I grind my teeth but have a mouth guard and recently 3 weeks ago I developed this ongoing tooth pain. I went to the dentist and an endodontist (twice) and the endo thought that it was due to teeth grinding and my night guard being a bit off since xrays etc looked normal and other tap tests. So he adjusted the guard and I thought I was better Friday (saw him thursday) but then started hurting sat afternoon again and this morning was really bothering me. I've been eating on the other side and avoiding hard foods. Yet even talking too long seems to aggravate it (like work meetings). I did have some peri hormone rush nightmares last night but those aren't every night. The pain is really stressing me out as well as being distracting. I do my best to take care of my teeth and gums and really want to preserve them especially since I lost a molar last year due to an old crown cracking. Am trying to save up 4k to replace it. So need other teeth to be okay. ANYWAY. QUESTION: Someone told me that menopause (I'm in peri) can increase tooth sensitivity. Has anyone experienced this and found a remedy? I did go to the chiropractor today and she massaged my jaw muscles which were painful but tooth pain didn't completely disappear so still terrified.
