Re: tingling after root canal
Update almost 4 months on from the root canal operation .
After a few weeks the backache and sundry cramps did improve. But it was then replaced by sensitive (hot) skin across most of my body at one time or another. This is phantom pain generated by the brain as I suspect the muscle pain is too. Now I've got tinnitus too.
So at the moment I'm left with teeth aches, muscular cramps and sensitive skin taking it in turns. The dentist and doctor have said it's anatomically impossible for the dental work to have triggered such a collapse in my nervous system, but it obviously did and I wrote it down to remind myself.
This post really isn't a question, because judging from my reading of this forum it's a one in a million occurrence that other folk and dentists haven't come across. Just a reminder to readers to consider operations carefully.
I bitterly regret not deferring a decision on the root canal operation until I was sure that the infection in my front incisor really was going to be recurring as the dentist said. At the time of the operation my teeth felt hunky dory.
My last hope of recovering my health is having the tooth extracted. A more natural event might lead to my brain becoming unconfused. I'm just guessing of course and only give it a 5% chance but hell what have I got to lose.
Anyway that's how it is.
