Wisdom teeth

I’ve noticed a lot of GPN sufferers with removed wisdom teeth(me for one)

I’ve still got all mine! I wasn’t aware of a connection. :slight_smile: xxx

Thank you Grace, To be clear, the connection is all mine, sifting through personal accounts of factors.

YES I HAD MY WISDOM TEETH OUT ABOUT THE SAME TIME I WOULD SAY I HAD THE BEGINNING SIGNS OF TOUNGE AND THROAT PAIN

I HAVE GIVEN THAT A THOUGHT SEVERAL TIMES

Hm, I had my wisdom teeth out 20 years ago but my GN started 3 years ago, I wonder if there is any connection…that’s kinda interesting.

Yes, but mine were removed 20 years ago. It left me with parasthesia on the right side of my tongue, which, oddly, is the side I am having problems with. Go figure! Take care!

I also had paresis on my left side and that's where I'm having trouble also..weird connection but I think there is a connection for sure!!!

I’ve been told that nay kind of dental work that affects nerves can lead to different nerves being damaged, causing pain. I had a root canal, getting over 20 numbing injections. Has anyone ever had a shot in the gum area that made you react immediately from the pain, knowing that the dentist hit a nerve, or you had more than 1 injection to become numb before dental work? If the injection can cause nerve damage, then any extraction I would think could also. I woke up from a hysterectomy with this sever pain in left ear and throat, and it has been there ever since, even though less than a year before that I had the root canal resulting in the extraction of the tooth in the end. So, don’t think they really know, should would be nice though.

Hi Kim...

Thanks for this post and the other post on the other topic this morning! Very informative!!

My wisdom teeth were taken out 20 years ago, which left me with numbness on the side that I am having problems with, down the right side of my tongue and the lower gum. So who knows if there is a correlation? I found it odd hearing that after a hysterctomy you ended up with the pain. Maybe there is some type of anesthesia correlation somehow???? Bizarre.

I thought I was having a mild remission over the last two weeks, but I am feeling it a bit today; although I have not had to take any meds for it for 14 days! Yaaaay! My doc did put me on the antidepressant Pristiq, which has considerably lifted my mood and maybe I am just not dwelling on it so much last week and the week before.

I also have bruxism (teeth grinding at night) and I must have been grinding a lot last night because I feel it today right under my right earlobe, in that crevice where the neck and the jaw meets.....and a little down my neck and right shoulder. My internist thinks it might be related to a TMJ type thing. Who knows? I just want it to GO AWAY!!!!

Thanks again for your posts!

Cheers, Kara

I work for an oral surgeon and havn’t heard that…however we have seen patients end up with Trigeminal Neuralgia…we have sent patients to u of m for help/specialist.

Jennifer. Are u speaking of u of m in Michigan? I’m just curious cuz I grew up in Michigan and that is an awesome hospital!!! I was a paramedic in that area.

I had mine removed way before I got GN.

Well Kara, I too ended up in one of my many tries to red this pain trying a mouth guard at night for sleeping.My dentist told me to try this for awhile to see if that help, so I had a guard fitted for about 500.00 and wore it for several months, but the pain never got better. Also with this pain it can fool you into thinking that it is totally gone, then resurface for no reason. It can be gone one day, one week, two months, but usually begins with a pattern, of off again, on again. That’s different than TMJ. My Ear Nose and Throat dude thought it was TMJ telling me to go to my dentist then visa vera? This kind

pain is a burning pain, it feels very hot, like that freezing feeling when holding ice on one area for too long. It isn't an achy feeling or soreness, more like a horrible sunburn deep in the throat and ear. One word to describe it would be "hot", or "fire". Sometimes getting in a hot tub of water for some reason really helps. If you get the pain back, and it so bad, try getting down in very warm water for a little while, then let me know if this helps. I'd be interested in seeing if this helps with anyone else with this pain. I've heard a couple of others say this helps. Hope you and all on this blog are doing well, this is a terrible type of pain. Having my faith is something that's kept me going!
Take Care-Kim
