Sažetak
Burning mouth syndrome (BMS) is a chronic oral painful condition characterized by symptoms of burning in the oral mucosa, usually affecting the tongue in perimenopausal woman. Despite the extensive research, adequate treatment options are still lacking. The aim of this study was to compare efficacy of acupuncture and vitamin C in patients with BMS. Prior to the either therapy as well as after four weeks of therapy every participant fulfilled following questionnaires (STAI, OHIP-14, HAMILTON and VAS). A total of 42 patients were included (21 patients received acupuncture- 3 times during one week for four weeks on the points ST 8 (stomach- tou wei), GB 2, TE 21, SI 19 (small intestine- ting gong), SI 18 (small intestine- quan liao), LI 4 (large intestine-yuan) on both sides of the body as well as GV 20 (Governing vessel-bai hui), and other 21 patients received vitamin C-1g was administered after meal, 3 times during the day for four weeks). Significant decrease of STAI, OHIP-14, HAMILTON and VAS scores in patients treated with acupuncture was obtained. No significant reduction of the same scores in patients treated with vitamin C. It seems that acupuncture is beneficial in patients with BMS.
