abscess

Avatar m tn I wanted to know if these symptoms were brain abscess symptoms. I am a bit of a hypacondriact and I always think the worst is happening when it's usually very normal issues. IE if i have slight chest pain, I will think I have heart issues. That sort of thing. I think maybe my anxiety is getting the better of me. Any help would be appreciated.
Avatar m tn I looked on webmd, and the symptoms seemed to be that of a dental abscess. Do you agree? Is there anything I can do besides seeing a dentist? I don't have dental coverage, and I can't really afford anything extra right now. Please advise.
Avatar n tn Dental Abscess SYMPTOMS: Swelling on whole right side of face/gums Extreme pain/tenderness along with pressure On JUNE 1st I went to the ER because I woke up that morning with slight swelling that I watched grow throughout the day. The Dr. prescribed me 500mg penicillin vk. I take one ever six hours. I've been doing that since 9:15pm JUNE 1st and I noticed only a slight change in my swelling and none in my pain. If anything It looked like the swelling just shifted.
Avatar f tn A tooth abscess is usually a complication of tooth decay. In a dental abscess, or tooth abscess there is accumulation of pus inside the teeth or gums. The abscess usually originates from a bacterial infection and is mostly caused by a dental infection. The common presenting complaints are severe toothache, breath odour, fever, pain when chewing, sensitivity to hot or cold, swelling of gums, swollen glands etc.
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 Hello Dear, Brain abscess usually occurs secondary to a focus of infection outside of the CNS Dental abscess, sinusitis, and middle ear infection are the most common causes of this disease.The infection may also be introduced through a skull fracture following a head trauma or surgical procedures. Brain abscess is usually associated with congenital heart disease in young children.
Avatar m tn My problem is today i saw little bit minor swollen in right side of neck , no type of pain i can feel. For your understanding i want to mention that i have dental cavity abscessed tooth and they maybe infected because there is hole in both side of teeth, from teenage 4-5 years never visited doctor. some times i also have same type swelling in my cheeks some time on one side and some time on both side without any type pain thats also from 4-5 years.
Avatar m tn Your descriptions don't suggest presence of infection, seeing an MD to rule out fibromyalgia, lupus erythematosus, and other systemic diseases is advised.
Avatar f tn I lost a filling a few years back. Food woud get caught between the two teeth so I avoided chewing on that side since that's the only time it really hurt. Over a year ago I noticed a lump in my jaw, under where the tooth was. But I never really had a toothache, maybe just a couple times and very short lived, like a couple hours. Is that "normal"? I had the tooth pulled yesterday. The dentist said that now that the tooth is gone, the lump will go away too.
Avatar m tn You have already been taking antibiotics but the symptoms have worsened so you may need draining of the abscess and using antibiotics to treat non-serious infections and for a prolonged period can make them less effective at treating more serious infections causing antibiotic resistance. Amoxicillin is drug of choice.Metrogyl can be used as an alternative drug. Discuss your concerns with your dentist. Do write to me again. Best luck and regards!
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 Thermal sensitivity and discomfortable biting are probably associated with occlusal interference. Occlusal adjustment can generally eliminate the symptoms. Gum abscess may result from periodontal or periapical infection. Seeing a periodontist to evaluate periodontal condition is advised.
Avatar f tn We thought 19 (the PFM) was causing the galvanic shock symptoms so it was removed. But the symptoms continued for two days (and 6 dental visits!) until 18 (the Zirconia) was removed and then the shock symptoms stopped immediately. I know this makes absolutely no sense. I've researched it extensively and cannot find another single case of galvanic shock with Zirconia. I realize it is usually the other way around. When the permanents were eventually seated, they were both PFMS.
Avatar n tn Hello, A clinical examination is necessary for confirming the exact cause of your symptoms. In a dental abscess, or tooth abscess there is accumulation of pus inside the teeth or gums. The abscess usually originates from a bacterial infection and is mostly caused by a dental infection. The common presenting complaints are severe toothache, breath odour, fever, pain when chewing, sensitivity to hot or cold, swelling of gums, swollen glands etc.
Avatar n tn A tooth abscess is a pocket of pus that's caused by a bacterial infection. The abscess can occur at different regions of the tooth for different reasons. A periapical (per-e-AP-ih-kul) abscess occurs at the tip of the root, whereas a periodontal (per-e-o-DON-tul) abscess occurs in the gums next to a tooth root. The information here refers specifically to periapical abscesses.
Avatar n tn Hi, With the symptoms you are having, you really can't afford not to see a dentist or at least someone in the medical profession. It's very possible that you had an abscess. Dental problems can most certainly lead to medical problems. I urge you to make an appt with a dentist and see if you can work out a payment plan. Dental health can be directly related to medical health and chest pains are nothing to fool around with. Make the appt or have it checked in your local ER. GOOD LUCK!
Avatar f tn 6) and the doctors ruled out strep and mono once again and put him on the same medication regimen. Could his symptoms possibly stem from a tooth abscess?? If not a tooth abscess what else do you think could be causing his symptoms? Thank you in advance for your response.
Avatar m tn I just found out today what it actually is and the descriptions online terrifies me! But I never had any symptoms of pain or any other symptoms except the sight that it is there. Am I gonna have to get the tooth pulled out?!!? Or root canal?!!??! or something worse?!??! I'm currently a college student and does not have dental insurance. what do i do? help i'm freaking out.
Avatar f tn Well, it seems like the dentist doesn't seem to think its a dental problem. Could you go back to your primary care physician and seek a second opinion from another specialist? 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 n tn Dear Friend, I have written a short story which I send to everyone who is looking for help with basic dental problems. Several paragraphs concern the source of dental problems, the rest details natural remedies for relief. I have had a number of experiences, from basic cavities, fillings, to replacement of metal fillings with epoxy, root canals, infections, extractions, and now contemplating implants.
Avatar n tn hi. i have poor dental hygene since my mid teens and its starting to take its tool on my social life, all this is because i have a bad phobia of dentists/needels. is there anyway around this? Thankyou.
Avatar f tn It sounds like what you said it is, a dental abscess. As gross as it is, its a good thing it draining out and leaking into the mouth. If the area closed up, the pus would have no where to escape to and it would cause a larger swelling and could push into other areas of your mouth/face/eye. I would recommend taking a course of antibiotics to help clear the infection.
279234 tn?1363108849 I would definitely try to find something to kill the pain. It sounds like you have may have a combination of dental issues and TN. Maybe the dental thing is making the TN flare. I take gabapentin for TN which seems to help. I still am having the TN, and when the pain strikes, I throw my head back instinctively because it feels like someone stabbing me with an ice pick. I'm hoping you get relief soon!
