Burning tongue, hydrogen breath test:fructose intolerance, PCOS, following a low FODMAP diet

Hi, I have been suffering from a burning tongue for 2 years. I am an 42 year old female. I was diagnosed through hydrogen breath test with fructose intolerance and I also have PCOS , could either of these be the cause? I have had full blood work done and the results were all good. I have been following a low FODMAP diet but the burning comes and goes still.

Welcome to HCM.
Based on the information provided the cause for the burning tongue is most likely to be due to Vitamin deficiency.

Neither Fructose intolerance nor PCOS cause such symptoms.

You have never mentioned whether you had any ulcers on tongue.
Deficinecy of Riboflavin, Zinc and Vitamin B12 often presents with similar complaints. So, taking multivitamin capsules containing these vitamins and minerals will relieve your problem.

Hop you got the solution you were looking for.

Wish you a speedy recovery.
Take Care
