Constant neck clicking when taking breath, turning head etc Muscle twitching Weakness Extreme fatigue Cold sensitivity Feet tingling Any ideas please?

Constant neck clicking when taking breath, turning head etc Muscle twitching Weakness Extreme fatigue Cold sensitivity Feet tingling Any ideas please?

See an MD: I would consider a nutritional deficiency or a hormonal imbalance. Both can be discovered with a good talk with your physician, and simple lab work. The neck clicking might be something else, if not really something we call Chvostec's sign, which is due to low calcium. (Since breathing associated too)...not entirely certain. Start some multivitamins in meantime....and see doc. Get well. ...Read more

Can a filling cause the tooth to become sensitive to cold and hot foods/drinks?

Can a filling cause the tooth to become sensitive to cold and hot foods/drinks?

Yes it is possible: If the tooth had a deep "cavity" that needed to be filled, the filling may be very close to the nerve. This may cause some sensitivity. It is also possible that your filling is a little "high" and needs to be adjusted. On and off sensitivity is always possible with a new filling. If you do not have decrease in symptoms in a week or two or it gets worse, contact your dentist for further evaluation. ...Read more

My tooth was sensitive to cold and hot I used sensodyne and it helped now I have no sensitivity but now I have constant pain. Dentistnohelp/jumpthegun?

Can be difficult: It can be perplexing trying to determine the health of the pulp (nerve) of a tooth. There are some pulp vitality tester but not always accurate. Judging the signs and symptoms of a tooth may all you have to work with. I am sure that your dentist has tried to rationalize what could cause such an event: large or deep filling, trama, cracked tooth, etc. You may want to go to a endodontist. ...Read more

Need an opinion about a root canal!? I had a root canal about 4 years ago. The dentist never put a cap/crown on it. Yesterday it started feeling very sensitive to cold. It does not hurt to chew on that side, doesn't hurt when I push on it and heat doesn't

Because: Because the nerve in the tooth was removed during the root canal procedure the tooth is unable to respond to changes in temperature. Though every root canal treated tooth does not need a crown, root canal treated teeth are more prone to fracture due to increased brittleness. Fractured teeth typically cause pain on biting pressure or increase the risk of infection as bacteria can migrate down the fracture. I would look at adjacent vital teeth as the source of your discomfort to changes in temperature either due to root exposure of decay. See your dentist as this is a sign that some treatment is required. ...Read more

Many possibilities: If your tooth was not sensitive before the filling and has been sensitive since the filling, there could be a problem with the filling which should be rechecked by your dentist. If the cavity was deep the pulp or nerve may be irritated. This may lead to a root canal if the condition worsens. Either way after 4-5 months this should be rechecked by your dentist. ...Read more
