    I also have pain in my teeth. Sometimes it's serveral teeth sometimes it's just one tooth. What's your take on this one?

    I get pain in my teeth from time to time, usually when I'm in a flare or going into one. I know that I clench my teeth a lot. I think they call it bruxism.

    I have no cavities, so I attribute it to some strange muscle in the facial area thats inflamed. It could come from TMJ which affects teh jaw area. Many fibro people have this condition also.

    My pain meds seem to handle it.

    All the best,

    You're not alone, hasbeen!

    I get throbbing pain in my teeth, or a tooth, or my gums, whenever I get sinusitis or a sinus infection. It's all part of the miserable package.

    My teeth hurt because I grind them while I sleep, even though I wear a nightguard.

    When I get a really bad migraine my front teeth even hurt.

    I have had such intense pain that my teeth have hurt.

    The flare up that I am currently going thru right now (although today is one of the better days) I have had many days with teeth pain.

    As a matter of fact I even told my mother that the other day.

    I go to see my rheumy on the 13th...maybe Ill run it by him and see what he has to say about it.

    Hugs to all,
    Steph

    In Feb 06 and feb 07 i had bruxing problems at night while on the computer. a seasonal stress reliever i guess.

    Also have teeth or gum pain when i get hungry and blood sugar drops. why hypoglycemia would cause this is beyond me.

    That sounds like it was very painful! I too have had extremely painful teeth, specifically, molars on the top and the teeth right next to them. I always thought it was sinus infections, as did my doctors until I saw a specialist, Endodontist/something else in Boston, MA. My ENT sent me to him thinking I had myofacial pain from the fibro but it ended up being some rare oral cavity neurological disease, Atypical Odentalgia. He started me on Amatriptyline(sp?) and it has improved, not 100% but I can bare it. He told me that many dentists just do root canals on patients, thinking that is their problem and it is not. I have to have 2 root canals, legit ones, and I just found an endodontist who will actually put me to sleep for the procedures. With this rare disease, the nerves in your teeth are amplified times 1000 so if they had to dig around in there, regular novicaine(sp) would not really do the trick. I am sooooooooooooo not looking forward to this but it would be so much worse if I had to be awake. I am a dentalphobic and would rather do anything else other than that.

    I'm wondering which teeth are you having trouble with. I just posted to someone else on this subject. If it is not your upper molars, disregard my suggestion. If it is, look up Atypical Odentalgia and read about it.
