Can tooth problems cause swollen glands

Common Questions and Answers about Can tooth problems cause swollen glands


Avatar n tn About eight months ago I got 15 amalgams removed and one rotten root canal tooth extracted. Now I have swollen lymph nodes just below my right ear and constant pain in the back of my neck that feels more like swollen glands than any thing else. I just had my hearing tested and it is fantastic. Does anyone have any ideas for me?
Avatar n tn Immune or autoimmune disorders that can cause swollen lymph nodes include rheumatoid arthritis and HIV. Cancers that can cause swollen glands include leukemia, Hodgkin's disease, or non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Which lymph nodes are swollen depends on the type of problem and the body parts involved. Identifying the location can help determine the possible cause. Swollen lymph nodes may also be caused by some medications (like phenytoin for seizures) or certain vaccinations (namely, typhoid).
Avatar n tn I would think that if I had cancer or something HIV wouldnt my bloodwork been adnormal somehere??? I did read that glands can stay swollen for a long time after a infection or injury.. I am sure you are fine. About 18 years ago I had the gland in my groin and in my armoit swollen for 8 months and I am still alive.. I never went to the doc I was too scared and no insurance. So hopefully that will help you, though I keep telling myself the same thing.
Avatar f tn If your chin is swollen then it's possible that a bottom tooth is indeed in need of help. Did the doctor check your glands? Swollen lymph glands can cause all those symptoms.
Avatar n tn Another more likely scenario is that the abscess will escape the jaw bone and spread to the soft tissue of the head which is extremely dangerous. It can spread down the neck and cause breathing problems or spread to the spaces near the brain. 2) I'm not familiar with your financials but you may want to contact your local dental society and see if there are any resources available for your situation.
Avatar n tn 21 year old male, never had any problems until glands are swollen only on the right side of my neck....throughout the day, they become enlarged, but then they will go back to keeps flip flopping back and forth..sometimes when they are enlarged i can see my neck pulsing....i have not been sick and the swollen glands do not give me any pain..i have no other symptoms....i got checked for strep throat but that came back negative...
Avatar f tn My husband and friends try, but they really don't understand how I can still feel so bad after all this time. Or how I can possibly still be having so much pain from swollen glands in my neck after so much medicine and time. Seems to stump my doctor too!! And I'm not sure, but I don't think that's a good sign when you stump the doctor!
Avatar n tn You need to go to your dentist asap to get your tooth taken care of or it will get worse and can cause you more problems. We all have to do things we don't necessarily like in order to be healthy, but you just have to get it over with. It's most like swollen lymph nodes because the rotting tooth is causing an infection and your lymphatic system is working overtime to try to keep you healthy. Make an appointment with your dentist to get your tooth taken care of.
Avatar m tn I will be more specific. My submental glands are swollen and my submandibular gland is swollen. Under my jaw there is like a knot that has been there for 2 months. I am seeing an ENT next Tuesday. But what could i really have if all blood was fine?
Avatar n tn If the vet cannot find any obvious reason for the swollen glands, they will run a blood test to see if there'sany other cause. They don't do that during an ordinary annual health check usually.
Avatar m tn Too much stress can cause swollen glands and swollen tongue, which I have. Every doc so far thinks its no big deal. Please don't drive yourself nuts. I now have abdominal pain and its scaring the hell out of me but I refuse to let it get to me. I have pain under my belly and right above my crotch. Sometimes it feels like its my testicles until I feel around there and notice that there is really no tender spot. Some type of virus is going around.
14776903 tn?1437687992 I also have a wisdom tooth which is still growing and might get infected at times. It is actually located on the same same side where the swollen glands appeared. INFECTIOUS MONONUCLEOSIS: I think it was easier for me to endure the spinal fusion surgery which took me 4 months to recover rather than infectious mononucleosis. In 2011, I had a lump on the left side of my neck that was as big as a golf ball. I still remember my GP's face when she saw it!
Avatar n tn You should get tested for mercury toxicity. It can cause a lot of these types of problems. I posted a reply to this thread back in November. I was as sick as others and had all the tests and scans, but nothing showed up. I was lost for a long time (and in a lot of pain), but 3 months ago I had a urine test for mercury and it came back high. It is hard to find an MD to do this though, as most will tell you its not a problem.
163305 tn?1333672171 right now my glands are a little swollen on either side of my jaw. has been for 2 days. chalked up to just another thing....
Avatar n tn The scariest part is the gland on the left side of my neck is enlarged and I am frightened that I could have cancer. It isn't huge and it isn't tender but my neck is sore. No other swollen glands that I can feel. My question is if I do have some sort of an infection wouldn't the Penicillin before the oral surgery have cleared it up? Or the Zpak before that? Is there some sort of ear problem that could cause pain down my neck with a swollen gland?
