I recently had to have my top teeth removed, not only did my gums hurt but it effected my entire body. Has anyone one else experience having something done and have it bother your whole body.
Fybro amplifies everything, just a filling of a cracked tooth set me into major flare and pain ugh
Yes, dentists cause me difficulties. I get that anxious and stressed it causes my heart to go do lally. .... and not just in the chair! Twice i have ended up in a and e with a faster than normal heartrate that had to be monitored. Plus the stress then triggers aches and paibs etc. I suppose im so bad as i had a fear of dentists to start with ... before the fibro. X
Teeth, teeth, teeth are the story of my life!
Besides fibromyalgia I have Sjogren's Syndrome - often associated with fibromyalgia. As a result I have no tears and no saliva. No saliva means no dentures as they would fall out. So, I have had 7 implants all the rest of my teeth are bridged or capped. I have had various operations over the past 50 years, too numerous to mention. The latest was for a cyst to be removed and part of the lower jaw due to infection. 99% of the time I suffer and have taken so many pain pills I have had inflammation of the stomache. My jaw joints pain for months afterwards, my gums pain and then just all my teeth pain. Some implants which took very well pained for a year afterwards. My doctor says it is phantom pains!!!!! I am so desperate that I am now at a new dentist. He says my last dentist did a lot wrong so am having my bite fixed next week but lower mouth still sore where cyst removed. Still have some money in medical aid for this year so must have it done.
Yes, my fibromyalgia flairs up as a result of all the work.
I had gastric bypass surgery 8 years ago and although I had some issues that were probably fibro related... the surgery sent the issues into hyper drive and 4 years ago I was diagnosed. I do not think it was coincidental.
You could have had muscle spasms form the procedures. When I was in my early 20's I had my wisdom teeth removed. This procedure was done in the hospital those years under general anesthetic but as an out patient. I went home that afternoon and was doing good but went to bed and awoke in the middle of the night and could not move my neck or get out of bed. My entire body was hurting from head to toe. I was in so much pain I cried out and my Mom who was staying with me at the time came in and had to help me out of bed. I called the dentist the next morning and he said I likely had muscle spasms when I had my procedure. It was hell for over a week. Every muscle in my body was in agony and my neck did not turn for two weeks.
