I don't know if this is bad luck or my immune system taking a kicking from RA meds. (I'm on injected MTX, humira and leflunomide.) It started with an infection in my tooth that spread to the root and gum. Prior to that, I had a few ulcers on my tongue that were sorer than my usual ulcers. They seem to have multiplied and now I have cuts on my gum, not just near the infected tooth but on the other side of my mouth too. I've been on the lovely antibiotic metronidazole (vomiting and diarrhea galore!) so I wonder if the sores and cuts are a result of that? I took my last antibiotic this morning but I'm not a great deal better, so I expect the infection is still lingering. I can't be seen by the dentist again until Thursday.
What can I do? Please help, I am so miserable.
