Hi, I have burning sensation in my throat, lips, face, ears and scalp. Problem is burning happens, sometime in throat, other time in scalp and when there is in throat and lips, there is small sensation of pain in one or other ear also. Sometime my face burn. Burning starts just after I take breakfast in the morning and keep on either increaisng or stay constant throughout day. Its almost 6 months and I am not sure whom to contact for this. I checked with Neurology and he gace some medication which I checked was for depression and sleep but that made my situation worse. Now I feel vertigo also after taking that medication. I just took that medication for 2 days (Mirtaz, Acmil and Olianz). Please suggest which stream should I contact? I already had my blood test and thyroid test. I am taking Thyonorm 75 and B12 1000mcg as I was deficient in this. Thyronorm I am taking from last 4 years.

Hello there, welcome to the ehealth forum and I am glad to help you.
You seem concerned by burning sensation at variable places in your body for the last 6 months or so.
Without examining you and taking your history I cannot provide an accurate clinical diagnosis. I assume your neurologic examination is normal. The symptoms you have described involve various regions of your body at various times. I agree with having the MRI of the brain and cervical spine to exclude structural problems, and inflammatory disorders. B12 deficiency, thyroid dysfunction, and rheumatologic conditions (such as connective tissue disorders and fibromyalgia) can give diffuse symptoms. These disorders can be evaluated with blood work, and a consultation with a rheumatologist. Also, if other causes are being treated, psychological stressors can also cause similar symptoms.
I hope this helps.
Hope this helps. Take care.
