Patient Comments: Canker Sores - Symptoms and Signs

What symptoms and signs did you experience with canker sores?

Comment from: IUfan89, 19-24 Male (Patient) Published: February 15

I frequently develop canker sores. I have noticed that continuous caffeine consumption (days at a time), irregular sleeping habits, and heavy alcohol consumption all lead to my outbreaks. Unfortunately, the three usually happen in unison and I spend several days nursing my sores.

I've had recurring canker sores only on the right side of my tongue. Mostly on the side and underneath. It started when I lost part of one of my bottom molars which causes me a lot of tooth pain as well, especially cold things.

I get canker sores on the back of my mouth and on my throat which makes eating and swallowing painful. Thank God for Chloraseptic spray which immediately numbs the area better than anything else I've tried.
