You should see your dentist or a dental specialist such as an oral and maxillofacial pathologist or oral and maxillofacial surgeon to examine the blisters and determine a precise diagnosis.
In the absence of the blisters, your description is similar to patients with burning mouth syndrome but I can't provide much more assistance from this side of a computer keyboard. Additional information about burning mouth syndrome will be attached for you to help understand this condition. Good luck!
