Pain in the lower lip only, no pain in the gums, no other symtoms, just the burning pain. It get worse when I eat, but sometimes hurt a lot without eating. It is not herpes. The pain last for few months, then disapeer, and now is back again everyday. It is really painful and the ibuprofen don't help. The doctor gave me steroids and didn't work. Please help me

Welcome to health care magic
The symptom you have mentioned is rather unusual. The cases with lip pain in my experience usually have herpes simplex, or cheilitis ( fissuring or redness or swelling). You don't seem to have any symptom other than pain.
There is a rare syndrome called Satchmo syndrome associated with pain over lips, usually seen in people who play musical instrument( wind instruments). Are you a musician ?
Sometimes Vitamin B deficiencies and anemia can cause lip pain but usually is associated with some inflammation of the lip. Try taking Becosules everyday.
Hope this helped. If i could see a photo of your lip it would help. You can send it to
Take care
