I burnt the roof of my mouth eating something that was microwave hot. This happened on May 12, 2011 at 12:30pm. Now it s May 16, 2011 and it is very swollen and hurts pretty bad especially when I eat. The spot is on the left side of the roof of my mouth directly behind my teeth. I woke up on Saturday May 14, 2011 with a headeache, it started behind my right eye, then went to the back of left side of head and now it is down in my jaw line right next to my burn...and I still have this same headache. Was just wondering if burning the roof of my mouth could cause a headache, how long before the burn will heal and what I can do to subdue the pain?
