Nope no medications that would do it. I drink 3-4 big bottles of water daily. I have been breathing through my mouth though due to bad allergies. I haven't had the symptoms since I stopped smoking and drinking coffee, so I am assuming they were connected somehow.

Thank you for your response!

My answer to your question is, I have not experienced the pain you're talking about an neither have I heard any of my friends talk about having pain. Medications and yes if you were a heavy smoker, dryness can happen. Any heart medication or Decongestant can cause dryness.
Mouth breathing will also cause dryness. Our you drinking plenty of water? I would suggest though if those symptoms return check with your family physician. There are so many conditions an allergies that could be causing your problem.

After dealing with intense gum/roof of mouth/tongue pain last week, I finally went to an emergency dentist appointment on Friday. My dentist took a look around and couldn't find any physical reason why I would be in so much pain. I was barely eating, exhausted and just plain old miserable. She did mention that smoking could be causing my mouth to dry out on top of having a really bad allergy season.

See this isn't the first time this has happened to me. My tongue did it last year when I was living in a very small house full of animal fur and dust, every time I smoked my tongue got weird. When I moved it stopped. So I stopped worrying about it. But it popped up again a few weeks ago when the unusual hot weather and wind started. Then the pain started in last week.

I went home and just didn't smoke. The pain was horrible and I didn't want to keep experiencing it. Saturday my mouth was feeling much better and Sunday my pain was gone. I didn't drink caffeine either because when I quit I don't sleep well. All 3 nights I slept like a baby with only a few symptoms, stomach upset (only a little bit), night sweating and anxiety. I was feeling so strong up until the phone rang.

The phone is such a trigger for me. I get on it and automatically reach for the cigarettes. And since I had kept the remaining pack from Friday instead of throwing it away, I smoked, 2-3 cigarettes. My mouth instantly started hurting and hasn't stopped today. So it would appear that nicotine is the biggest culprit of this.

My question, has anyone else experienced this weird gum pain? How did you overcome certain triggers, like the phone? What do non smokers do when they chat on the phone?

Thank you for the support! I am back to not smoking again today. I DO NOT want this pain anymore!
