Can a tooth infection make you tired

Common Questions and Answers about Can a tooth infection make you tired


Avatar f tn An infected tooth can spread through underlying tissue and kill you. A friend of mine got necrotising fasciitis because of a bad tooth; the hospital had to put him in an induced coma for over a month to save his life. He was lucky; the "flesh-eater" bacteria did not spread as rapidly as in most cases so he lost very little flesh.
Avatar f tn Lots of people won't post to a thread started a year ago. If you repost, and please do, can you advise if you have seen a doctor or dentist which is the first thing to do since we can't diagnose you on this board?
Avatar f tn Go to the dentist! It is recommended to go to the dentist more during pregnancy.
Avatar f tn There are plenty of natural antibiotics and things you can do to heal a tooth infection. I have healed several of mine without an antibiotic so when my niggly toothache turned into a major sore pain in the *** a few days ago, I got out the oregano, cloves etc etc. However, what I didn't realise is that a wisdom tooth infection can act very differently . . .
Avatar f tn Throat doctor (is it a sinus issue?) OR should I go to a dentist (is it a tooth infection issue). I am tired of having the maxillary sinus get stopped up and blocked....tired of the awkward 'sensitive extra tissue' that randomly drains in my upper interior lip.....(and I promise you can not see it looking at me, it's not some major abnormal growth or anything that is visible).
Avatar n tn This can happen had usually has no long term effects,but can make you feel like you had and electric shock. Not sure about the swelling. If the filling was big enough it could have fractured your tooth easily and nothing the dentist could have prevented or caused. He could have done a crown,but like most dentist he probably tried to do something of more cost effectiveness first. Good luck!
Avatar n tn I do not think the tongue symtoms are serious. If you have a chronic infection from the wisdom tooth it can cause a general malaise. I strongly suggest that you see an oral surgeon asap and let the doctor take out the wisdom or wisdom teeth.The wisdom teeth can do damage to the bone and the adjacent teeth without the patient being aware of anything.
Avatar n tn These type of paresthesia can last up to 2 months or longer. 2) Sinus infection 3) infection of the extraction site or bone I would recommend you have a follow up check with your dentist or oral surgeon.
173975 tn?1216261375 there really isn't much you can do about a broken toe...i've smashed them up can take a long time to your foot all black and blue?? if you had iced it right away that would have helped..even if it is broken i wouldn't rush out through a snow storm ..wait till thats over...and just think the catskills have the most beautifull springs..and the winters aren't very long...good luck wyn......
Avatar n tn She showed me a small dark area on the side of the root filling in the problem tooth that could possibly be an infection so I got a referral to the endodontist who I will see next week. I have no idea if the symptoms are related but there is also a periodontist in the same dental group as the endodontist so I am hoping they can consult and get me an answer.
Avatar n tn org/user_journals/show/2322 The Flip-Turn Sinus Flush is mildly risky, because you have to bend over to do it, preferably in a shower, but you can also do it outside on soft ground, or you can kneel down and lean over a bathtub with the shower running. As Londres says, you should see an ENT to make sure you don't have a physical anomaly that is causing the chronics.
242516 tn?1368227505 Viruses can even cause colored mucous, that thick discharge you can't see through, which many people believe only can come from a bacterial infection. Colds can even cause pressure in sinuses, when viruses affect the sinuses . Antibiotics don't help in these viral infections. Treatments aimed at reducing symptoms can help.
Avatar f tn I went to the doctor two times and they said I have acid reflux. Can this make you feel really sick for a long period of time?? I can't even sleep since I constantly wake up at night. I'm not even hungry and my stomach makes weird noises. Doctors did a ct scan and blood test and they said there is nothing wrong. I've asked to see a gastroenterology but the appointment is three months from now. I can't take this anymore I'm missing hours from work.
Avatar m tn If you have a wound or urinary tract infection I would wait until it clears up at least a few days to have sex. It isn't really an STD but since you have a bacterial infection it could get transmitted to your partner. But most women have some degree of these organism in their vagina too and so it may not be a problem. It is just that the numbers of organisms may be higher than usual so it could cause a problem. Also, if you have a wound it may irritate the area.
