Avatar n tn HI, Swollen gums can be due to infection or gingivitis, or due to deficiency of vitamins especially vitamin C and B complex. Hence maintaining good oral hygiene and using mouth washes may help. Also multivitamin tablets may be taken. Do consult a dentist for an evaluation. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn I see that im getting canker sores and my glands are swollen and painfull all through my neck and under my chin. My gums are sore too. Has anyone gone through this or might they know what it is,....
606417 tn?1220302738 In some cases, advanced iron deficiency can lead to anemia and may cause scarring in the throat and esophagus, making swallowing difficult. While vitamin C deficiency causes gums to easily bruise and bleed, deficiency can lead to tooth loss. Vitamin D deficiency boosts risk of jaw fracture and gum disease." It could be you need vitamin C among others, but what you say sounds scary--good thing that you are going to the dentist right away. In the meantime, have some orange juice.
Avatar m tn My teeth are a disaster area despite brushing and flossing daily. I have receding gums, three large molars completely cracked off to the gum line and i had to have three root canals and teeth rebuilt, 3/4 of my front tooth cracked off (rebuilt), excessive decay/rapid decay, fillings.... I have had hypothyroid symptoms for decades. I also have had deficiencies of calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D.
Avatar m tn Hello, Such sore swollen gums can be due to gingivitis,infections,malnutrition and vitamin C deficiency,pregnancy or sensitivity to toothpaste or mouthwash . Take vitamin C supplements for some days and change your toothpaste brand and avoid using mouthwashes if your swollen gums are caused by sensitivity to toothpaste or mouthwash.Also have good oral hygiene. If the symptoms persist then pls consult a dentist and get gingivitis ruled out. Hope it helps.
Avatar n tn I have swollen lips ans swollen gums and had a fever a few days ago. Has anyone had these problems before?
Avatar n tn For over a year I have been experiencing sore and sometimes inflamed and swollen gums. I have seen both my dentist and hygienist and we have been unable to solve the problem or what is causing it. The pain is now there more often than not now, whereas before it was intermittent. I have not managed to pin point what may cause the symptoms.
Avatar n tn Greetings, About two weeks ago I woke up randomly with what felt to be sore, inflamed gums near the first molars on each side of my front 4 incisors. I also noticed that the gums beneath them seem to have receded quickly. I also had several ulcers, one on the roof of my mouth, one under my tongue -- both of which feel as though they've healed up. I had a deep cleaning done a week ago -- the Dentist noticed a significant buildup of calculus on the back of my front incisors.

1760652 tn?1313065993 I don't know if this is true of everyone who has Morton's toe, but they say those who have it have a P5P deficiency. P5P is a breakdown of vitamin B6. Maybe talk to your nutritionist about adding P5P (available in vitamin stores, etc.) along with your B-complex vitamin. I know it's supposed to affect magnesium and B12 in some way. This is not my expertise, just something I tripped across in my reading. Hang in there.

Avatar n tn I have the same problem as this red swollen itchy eyelids. Don't have allergies like this. I do wear contacts--why would they cause this? I haven't been wearing the contacts for days now....

