Brief Answer:
Probably mouth burning syndrome, more details are needed.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Your symptoms seem to be related to burning mouth syndrome.

There are many medical conditions that can cause this syndrome.

Nutritional deficiency is one of the common causes.

Other possible causes can be gastoresofageal reflux, medications, thyroid problems etc.

More details are needed to help me through the diagnosis.

Do you have any other medical conditions and are you taking any medication?

Do you frequently eat acidic or spicy foods?

Do you wear dentures?

Do you eat a healthy diet?

Meanwhile, I recommend to drink liquids and use mucolytic such as Mucinex.

I also recommend avoiding acid foods, smoking, alcohol, and stress.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
