A burning mouth or gums is kind of an umbrella diagnosis. It could be food allergies, or other conditions. It is recommended that you see an oral pathologist, as they can prescribe something to alleviate the discomfort.

If you have any open cuts, it could be from acidic foods. However, it could be something more serious like gingivitis or a bacterial infection. I'd recommend having a dentist check it out if the pain has persisted.

It sounds like an allergic reaction to something. Try keeping track of what you are eating for several days and when the feeling occurs to see if there is a pattern. It could also be a sensitivity to something else, such as your toothpaste or mouthwash. If all else fails, check with your doctor or dentist.
