    Hi
    Does anyone have a problem with FM flaring after going to the dentist?
    I had a major cavity filled 2 weeks ago and it has sent me over the edge flare wise.

    Is this a normal thing with everyone? Thanks

    and had two old fillings replaced with the white, non-mercury stuff (what ever it's called :)

    The only problem I had was that by the time the dentist was done my jaw was in a major spasm. I was a bit afraid because in the past it would be a week before I could open my mouth wide enough to eat. But this time I was ok by the next morning, probably because I didn't talk for a few hours after the procedure and massaged my jaw all night.

    I have noticed that when I did have to have a root canal it caused me to flare terribly, so maybe the flare comes from the infection itself?

    Hopefully you're most of the way through this flare. I pray so....

    I have problems with this also. I can be sick for several days after dental work. I dread it.
