| | Question about Teeth/Gum Pain?
I was at the dentist in June and finished with the deep scaling and root planing..My gums are now fine, she said my teeth looked good etc...I have another appt. in Aug, as I am going to go every 3 mos now for cleanings to keep up on it...I am a dental phobic and very fearful of the dentist, but made myself go to the 5 appts needed for the deep cleaning...
Now last nite, I started feeling off and on, these electric shock type sensations in my bottom jaw..It seems like at least 3 teeth and my gum area too....Its not when chewing or biting, etc...It seems to come out of the blue..
I can't find anything about it on the dental boards...I had it last nite for awhile, then I was fine until just a little while ago..The only thing I could find close to my symptoms on the internet was trigeminal neuralgia...
Just wondering if anyone has had these symptoms and what it could be, or if they know anything about TN? I also have sinus and allergy problems, and my allergies are bad right now where I live with the high pollen count for grass, etc...Could that cause it? Im just worried I have some dental problem again and am going to need work done, which sends me into a panic!
Thanks so much
