Avatar m tn Hi, I had crown done following the root canal treatment on 14th tooth 3 years ago due to a regular recurring abscess. After the root canal treatment and crown, i used to get abscess at exactly the same location every now and then but that time with no pain. A month ago the abscess recurred again after a long while, so i went to a dentist (a different this time since i have moved places). He suggested that the previous root canal was not done properly and that the crown had to be removed.
Avatar n tn I still need 2 crowns upper right, and one crown lower right with a few more cavities filled. My dentist says there is no signs of dental abscess, but I have been having a lot of bad symptoms that seem to be getting worse. I feel really ill all the time. All my teeth hurt, It comes, and goes for what seems like no reason at all. My face feels tight, and puffy sometimes. My eyes burn. I get headaches, and sensitivity to light.

Avatar f tn Unfortunately some of your symptoms such as a stiff neck are beyond the scope of a dentist. We don't treat that area of the body. The swollen lymph nodes could be due to a dental infection but as your dentist said, its been ruled out.
Avatar m tn Moreover, about a week and a half ago I had two large bumps on my neck (that resembled bug-bites) and a rash on my right shoulder. These have since subsided but I wonder if the rash is a symptom of herpes in relation to the mass in my pubic area. The rash and mass are likely unrelated but I am uncertain. There is no burning sensation when I urinate, and I always use a condom when I have sex.
Avatar n tn Hi, Thanks for the update. Symptoms of brain abscess may develop slowly, over a period of several weeks, or they may develop suddenly. The symptoms you mentioned such as changes in mental status - confusion, irritability, slow thought processes, decreased movement and speech, headache and language difficulties, and vision changes are consistent with brain abscess symptoms. Talk to his lawyer about his case and discuss the legal aspects of this.
Avatar f tn I've had a tooth abscess since the beginning of this year sometime. I went to the ER because my jaw had become so swollen that it was completely ridiculous. They gave me penicillin which I took (28 pills, 3 times a day with food). When I finished that bottle I realized that there was still a sort of blister on my gum even though it was much smaller than it used to be.
Avatar m tn I have had a smallish (maybe 2 cm in diameter) skin abscess or infected cyst on my back next to my cervical spine for the last 2 weeks which doesn't seem to be getting bigger or coming to a head (I tried squeezing it thinking it was a pimple at first.) When I touch it, it feels soft/puffy as though there's some fluid under it (same as a gum boil) and it's no longer hot/painful, just itchy sometimes.
Avatar n tn last week i developed an abcsess in my tooth. my cheek became very swollen. the doctor said the infection from the abscess had passed from my tooth into my cheek. they put me on keeflex. within 24 hours about 60% of the swelling in my cheek had subsided. i am now on day 6 of a 10 days worth of the keeflex.
Avatar m tn At first I thought nothing of it and thought it was just an enlarged node as I compared it to the other side and it is relatively biggerIt's been almost one year, and it has still remained there, no change in shape and size. I only looked up what the causes and symptoms are recently around march. Of course when you start looking at symptoms, you start "exhibiting" them.
Avatar f tn I recently about a month ago had a huge abcess on my neck lanced and drained they told me it was just a bacterial infection gave me antibiotics and stuffed it. I went back and have the stuffing removed kept it coverd and clean and it healed up now i have another small lump next to the spot where the other one was . i dont want to have to go back to the er since i have no ins. it is very costly any ideas any1?
Avatar f tn Has anyone out there ever had neck swelling between the neck and clavicle? Doc's say mine is not a mass, but don't know what it is.
Avatar f tn Hi, I'm a 21 year-old woman and I have over the past few days (I would say about a week? maybe) I have started to get some strange symptoms, that I've never had before. I have no previous conditions. About 3.5 weeks ago I woke up in the morning with a stabbing headache - I seriously thought someone had stabbed me in the head, there was just no blood. I was a little sensitive to light and mildly to sound.
Avatar f tn I had an vallecular abscess on my lingual tonsil drained 1/17 in an emergency procedure. they told me it was in a rare location and that my vocal chords were hemorraged in surgery, so that i would be sore a while. there were loculations in abscess. "the tonsils did show exudate tonsilitis biltaterally but no evidence of obvious abscess.
Avatar m tn I get rapid heart beats and scared of dying when my neck symptoms get worse. THe weakness in my neck also goes to my upper jaw and have the feeling that i cant move my mouth but can. I have no problems swallowing either. When i take my xanax i start calming down but my neck and mouth still bother me. Since the xanax calms me down i figure i do have panic attacks. I know what is causing them. It is me worring about my neck. I have gone to Dr. several times and they just tell me its stress.
