Sensitive Teeth... Is this fibro

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi

This past week I have noticed my teeth have become extremely sensitive. I've never had problems before and I have an appointment to see my dentist. I'm wondering if anyone else has this and if it's part of fibro. I've also started to notice at night I clench my jaw together really tight so don't know if that's the cause of my sensitive teeth. Does anyone else experience this at all and is it to do with fibro?

Thanks

      Hi Jacqueline

      Well I went to my dentist today and he said its common for us fibro sufferers to clench our jaw so tight at night. Hopefully him taking a mould of my teeth so I can wear shields at night whilst sleeping will help but if not he said I'd be referred to the hospital.

      Hope your pain goes away x

    Hi Alison,

    yes I get teeth pain. I do also have a problem with clenching my teeth on a night, it's usually caused by stress, which is always difficult to eliminate. But I've also had problems with my teeth aching...they started a couple of months ago for no apparent reason. I didn't go to the dentist as I couldn't pin point one tooth, it was lots, so I just waited it out hoping it would go and put it down to fibro. It took roughly six or so weeks to get better, but it has, so I'm guessing that it was indeed the fibro.

    hope this helps

    have a good day

      Hi Boqer

      Thanks for your reply. I went to my dentist today and he did say it's common for people with fibro to clench their jaw at night. He mentioned bruxism and also temporomandiblar joint disorder. He took a mould of my teeth and I'm going to have a mouth guard to wear at night. If that doesn't help them he will refer me to the hospital.

      Hopefully that will sort mine.

      Thanks

      Hi Peeky

      It's rubbish isn't it. I went to my dentist today and he said its common for people with fibro to clench their jaw so tight at night. He did a mould of my teeth and I will be given a mouth shield to wear at night to see if it helps. If not he said I would be referred to the hospital.

      Hopefully that will work.

      We don't half have a lot to deal with having bloody fibro 😞 X

      Can't say I have had numb jaw or tingling but I just wake up and my jaw is aching so much due to how tight I clench it at night. I'm sure someone on here may have as there always seems to be people that can relate to any kind of symptom you have.

      I hope you get some answers x

      Yes I have painful upper teeth and get numb tingling on my face, usually low left sided, lip will go tingly and left side feels numb but if I touch it I can still feel the touch it just feels numb or swollen or dead if that makes any sense
