What Is The Indication Of Burning Tongue,swollen Gums And Neck Pain?

Have you ever heard of burning tongue syndrome? My tongue has been burning for a couple of weeks, and this morning I woke up with swollen gums on the bottom, and in the back of my molar the gum area was a bump or blister of some sorts that went away. The burning is very uncomfortable, my doctor seems to think it is peri menopausal but researching, I read that would be for post menopausal. I also have neck pains, but that may be from keeping my head in one position studying. Appreciate any comments thank you Doris
