Im new to the group and have had contact with NicTBA who has been great.
I wanted to ask if anyone found that the underlying cause of their T was a tooth abscess? The last few months have been bad with being on and off antibiotics. January/feb it was an ear infection with vertigo (this started as pain behind my left ear and mild deafness). March I got otitis media with effusion (think thats what a&e doc said)The pain was incredible and I was in a&e twice. All I wanted them to do is pop my ears.
My face is very puffy and I have continuous post nasal drip (which has been going on a while but has got worse). Also have neuralgic pain around left side of face (cheek, jaw, forehead and out to the ear).
I saw the dentist 2 weeks ago (i thought, you never know there might be something there) and my two upper back left teeth need work. 1 is probably a root canal or extraction. the other is a filling. She took an xray and said it looks infected and she will know more when they open it up. She gave me 7 days antibiotics. This helped the puffy face and I started to feel better but now its all back. Ive decided to get the tooth extracted today as I have had enough.
Has anyone else had a similar experience?
My T is somatic and changes from ear to ear very quickly. I've also had itching in the ear canal and a feeling of wanting to get something out of the ear. This is happening in both ears which is what is confusing me.
Thanks and sorry for the long post!
