Worse than Bird Flu

Last time when bird flu was doing rounds of dining table conversations I thought that this was the worst thing that could happen to ruin my favorite activity but this time things have taken a downturn. I am suffering from something that even the doctor doesn't know. This is how the conversation went:

Me: Sir, I am not comfortable eating spicy food and cold drinks and similar stuff. I feel a burning sensation.
Doc: Stick your tongue out.
Doc: Umm. I don't see anything.
Me: What happened? I brush twice a day.
Doc: That has nothing to do with it. Since when are you facing this problem.
Me: About a week.
Doc: Can you eat boiled food?
Me: Yes.
Doc: Can you arrange for boiled food?
Me: Yes. We can get it in the mess.
Doc: Take these B Complex Capsules and come back to me after a week. Till then avoid spicy food, non-veg, cold drinks. Do you smoke?
Me: Sometimes.
Doc: How much?
Me: Two or three a day. (Its about a pack)
Doc: Stop that immediately. Do you drink?
Me: Yes but very rarely.
Doc: Do not drink till next week.
Me: :(

I am just sad.... real real sad. I can't think of anything worse than this right now. I don't know if I can kiss or not. Anyone willing to help me figure that out ;) ?