Avatar f tn My left side of my neck is stiff for a week now, no pain I can move it no problem it feels strange I don't know how to explain, plus i have palpation,what it can be , it is very annoying
Avatar n tn I noticed my dogs face near her cheek is swollen and her neck on the same side is also swollen, its soft in her neck not hard. It wasnt a gradual growth i just notices it last night. Shes acting completly normal shell let me touch it. She does have bad teeth but my vet has never been able to check her mouth for as long as ive had her. I adopted her and she not very nice with other people (we have to muzzle her and sedate her prior to going to the vet). Any ideas of what could be causing this?
Avatar n tn She told the dentist and he looked it over and said it was fine. The next evening she was in extreme pain in her neck and jaw, it escalated so we took her to the ER. The ER doctor said possible TMJ, contact dentist. And he put her on vicodin for the pain. The dentist was called and said go to a TMJ specialist. TMJ specialists wouldn't see her for 3-4 weeks so we took her to a chiropractor instead for pain relief. It helped a bit. The next few weeks she had difficulty breathing.
Avatar m tn Welcome. Sorry your neck is hurting. We have different things in the front of our neck that can cause pain. The most common is muscle pain. There are both outer and inner muscles of the front of neck that can become strained. Poor posture or prolonged periods of holding the head in a certain position or even sleeping on it wrong could result in muscle strain. And obviously any type of traumatic event that leads to whiplash would cause muscle issues in the front of the neck.
Avatar m tn lately, for about the past two weeks, I have had a pain that is sharp in nature on the left side of my neck. Its not surface pain, but rather inside of the neck, closer to my esophagus than anything, but it feels very sharp. I have seen a chiro before about back/posture issues, but just wondering if anyone else has had this or not. Im 32 and in relatively good health.
Avatar n tn Hello, Over the past month i have been dealing with pain that moves from the right side of my teeth (top and bottom), to the front of my face, to the side of my head (ear and right above it), then to the back of my head and down my neck at times. I consulted a dentist and he assured me that my teeth looked fine and that i most likely have sensitive teeth. I began to brush with sensodyne and it seemed to help a bit. The pain comes and goes but has been pretty intense recently.
Avatar f tn Have just been diagonsed with GM with abscess after almost 6 mths. It actually started as Fibrodenomas in April 10'.. That settled down with Evening Primrose and Vit E.         In Sept 10' one day I got to see this horrifying looking lump above the areola which was tender, sore and dark in colour. I visited a General Surgeon after 8 days (thinking it would disappear on its on in between).
503418 tn?1231102336 i noticed by chance i have 3 small hard round lumps on my neck. one abv adams apple and one on the left and on the right above adams apple. they are painless unless i pock at them too much and cannot be felt if i tilt my neck backwards. i am getting rather worried its been about 2 weeks i first noticed the first. last week i finished a course of antibiotics for an upper respitory tract infection , could that have anything to do with them?
Avatar m tn Hello everyone. About 8 months ago I first found a small hard lump in my neck under my jaw. I can't see it through my skin I can just feel it. I didn't think anything of it until about 2 months ago when I randomly was feeling my neck and felt that same lump again. Now due to my hypochondria, I am obsessed with this lump. It hasn't grown, at least not to my knowledge, since first finding it 8 months ago. I have been to two doctors within the past 2 months to ask them about it.
Avatar m tn I have had sore, swollen glands in my neck for over 3 weeks. My Dr. agreed they were swollen but ruled out lymphoma as I had had some blood tests but they were done before I had these symptoms. I don't feel it would be lymphoma, but I thought maybe some kind of virus as I am running a low grade fever from 99.3 to 100.3. My "normal" is usually 97. I was taking an antibiotic (Bactrim) for an abscess I had on my buttock caused by a bee sting probably. Another Dr.
Avatar m tn Hi, stiff neck, headaches and painful neck movements could be due to throat infection, tonsillitis, thyroid inflammation, and a tooth abscess. Sometimes problems in the cervical (neck) spinal cord like a herniated disc could be possible causes. As your symptoms are persisting, discuss this with your doctor, he may then refer you to a neurologist for an objective assessment of the pain. An MRI of the spinal cord and brain may also help to arrive at a diagnosis. Regards.
Avatar m tn Hello, From the symptoms it sounds like boils or abscess. Boils are caused by infection of the hair follicle by staph aureus. . Hair follicles that are blocked by greasy creams, petroleum jelly, or similar products are more vulnerable to infection. Keep the area clean and apply warm compresses and some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. Avoid any kind of cosmetics.
Avatar n tn When I was pregnant with my son in 2007 I noticed a lump on the side of my neck (its right under my jaw line and isn't noticable by sight). I asked my OB about it and she said it was perfecty normal during pregnancy and didn't even check it out. Well I still have the lump and my son is now 19 months old. It doesn't seem to be getting bigger and isn't painful.
