Yes: Any infection can cause one to feel bad, sluggish or ill. It would depend perhaps on the severity of the infection. Oral infections are usually painful and can become systemic in the body. One has to be careful that they do not have certain cardiac or valvular conditons of the heart that oral infections could make very much worse. If concerned see your dentist or oral surgeon and your pcp. Read more

What could cause flu like symptoms with fatigue blood work is normal no sign of infection?

What could cause flu like symptoms with fatigue blood work is normal no sign of infection?

Many possibilites: Viral infections often produce little to no evidence of infection on CBC, esp. If no previous WBC differential to compare with, may only result in a shift of more lymphocyte to neutrophils than baseline, if that. Additionally, the symptoms are a systemic response to virus, if present; not necessarily caused by virus. As Soul? Mind? Brain? Body creatures, symptoms can response to a variety of stimuli.

What are these symptoms a cause of? Fatigue, trouble sleeping, being cold, slow digestion, headaches, bronchial/sinus infections, long term depression/anxiety, fuzzy thinking, short term memory loss, weight gain, muscle/joint pain

What are these symptoms a cause of? Fatigue, trouble sleeping, being cold, slow digestion, headaches, bronchial/sinus infections, long term depression/anxiety, fuzzy thinking, short term memory loss, weight gain, muscle/joint pain

Many possibilities: Dr. Jackson is correct: these may be not at all related, but clusters of symptoms from several etiologic origins. I think that depression could very reasonably be associated with a good deal of your symptomatology, with the overlaying onset of an upper respiratory infection. Firstly a thorough assessment by your pcp is in order, then consultation with a therapist to address long term depression. Read more

Had IBS for a year. Tried diets not worked. I recently found out that have a infection in gum above tooth, could this be a cause of the ibs? Thankyou.

Had IBS for a year. Tried diets not worked. I recently found out that have a infection in gum above tooth, could this be a cause of the ibs? Thankyou.

Not Likely: The infection on your gum is almost certainly due to bacteria- an old filling could be breaking down or you have not been cleaning your teeth enough. The stress of the ibs may be making you more susceptible to dental infections by reducing the effectiveness of your immune system. Read more

During a dentist app, they told me my tonge was a little swollen but didn't go over what could cause it? I had gum infection, and im still in treatment

Ask that dentist: What "could" cause it or what "is causing" is a very different question. You should ask the dentist who told you that. There are too many variables and not being able to know more information nor being able to actually examine you leaves us without a better answer to your question. Sorry. Read more

My gum got injured during dental impression. The DA purposely hurt me with a wrong size tray. Could that damage my tooth nerve & cause me gum infection??

My gum got injured during dental impression. The DA purposely hurt me with a wrong size tray. Could that damage my tooth nerve & cause me gum infection??

The: Dental assistant tries to use the smallest tray that will do the job because an over large tray will extend too far back and make you wretch or gag. Often the contour of the bone under the gums is such that a very slightly too small tray will dig into the gum. (S)he was trying to make you more comfortable, not hurt you on purpose. At the most, your gum was scratched. It will heal quickly. Read more

Can a sinus infection cause fatigue and chest pains?

Can a sinus infection cause fatigue and chest pains?

Sinusitis & Fatigue: Anytime your body is fighting an infection, it takes its toll and causes fatigue. Sinusitis can certainly drain you of all your energy. You need it properly treated by a doctor, rest and hydrate. The chest pain may be due to general inflammation and costochondritis, especially if you have been coughing or forcefully blowing your nose. NSAIDS like Advil (ibuprofen) and Motrin will help with that. Read more
