Has anyone else had an issue with the above? I have Graves and possible hashis. Was underactive when last tested and am on just 25mcg levo.
The inflammation however started in June/July with some redness around my front right hand tooth. At this point I felt very well and assume my thyroid levels were good as they had been slightly high and the two week period of wellness was just after starting on carbi. It was during this two weeks I first noticed some slight redness. Assumed it was a bit of gingivitis so brushed and flossed more and used gengigel.
In November, it started feeling very sore. Saw a hygienist who confirmed no sign of gum disease at all. She thought it was trauma so I was careful with it for a few weeks. Despite this it became incredibly sore and spread along gums. Sometimes tongue and inside of mouth would feel sore, stingy or burning but it’s mainly the area around my front tooth. Gums looks red and sometimes swollen (not everywhere in certain places). Sometimes my front teeth hurt and feel slightly numb and “click” about.
At the moment my mouth is sore generally and it hurts around the offending tooth and that tooth also is sore and feels a bit numb. But it changes all the time.
Prior to the redness starting in June for a long time (few years) I would periodically get a generally sore mouth. Gengigel would help soothe this and it wasn’t particularly troublesome.
Had emergency dentist appt on Xmas eve as it got extremely sore again the day before and she said change toothpaste and use corsodyl gel. Did this and it did not change although corsodyl soothes it temporarily. Have tried two diff toothpastes and using no toothpaste for a week or so and nothing. She said come back if it didn’t work and they will refer me in case I have lesions that she can’t see? Whatever that means?
Went back to dentist yesterday and saw a different dentist thinks who thinks it might be burning mouth syndrome or “general inflammation” and recommended a herbalist (although she is a homeopathic dentist do not sure how much I buy in to the latter explanation). My CRP is always within range. She did X-rays which were clear. She has referred me on my request as I want to be sure before accepting this is yet another thing I have to live with.
I have sebhorrheic eczema on my scalp and vaginally and pompholyx eczema on my hands.
Anyone have anything like this or any clue what it might be? Has anyone tried anything that has helped?
I’ve just had some vitamin levels tested which I intended to post about separately. My ferritin is still on the low side and my zinc is sub-optimal (from what I have been able to gather online) but in range. I can post all the results if that might shed any light.
