I have had these problems for 2 months now what should I do?

Posted , 4 users are following.

I have had these dental problems for two months now, and there is no obvious sign of anything wrong. Here are my symptoms: pain in my jaw, oral pain, roof of mouth pain, teeth pain, temple pain, headaches and fever. I have been to the hospital and to several specialists and no one could spot anything going on. What can I do? The pain is now at its absolute worst. Please help me.

    Ok now I'm not trying to alarm you but some of your symptoms sound like a disease that is very serious. It is called giant cell arteritis. I will include a hyperlink. It is very important that you go to the ER right away as this disease can effect your vision. There they will run a few tests. One is a biopsy and the other is some blood tests to check for imflamation.

    I have PMR which is a disease that goes along with this disease which is why I am familar with it. So please feel free to email me if you have any other questions or you can of course post them here.

    Good luck. I hope you do not have this disease. But even if you do, it is very easily treated.

    neuralgia or trigeminal nerve problem. TMJ How are your glands. Glandular fever can present in many ways. Have you had severe pain before. Have you been treated with opiods? Do you still take opiods. Hyperalgesia is now my favorite diagnosis but my absolute worse fear. Good luck
