I have had symptoms that have included and started with vertigo, dizziness, fullness in my right ear, TMJ, headaches (sometimes migraine in quality), light sensitivity, fatigue, worse when I wake up, tendinitis, neck and shoulder stiffness and these have been going on since August 2013. I had my third child about two months before these symptoms began. More recently I am experiencing visual disturbance, and almost like I have to strain to see clearly which is leading me to schedule an eye exam. I have had blood work done, an MRI, saw an ENT who thought it was TMJ, saw the TMJ specialist who got me a prosthetic (mouth guard), and did physical therapy for TMJ. Nothing has really changed the symptoms. I had started researching a few years ago connections between these symptoms and dental work. I had never had headaches prior to having a root canal done. I am wondering how many that are posting on here have had dental work done like a root canal? Apparently, there may be a connection with this being done and long term health problems, degenerative symptoms... I'm still trying to follow up on this lead. Also, I am a mental health professional, and at least in my case am not experiencing the anxiety symptoms but feel like it is normal to be experiencing depressed mood and anxious symptoms at times when experiencing chronic health problems that seemingly have no answers or treatment. It leads to bit of a feeling of hopelessness. Let's not give up hope though! I'm so thankful that there are so many who are willing to share what they are going through. It's can be so frustrating!!
