Just thought I would share my outcome with nerve pain in my gums and teeth due to Vasculitis MPA.
For the past ten months I have been suffering pain in my gums and teeth, and attending my dentist to try and find an answer. He sorted all the minor problems to start with, and then started to look at any problems that may be causing the pain, by taking xrays of my teeth and gums, this did not show anything.
I told him about my Vaculitis MPA, and immediately he went and looked at a medical book. All he could find on the subject of Vasculitis was on Wegners. He said that he would sooner not carry on until I saw a specialist, so he refered me to the dental hospital in Glasgow.
I have went to see the dental consultant in Glasgow on the 8th November, and she knew straight away the problem was connected to the vasculitis. She recommended two medications that she thought would help. She has written to my specialist at the renal unit in Falkirk ( with a copy to my dentist ) so he could decide which medication would be suitable. He has decided on Gabapentin and has sent an up date of my medication to my doctor.
I start the medication today, and I will keep everyone informed on how I get on.
I had read a few months ago someone had written asking if anybody else had suffered nerve pain. Hope this helps others.
