Re: Major Dizzyness/nausea with an abscessed tooth
I'm glad your dizziness went away with the root canal. that's reassuring.
I was scheduled for 3 seesions stating next Monday for the root canal , but I've postponed until Thursday week. I keep reading that the infection may not go away with a root canal and the toxicity, and I'm at a loss..been reading for 3 days now:-) I do know the antibiotics work for me at present, been 2 weeks now, but apparently the tooth infection is not fixed(tooth and above it still hurts a little), so the bacteria keep breeding and maybe become resistant. i'd like to give IV antibiotics a go as i've read of a few people who got ride of their jaw infections only after 3 or 4 weeks of IV antibiotics..who knows it m,ight get rid of the ttoth ones too, but everyone and all sites seem to sday you cant cure a tooth infection with antibiotics.. only the rest of the body ? Ah well
I had a tooth oulled last time, about 4 years ago, and the pain finally went away the next year when i went on 5 wks doxycyllin for malarial prevention.
Let me know how your root canal goes.
Yes i found the dizziness, and nausea and blurriness and fullness betweenears as well as the pain and tinnitus rather scary.
I've been reading of deaths from these tooth abncesses.. they call them, but nothing showed in my mouth, no holes in teeth, perfectly healthy jaw etc.
