as per condition explained by you, it seems you are suffering from severe pyorrhea. ( a gum disease in which your gums recede, there is loss of teeth,bad breath,burning in mouth and may be bleeding gums.) It is a time to see a specialist i.e. periodontist, if you want to save rest of your teeth. for symptomatic relief try this
1. warm saline rinses four times a day
2. start using some on the counter available gum paint

Dentist Dr. Gunjan Gupta's  Response
Thanks for your query.
As you provided the detail,it seems that you have gum disease,as you said that this recession is very rapid since last six months,it is not a good sign.
The details provided by you are not sufficient you did not provide few details like-
1.Your age.
2.any medication.
3.medical disease.etc.....
There are few follo0wing possibilities-
1.periodontal disease.
2.poor oral hygiene.
3.hormonal changes.
5.oral habits like,grinding/clenching teeth.etc........
So i will suggest you please visit your dentist as soon as possible to rule out the diagnosis and take a proper treatment.
Nothing to get worried.
Take Care.