Avatar f tn Hello, The common symptoms of B12 deficiency are diarrhea,constipation,pale skin, swollen, red tongue or bleeding gums and long term deficiency can cause loss of balance, numbness etc. A physical examination and tests like CBC, reticulocyte count, vitamin B12 levels may help. Other differentials of your condition are reflux disease, gastritis, ear problems etc. If the problem is severe it is best to contact a doctor and get examined. Keep me posted. Best luck and regards!
Avatar f tn This can be because of poor oral hygiene, deficiency of vitamins, drug allergy, disorders of the gums and teeth etc. Proper oral care is the key to good oral health. Also taking of multi-vitamins and vitamin C, use of soothing gels may help. Also it is best to consult your Doctor for an examination as your problem is since several months. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn pain and tingling in extremities, twitching muscles, tremors, constipation, sinus pressure, insomnia, fatigue, eye pain, tachycardia, excessive sweating, chest pains, shortness of breath, tightness in chest, neck, and jaw, headaches, nausea, swollen gums, and now for the past 3 days I have had a fever that gets higher than 101 at night. I have been test for M.S.
Avatar n tn I had a painful right swollen lymph node which later I developed a swollen right tonsil with a huge white spot and hurt alot. My gums are very swollen and painful, I cant chew. I was put on antibiotics for strep throat. But didn't work and got worse, my neck swelled and right cheek. My bottom lip developed blisters with white puss and my tongue with canker sores.
Avatar f tn I'd take high potency multi-Vit B with breakfast and lunch, plus, perhaps for a month or two, a bit extra of the separate B vitamins whose deficiency symptoms you have, plus a good multi-vitamin-multi mineral combination. When you see and feel improvement you can drop the additional separate B's, but continue with the rest of them. B vits tend to rev most people up with more energy, so I don't take them after 1 or 2 PM. Make a list of your symptoms: appearance, feel, taste.
Avatar f tn Long-term deficiency can lead to a calcium deficiency, alcoholic hallucinations, unusual face and eye movement, alopecia (baldness), swollen gums, and lesions of the gums. The symptoms of magnesium deficiency are identical with many of the symptoms of thyroid disease, especially hyperthyroidism. A slight deficiency and you will notice slight depression and lack of well-being.
628109 tn?1224367513 Herpes and HPV infection too should be ruled out with a history of unprotected sex and swollen lymph node. The tongue could be painful due to iron or multi vitamin deficiency. It could also be due to oral thrush or fungal infection. Contact dermatitis or reaction to some irritant in food can be another cause. Use glycerin gel and clean the mouth well and tongue with a tongue cleaner (if there are no patches on the tongue). Take iron and multivitamin supplement and see if they help.
Avatar n tn Sorry to hear of your problem, I understand how uncomfortable it is, because I myself have also suffered from this as well as having a swollen tongue in the past I learned that Vitamin B deficiencies are one of the most common deficiencies that can affect mouth and teeth. So I bought Vitamin B12 tablets that you place one under the tongue from the health shop. And this helped. Because you are medications, some of these can cause dry tongue and can also cause Thrush in the mouth.
Avatar m tn (D3 level more important than D2) The only blood test that can diagnose vitamin D deficiency is a 25-hydroxy-vitamin D (25 OH vitamin D). Unfortunately, some doctors are still ordering the wrong test, 1,25-dihydroxy-vitamin D. Magnesium level: have your Doctor do a Magnesium RBC test. It's not a standard test doctors run, but the only accurate blood test for magnesium. Magnesium serrum which most doctors run is not accurate.
Avatar f tn Previous to the sore throat, I had been experiencing gums that were red and swollen, and the skin on my gums peels off. Also the area below my gums, the crevice between the gum and cheek, in the 4 areas below my molars the skin is very irritated with sores and the skin over top of the sores is white and peels away. I also have sores on the side of my tongue, where it attaches to the back of my throat is red, irritated and white skin forms over it, but it peels away easily (like the crevices).

Avatar f tn Hi, welcome to the forum, white patchy coated tongue is seen in many conditions. (vitamin C deficiency), bacterial, viral or fungal infections arise in the gums and teeth, producing acids and toxins that usually erode and cause inflammation of the gums (gingivitis) and white tongue also. The inflammation makes gums swollen, and also affects tongue by white coating. If the tongue is covered by a coating, it may indicate the presence of toxins in the stomach, small intestine or large intestine.
Avatar n tn dry mouth and poor wound healing. Vitamin K deficiency. This can also cause GI bleeding Vitamin B12 deficiency. This can cause GI effects that include anorexia, nausea, vomiting, weight loss, abdominal discomfort, jaundice and depression. Folic Acid deficiency. Associated symptoms are fatigue, weakness, difficulty breathing, palpitations, nausea, anorexia irritable, forgetful, headaches and fainting spells. I'm assuming your platelets were good????
Avatar f tn My results showed deficiency in vitamin b12 -200 and vitamin d-15 for which I started taking vitamin d3 (once a week) and vitamin b12 capsule (Daily 1 capsule for 15 days). Also my general ENT doctor diagnosed me with GERD and told me to take medication for same which is now ok. Also am taking Homeopathic medicine for my acidity as I hv a recurrent problem with acidity since many years.
Avatar f tn No known allergies, oh and I didn't bite my lip, and there's no sore anywhere, just redness around my gums and painful swollen bottom lip (I put the hydrocortisone on the left only.