Avatar n tn You need to see why this staph inf is not going away. Maybe its a polyp inside the nose that cannot be seen and once removed, can make a big difference. Viruses and bacteria sit anywhere unfortunately. Let me know if this helps.
Avatar n tn My dentist recommended surgical extraction of the tooth and getting a new partial with an extra tooth to replace the extracted molar. A tooth implant is a second option. At this stage I need to do something as the physical tiredness and constant irritation need to go. My options are 1) more antibiotics (probably a waste of time ?) 2) Tooth extraction 3) Tooth Implant My questions (fianally !) are; Which method is the best choice?
Avatar n tn If by chance you are diagnosised with Sphincter of Oddi Dysfunction, you will have to make a life style change when it comes to food and stress. Believe me, I have done some house cleaning when it comes to stress and I feel much better for it. Everyone else is miffed but that is their problem. LOL!!!!!!! Let us know how you are doing.
Avatar n tn but a word of advice is TO CLEAN YOUR TUB before you decide to take one of these baths bc you dont want to be sitting in a tub full of dirt. ****** THIS HELPED A LOT!!!**********if you have a table fan then you can deff use that to help the burning sensation of a yeast infection. set the table fan...or really any type of fan on the highest speed. take off any bottoms that you have on(undies or pants....take every thing off of your lower so the vagina is exposed to the fan).
535089 tn?1400677119 The body eliminates some melanin in a dark person's urine sample. Passive marijuana inhalation. If you attend a rock concert or ride in a car where marijuana is smoked nearby, even if you do not partake, the second hand marijuana that you might inhale may give your test a positive result for several days.
Avatar n tn Try this on every tooth in the area that is hurting. See if any of them cause pain. Sometimes a crack in a tooth can be very hard to detect. Let me know what you think. I would be glad to give any help.
Avatar n tn I have a yeast infection and i want to get rid of there anything i can take that can make this go away now...and can you catch a yeast infection if you performed oral sex on someone who have a yeast infection? Please help me out here im a lil confused about this.
Avatar n tn Try drinking green tea 2 times daily for atleast 1 month. Also, get vitamins A,B,C... make sure when you purchase Vitamin A that it is from fish liver oil... and only fish liver oil... Anything else may cause a reaction with the infection. these will detox your system and make your immune system become more efficient. If anything the antibiotics are not reacting anymore cause the virus has learned to cope with them... Anti biotics are good temporary fixes...
Avatar n tn I wasn't trying to imply that it was anxiety. Just that the nurse at that link apparently said some symptoms of sinus problems could seem like anxiety, so maybe that's why it's so easy for doctors to dismiss it as anxiety? I dunno, was just putting that out there. My next step is to try some herbal stuff (garlic pills helped me the last time) and see what happens. If anything changes I'll post. Hope everyone is feeling better.
685562 tn?1447158831 First~ All my main symptoms started last fall Mt wife and Kids went to New Hampshire for a week for her Grandpas Funeral, I had to stay home because we had no one to watch the house, and animals. Well I was doing pretty good, remodeling some things..and cleaning up the place. When she got back...about a week later I started to get a weird Vibrating sensation.
Avatar f tn And left untreated, it can fester and create a bunch of problems. Another thing is you may have a bad tooth on that side of your head, it can also hurt just like an earache, so a visit to the dentist for a checkup will rule out that possibility. And that also should be taken care of right away, because tooth infection can turn into an abscess and make you really sick. There is a very remote possibility that it could be something a cardiologist needs to investigate...
611365 tn?1225994623 Hi I am just over a week after an an emergency extraction for an infection under a tooth with a crown. After 24 hours it all went downhill. The pai has been utterly awful ... been taking ibrufen and paracetemol but get breakthrough pain regularly. Dentist wont prescribe an alternative. Started on an antibio which made me sic, tranferred to amoxcyllin and the five days are almost up. Everything is ulcerated.
Avatar f tn I had a 2 fillings performed on an upper tooth on about a little over a month ago. Before I went in for the filling, I'd been having terrible tooth pain and had developed an abscess on the gum above that tooth. At the same time, I was experiencing a pressure/pulling sensation down my jaw, around my ear and down my neck. I was first given a round of antibiotics, and the pain, abscess and pressure/pulling sensation all went away.
