Abstract

Burning mouth syndrome (BMS) is estimated to affect 1 to 5% of the adult population, with women experiencing symptoms more frequently than men. The purpose of this study was to examine the psychosocial profiles of BMS patients to determine whether psychologic factors are related to pain reports. Based on previous literature, it was hypothesized that patients with BMS would be characterized by clinical elevations on standardized psychologic assessment instruments that included the Revised Symptom Checklist (SCL-90R) and the Multidimensional Pain Inventory (MPI).
