How come my upper left molars are causing pain from cold, hot substances?

How come my upper left molars are causing pain from cold, hot substances?

Multiple ways: There might be a few reasons for the sensitivity. First, upper molars can react this way if you have severe allergies or sinus infections. Second, if there are old, failing fillings in the teeth, you may have decay under them requiring removal of the filling and decay and filling replacement or crowns. In addition, if you have had gum problems in the past, you may have exposed roots causing this. ...Read more

Can you get prions from cold hot dogs?

Not temp: It's a good question. Many bacterially affected food can be made safe by high temperature. Not so for prion infected meat. This means that whether cold or hot, badly prion infected meat cannot be made safe by heating. The good news is that prion-dangerous beef is exceedingly rare, whether processed or butchered. ...Read more

Why do some ppl tend to get chills being hot-cold-hot-cold before they get a fever if ever do?

Why do some ppl tend to get chills being hot-cold-hot-cold before they get a fever if ever do?

It's a mild fever: Think of being hot-cold-hot-cold (but without a high reading on the thermometer) as having a mild fever. When feeling hot, the body is wanting to cool off (the brain is telling you that you are hotter than the brain wants you to be). When feeling cold, the body is wanting to get warmer and maybe have a fever (the brain is telling you that it wants you to be hotter, maybe even feverishly hotter). ...Read more

Should I be worried about a deep filling still hurting at cold/hot temperatures or after I chew gum? It's been a month. I floss daily to help it heal.

Should I be worried about a deep filling still hurting at cold/hot temperatures or after I chew gum? It's been a month. I floss daily to help it heal.

Yes: There could be a number of reasons for your tooth still hurting. Since you stated that the filling was deep, the pulp could be irreversibly inflamed. If that is the case, it would require rot canal therapy. However, there could be other reasons, such as the occlusion being high. I would suggest going back to your dentist and have him/her evaluated the situation. ...Read more

Rosacea: If you only have redness of your face and no pimples you can use a new cream called Mirvaso, which is available only with a prescription. It only helps the redness as long as you are using it. Other treatments that maybe more permanent include the pulsed dye laser and intense pulsed light treatment. ...Read more

I had a root canal 2days ago. Still lot pain. My concerne is that I feel exectly the same way - cold... Hot... When touchs my tooth hurts really bad.?

Multiple causes?: It is possible that (1) the root canal treatment is not fully completed. (2) it is "completed" but a canal was "missed" and a nerve is still signaling hot / cold sensitivities. (3) you had two teeth in need of therapy and only one was treated. (4) the wrong tooth was treated. If your dentist (specialist or g.P. Is unable to determine the cause, get a second opinion from an endodontist. ...Read more

Is it normal to get strong headaches when being in cold/hot weather? I get this sensation/feeling of my brain over heating or being cold.

Is it normal to get strong headaches when being in cold/hot weather? I get this sensation/feeling of my brain over heating or being cold.

Not your brain: Your brain is well-insulated from outside temperatures. More importantly, though, extremes of temperature could be triggering your headaches. Keep a journal of when your headaches occur, trying to identify your headache triggers. Also remember to stay well-hydrated, as dehydration plays some role in up to 60% of headaches. See your neurologist, and good luck! ...Read more

Hi I keep getting light headed cold hot flushes and keep throwing up im not diabetic any suggestions?

Lightheadedness: If vertigo rather than lightheadedness occurs I would suspect an inner ear or cerebellar disorder. However lightheadedness that is not vertigo combined with nausea and vomiting is suspicious of a primary stomach disorder like gastritis or virus. Avoid alcohol, caffeine, nicotine and eat a bland diet, drink adequate fluids and flat ginger ale. See your physician for referrals to specialist as needed. ...Read more

Don'b be a hero: Take the day of surgery off from work. You need time for bleeding to stop, for the anesthesia to be metabolized, and to use cold compresses to minimize swelling. Follow your Dentist or Oral Surgeon's verbal and written instructions to the letter. Soft high-protein diet for a few days, then gradually titrate yourself back to your normal diet. For about a week avoid very hot, cold, spicy. ...Read more
