I'm not sure if we have the same thing going on but... because of the celiac disease I have Iron Deficiency Anemia. This can cause sores in the corners of your mouth called chelitis (sp??) but you can also get these sores inside your mouth. I have them where-ever two areas meet... in the crease between my lip and gumline, around my inner gums, etc...
Are your spots sores or just spots and do they hurt when you eat foods like chocolate and salty chips??

Diagnosed by biopsy and Gluten-Free since March 2003. I have the noisiest stomach known to man. Seriously, how do I turn off this crazy thing??? Sounds like I've got an alien in there...

It sounds alot like thrush. However, thrush is a yeast so if you have tested negative then I would think it would be ruled out. I don't know...have you seen the doctor lately??

This also sounds like lichen planus. Are the white patches tender? Does toothpaste and spicy foods make your mouth burn?
