What might a pain in the palate indicate?

Good day. Two weeks ago I was with my husband and children for dinner at friends’. However, the next day I began to feel pain in the palate. I would not write to you if it was an ordinary baking that happened to me many times. This time the pain is much worse. My mouth is dry and my saliva is not working properly. Suddenly, I also began to have problems with consuming food and drinks. Initially, I could still drink and eat, but after a few days even drinking coffee caused a lot of discomfort, not to mention eating.

Currently my palate is itchy and dry. Worse, the husband complains that he has trouble falling asleepbecause I started to snore a little louder. The mornings are the worst of it all. After a night like this, I wake up with excruciating pain in my soft palate and throat. I am asking for help, what could this pain mean? Could I get infected? The meals at dinner were partly cooked and partly raw. I ate a lot of raw vegetables back then, so my guess is that maybe they caused this condition? Are there any proven ones home remedies for pain in the palate? Maybe some herbs, infusions etc.? Thank you for your response. Ania.

The doctor advises what the pain in the palate may mean

The causes of pain in the palate There are many. Often the reason is mechanical damage caused by hard food such as bones or bones. Pain in the palate may result from burns caused by hot food or liquid. Another common cause is canker sores. The causes of aphthae in the mouth There are many. It mainly talks about the decrease in immunity that may be caused chronic stress, diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, infection of the upper respiratory tract, allergies, deficiencies of nutrients, micronutrients and vitamins. Aphthas may appear as a result of mechanical damage as a result of inadequate tooth brushing, mismatched dentures. Smoking is favored by smoking.

Another cause of pain in the mouth may be an allergy. After contact with food that sensitizes us, there may be swelling in the mouth, itching, burning, redness. Another very common cause of palate pain is simply an upper respiratory infection. Pharyngitis caused by viral or bacterial symptoms is manifested by pain in the palate.

You mentioned dry mouth. Patients often suffer from dry mouth in the course of upper respiratory tract infections. A stuffy nose forces you to breathe through your mouth, which dries out the lining of your mouth. Next the cause of a stuffy nose may be chronic rhinitis caused by an allergy. This forces you to breathe through your nose again. In the case of snoring, the oral mucosa also becomes dry.

Other causes include Sjögren’s syndrome. It is an autoimmune disease in the course of which the external secretion glands are damaged, mainly the lacrimal and salivary glands. If your symptoms persist, I suggest you visit your GP. The doctor, after collecting a complete history and examining the patient, will decide on further proceedings. If necessary, he will order the necessary diagnostics and implement appropriate treatment.