Avatar n tn Penicillan and cephalexin can cause that, even delayed. It takes months sometimes to get it out of your system.
Avatar f tn in the front tooth and I'm not sure now if its getting ready to fall out or what cause my front tooth is like a gray color now and very little feeling in it what should I do cause I can't afford a dentist right now?!
Avatar n tn After asking around, I found out they were swollen lymph nodes. They have been swollen since. And since then, I've had swollen glands around my collarbone, in and around my armpits, and around my groin. Its on both sides of my body, and some of the nodes are quite large. Anytime I notice a new one, its because its quite tender to the touch, and sometimes even general movement (especially in the armpit).
Avatar n tn I was doing some research on this Hyoid Bone, and when you have problems with the acid reflux, it can cause a lot of problems in your throat, which I'm sure you are familar with, and the acid reflux can actually cause tumors in the throat, and they can become cancerous. I try not to take a lot of the information to heart until I get the facts, but I can't help but notice many of the symptoms they list for this cancer and tumors I have or have had.
Avatar n tn Lymph Nodes I thought and since I had a cold didn't think much of it. I am now experiencing swollen glands all over my body, it started out on just the left side, except for the neck. (this is the side that I had the gland removed from) Now I am feeling lumps all over that seem to burn and are symmetrically dispursed throughout the body. I have been on antivirals, Pennicillin V for 4 weeks, Augmentin for 20 days, Singular, and Clairnex D.
Avatar f tn I disagree that it is a mold. Shingles can cause swollen lymph nodes in various parts of the body including the groin.
Avatar f tn I also have GERD and take Prevacid but someone told me that the stomach acid can also cause intestinal issues. Unfortunately, quitting my job or taking time off is not an issue right now, but I will be taking a few days off in June as my first grand child ( a girl....Yeah) is due on the 12th. My students are taking off the last 2 weeks of June. Thanks again.
Avatar m tn Hi there. I hope someone can give me some advice. I've had horrible swollen neck for 3 months now. I don't have a sore throat or ear aches. I'm not losing any weight. I've been to the doctors multiply times. I've had many blood tests for mono, viral infections etc...all normal. I've had an ultra sound on my thyroid gland...normal (I have a family history of Thyroid cancer). I'm having another ultra sound on my whole neck in a week. I've taken antibiotics...
Avatar n tn my body has gone through everything from sharp pains and muscle spasms all over my body, peeing blood, swollen and painful glands, kidney stones, irregular heartbeat, vision problems and skin's like a never ending twilight zone movie. I'm getting stronger, but still suffer from some fatigue, but last month I played 4 games of basketball for the first time in 2 years and have started riding again, only about 10-12 miles...
Avatar f tn I thought it was apart of my clitoris but found out I can remove them, it's like a build up of some sort? It's like my glands aren't working properly or something and it's causing build up under my hood?!?! However, if I remove these little white spots, my clitoris swells and becomes sensitive for days before I feel better.
Avatar n tn I just got out of the hospital for the same thing... Mine was a serious staph infection in my nose.... This is nothing to play with it is serious you need to go see your doctor right away...
Avatar n tn Whats even worse is girls assume you're some oversexed guy, and you flirt with them, and its all a joke, cause I'd rather jerk off to porn than have sex with them. That *****, cause I know girls can take that personally, like they're not attractive enough, but mostly its cause I'm too stressed out/terrified, and now I'm also thinking its the whole porn thing. And I think it is. I went on a 2 week trip to a foreign country where I had no privacy, and I was horny as hell.
Avatar f tn could be severe allergies, scarlet fever, lyme disease, TB, tonsilitis, an abscess...or he could just have swollen glands.
Avatar n tn Hi Everyone. This is my first post. I started having problems about 5 years ago. It was occasional problems such as mild sinus pain/pressure and headache with mild eye strain. Each year it has gotten worse. Over the course of the past 5 years I have seen multiple doctors across different specialites: Ears, Nose & Throat, Neurologist, Allergist, and my Intern. I have had MRI's and CT scans. This year has been the worst so far. I have already gotten 2 sinus infections.
Avatar n tn They also would not be caused by Herpes 1 in people with no other apparent serious health problems like HIV. Bacterial Vaginosis and Yeast Infections may cause inflammation and small cracks in the folds of the skin, they do not cause cuts in center areas of the skin, and they heal without reoccurance once the infection is treated. An anal fissure can sometimes occur in the center area of the pernium (between the front and back) because of straining or constipation.
