Abstract
Quantitative research has found that patients with Burning Mouth Syndrome (BMS) report a lower quality of life than those of a healthy population. However, qualitative studies in this area have been sparse. This qualitative study aims to understand the experience of living with BMS. Four female adults who were diagnosed with BMS were interviewed, using a semi-structured interview guide. From an interpretative phenomenological analysis four master themes were identified: The doubting self, the hidden self, BMS as an intrusion and diagnosis as a turning point. Through the process of diagnosis, treatment and management of the condition appear to reclaim the true identity and sense of ‘self ’. The ‘self ’ is changed from being independent, dynamic and autonomous from a fragmented ‘self ’, devoid of the attributes of the former self.
