Sore mouth

I am suffering from a constantly sore tongue and palate and I always have a peppery like taste in my mouth.
I take an Intensive Probiotic daily and even tried taking a course of
Diflucan because I thought that it might be oral thrush.
I have tried cutting out milk thinking that I was perhaps lactose intolerent,I take very little sugar and seldom have bread rather opting for Ryvita but still it persists.
I regularly floss my teeth and even tried changing my toothpaste but to no avail...........

Hi there

I have a bloated stomach and my fart really smells terrible. My mouth is constantly dry no matter how much water I drink. My stomach has not been regular for the past three weeks and I hae mild headaches to go with this. The funny thing is that I do feel hungry and eat normally.

Last week I went to the doctor(GP) but he could not say what was wrong? What could this be?
