

I have tried this new stuff - seems to work good - it is called CLOSYSII. I just bough the tooth paste and have used the oral finishing rinse. There is no alcohol - LSL or anything else in it - it is tasteless but promotes healthy gums and clean oral enviromnent and kills harmful bacteria that causes bad breath. You can get it at Walfreens or on line at www.smilekiss.com or 800-979-5222. No I do not work for this company - my herbalist put me onto this!

these things have seem to be ruining my life - seriously...I am irritable, in rotten form with everyone and myself; it hurts like hell to talk and if I have to repeat myself, I feel like I can kill the person who doesnít hear me properly. Basically I am a misery to be around and the pain inside my mouth and all around my throat, roof of mouth but most especially on and at the edges of my tongue,brings tears to my eyes very easily. I feel pathetic because itís noy like there is anything really wrong with me - nothing serious - and nothing that anyone could really understand. This site is amazing because at least you know you are not the only one slowly going around the bend. I have had them for 15 years and tried EVERYTHING - valtrex, adcortysl, difflam, cortisone, aspirin,lignocaine, ponstan, every paste, spray and tablet invented. I have seen the leading oral,dental ( and even gastroenterological) specialists in the US, IRELAND, ENGLAND and Mexico. I have been blood tested, biopsied and allergy tested in every country - nothing. Basically they tell me No known cause/no known cure. I know stress must be a factor, but what a cop-out...I am sure that I am no less stressed when I donít have them than when I do. Right now, I have probably 20 little miseries burining the inside of my mouth and throat - I have to suspend my tongue in the middle of my mouth so it doesnít hurt and I am going insane. In desperation, I went to a leading dermatologist here in Mexico ( I hadnít tried that specialty) and was advised to take thalidomide - maybe it works and maybe it doesn;t but I wonít be taking it because of its other risks. Finally I am wondering if anyone has seen an immunologist and discovered any thing useful...? Maybe itís just about managing your life with them knowing no cure is possible - I just donít know what else to try - everything on this site I have tried with zero effect! But itís good to reas about how everyone else is trying to cope. Sometimes the pain is psychological too!and

Try going to a rheumatologist and asking about Behcetís symdrome and the drug colchicine.

has anyone tried iodine? My dentist applied it to my ulcers last time I was there. They were new ones just coming in so I am not sure if it was just the iodine or if they were just not bad ones. I am also using Zilactin B which seems to only help w/ the pain & not duration. The best thing I found was something I obtained illegally online, it was some sort of acid that cauterized the ulcer. You dabbed it on the ulcer, let it sit for 3 seconds & rinsed it out well. It was pretty dangerous though, if you dripped it on your tounge or lip it burned it badly. I threw it away about a year ago b/c it was so expired & forgot to make note of the name of the product, it was a lot like those nitro sticks.

Hi Orla,
I can really relate to what you are going through. I have been off work now for 4 days as I am unable to speak properly, Iíve got 10 ulcers on my throat, some really far down. My left lymph gland on my neck is very swollen. Went to my GP about the pain Iím in and he gave me Flagyl, some of the ulcers healed but then new ones popped up. Iím also taking ibuprofen (anti-inflammatory) and codeine medication every 5 hours or so to try to control the pain. This does help but not completely. Iím getting dehydrated as I have difficulty dealing with the pain of swallowing water but I force myself to do so. Iíve suffered from mouth ulcers for as long as I can remember, but Iíve never had them this bad. The most frustrating thing is trying to find a doctor who understands the torture that these little things cause. Have you had your iron levels checked? I have noticed a pattern of low iron and bad flare ups. Hope you are feeling better. My thoughts go out to everyone suffering from these horrible things.

Kelly, thank you and everyone for suggestions. I have a respite these days for some reason and Iím going through a horrible break-up and Iím stressed as hell and yet the ulcers have abated somewhat, so it ainít stress! Am going to an immunologist thiw week and weíll see if any more light shed on this - will let you know. Thanks, Orla.

I've used this as a child and still uses it now. I don't know much about how it works, but usually after a few days the mouth ulcers will disappear. It's called Wintermelon Frost (It sounds weird I know, but it's a Chinese Oral Medicine xD) Basically you pour a bit of the powder onto your ulcer (yeah, it can only be applied to those that are reachable) and just do what you do. After a few hours, reapply again as the powder would probably have been swallowed. Visit your nearest Chinese/Asian medicine store (whatever you call them) and ask for this. If they don't seem to know, just describe your problem to them and they'll hopefully be able to find a cure! :)

I am suffering from this horrible condition from past 17 years. I get them once in two months for sure. Now it is 2 am in the night and I am not able to sleep due to the pain I have. Two huge ulcers sitting on either sides of my tongue hurts so badly. I cant move my tongue at all. Not able to eat anything. Just drinking hot tea or water using straw all day. Life is so miserable and quality less. But seeing all the comments, I am not alone. Lets support each other to come out of this pain. Nothing , no medication is showing any healing , some medicines hurts so badly tht I have no courage to reapply them. Please help us God.

Hi I use to suffer because of mouth ulcer and really hate it. When I got serious one that made me even difficult to speak, my doctor recommad me to spray KamillosanM to the ulcer and it works really well. If I spray before eating , I can eat well after 3 or4 minutes of spraying. It works like a maricle. I used to try other medicines that are paste form too. But nothing worked like that spray. If someone interest and could get that spray there, try that. Im sure you wont regret.
