I'm so behind over here. But I just gotta tell you this story, it's soooo weird!

I had to slow down on the wine tasting because, my mouth was getting so sensitive and sore that I couldn't get passed even ONE glass (especially reds!). I mean, the roof of my mouth AND tongue was totally raw, I couldn't chew anything but soft foods (even crackers hurt) and my taste buds were like non existent and EVERYthing burned when I ate. (even just salt and pepper) Seriously, I was almost affraid that I had oral cancer or something. Shocked

So, I thought at first it was my new meds, so I quit taking them for a few days. Didn't help. So I totally quit eating any spicy stuff (especially salt) and still, my mouth was sensitive.

Well, I've always used a sensitive toothpaste and had tried using Crest sensitivity paste. I decided to try something else, peroxicare w/ baking soda something or another. Within 2 days, almost all of the soreness is GONE! Finally, after a week my mouth is getting back to normal. Can u believe it? have you ever heard of such a thing?

Aaaaaaaanywho, I can finally drink that bottle of Pinot Noir I bought at the first of the month........so I'll be back, probably Friday LOL

But seriously, there for awhile, I was getting scared. Like, how horrible would oral cancer be to a foodie??????? Shocked Shocked Shocked
OMG, then I saw a segment on tv about a CHEF dude that had oral cancer. (but caught it in time, whew)

DD - keep a close eye on that and go to the doc if it happens again!!!! I am sure it is probably some kind of allergic reaction to something (maybe a new toothpaste or something?)

I have my bottle of wine sitting on my kitchen counter and every night I want to crack it open. I am definitely hoping for this Saturday!

Thanks Cara, I will for sure. (trust me, that crap freaks me out)

I did already have one that I even wrote up the review on, but I don't think I posted it, it was in my "can't taste anything" phase, so I thought it wasn't fair LOL

Dude I don't know! I've used several others for years, and switch around alot, but I think it was this particular sensitive toothpaste. Plus, the "mint" was killing me and burning! I almost went with plain ol' baking soda but found this toothpaste with some in it and it's a good in-between.

Come to think of it, I had been using that toothpaste before I got these new meds....maybe that's where the reaction came from? I'll have to ask the dentist next time I go, see if he's heard of such a thing.

Sometimes, when things are labeled "mint" (Instead of Peppermint or Spearmint) they will slip Wintergreen essential oil into it... Wintergreen has a tendency to cause allergic reactions... It's a little on the caustic side... Like Clove oil...

I don't think it's that I'm developing a reaction to wintergreen, I mean, I always (still) eat wintergreen mints and they don't bother me???....or could it be a different reaction in different products? I've never had allergies (except sulfa drugs) so I don't know much about them. Well, hell, I threw the tube away so now I can't even remember what brand it was. LOL
