Is it normal extremely painful mouth sores?

I got mouth sores( canker sores) for the first time this year. Last time on my inner lip, this time is probably the worst pain ive ever felt. Its near my throat and i dont want to eat and im living on Orajel. I feel unwell and no energy.
Seriously if i could go into a coma till its gone id say YES PLEASE.
Are mouth sores this bad for you guys?

Is It Normal?

  • I used to get these, so I sympathise. They're a miserable thing to have and chronic pain can thoroughly screw up your life.

    If you look online, there are various remedies that are supposed to help the ulcers heal. It's been many years since I had one, but my recollection is that if it was in a part of my mouth where it was possible, I used to fold up a piece of paper towel, put it on the ulcer to dry it out and leave it there for as long as possible. As always with these things, it's impossible to know if that helped them heal faster, but my recollection is that it reduced the pain somewhat and my feeling was that it did help the healing process.

  • Try eating tums before you go to sleep. I used to get those a lot, its from burping up stomach acid.

  • I had some extremely painful canker sores on the inside of my inner lip as a teen for around a week. A bunch of them and my lip was swollen, everything hurt I could barely eat. I remember I used to gargle with salt water every night and I guess I probably took aspirins as well.

    • My first call would be a brine or alcohol. Wouldn either of these be correct if I get a sore like that?

      • That might possibly help, but the alcohol would sting like a bitch and I'm sure a high salt concentration brine would too.

        • Oh I expect it to hurt, but if it stings to solve the problem or dampen the future pain then it is worth it.

          Salt is great for a general throat/mouth ailments, especially sore throats.

    • That's cold sores. Canker sores are different. I once got a canker sore from accidentally biting my lip.

  • You might want to ask this person for advice. You have to be doing the same things.

  • Use a peroxide mouthwash, it'll knock them on the head in a day or so.
