I believe I have burning tongue. Syndrome. I am 48 and am

Resolved Question:

I believe I have burning tongue. Syndrome. I am 48 and am post menopausal. I am 5'3" And a little overweight. I have two teenagers so life is not without stress!
For the past 10 days I have been driven to distraction with a burning sensation inside my mouth, I have a metallic taste. I wake several times at night as the back of my throat feels dry and I frequently become overheated (I assume because of menopause).
I am not on any medication, I have been well enough that I haven't seen my homeopath for around 2 years (nat mur. Was my constitutional remedy - which I have taken, but didn't help with symptoms). Can you offer me any advice?
