Hi guys,

My teeth have been sensitive for a while now and was wondering if it could be related to fibromyalgia?
I was also wondering if I do have fibromyalgia, could I possibly get a weight lifting restriction for it?
Still no insurance yet, but I turned in my application to the DHS place we have here in Michigan, so hopefully soon I'll get approved for Medicaid. My boyfriend also gave me the number of a guy who does life insurance, but the guy said he has the number of another guy who does health insurance and we're supposed to get that number in email this Wednesday. Hopefully, I can finally get some help.

Thanks to everyone here again for being so helpful and kind!!

hi andrea and welcome to the board,

I have very sensitive teeth and think it is related to fm.  about 10 years ago i kept getting terrible toothaches but when i went to dentist he couln't find anything wrong. After a few months of recurrent visits he took out 3 teeth from the same side on my lower jaw.

The pain didn't so away, i was then sent to a dental surgeon and he was furious with the dentist for taking them out as they weren't bad. It turned out i had nueralgia,(i didn;t know i had fm at the time) i still get trouble with my teeth but at least now they don't extract them. They just pain me from time to time. I remember reading once that a clued in dentist can be one of the first professionals to pick up fibro.

On the bright side, i still get discounted dental services because of it. :-)

Take care and i hope you can get some support here.

Thank you for answering my question, Boo. I was worrying today if maybe something ELSE was wrong with me, and since I can't afford it, can't go see a dentist. Do....if it is fibromyalgia, I hope that's why my teeth feel so sensitive.

HI,

It's ironic, i saw your post on 'i have a question'. It has been suggested to me that i may have some kind of mild austism ans also AS was mentioned. I am seeing a person tommorow and don't know aht to expect. It could be a mild learning disability either. I have very poor writing skills and can't seem to interpret people or situations very well.

My nephew has just been diagnosed with mild autism and learning difficulties, which gave me the courage to look into it for myself as my mother mentioned it might be beneficial.(there's other family problems to suggest myself and nephew are not alone, I have 2 aunts the same)

30 years too late i know, but maybe it would make future learning easier if i had an idea why i find evrything so hard.
It could be just bad fibro fog either, but i have nothing to loose by investigating.

Take care boo

My teeth became very sensitive. I felt like I had a cavity or something, but it wasn't. Then at times, all my teeth would get sensitive. I found that using Sensodyne takes it all away. Try some and see if its helps. But you have to use it every day.

My teeth are very sensitive. I had braces, and when they remove them they grind the adhesive away with a tool! OH MY GOD it hurt!!! They would not even touch my very back molars becuase I hit the tech twice when I jerked in pain lol... Whats not so funny is that they forgot to mention that the glue on my back teeth is corrosive!

Wow, I am newly diagnosed but never even considered that my tooth sensitivity could be related to all of my other issues. I work for a dentist and swear I have a cavity here or there but, nope....never have one. This makes sense now.
Diagnosed with Fibro in 09.

My teeth were bad. I now have full store bought teeth (full dentures). When I still had my own, Sensodyne was my friend. It takes it a bit to start actually being effective. But it was the only thing that actually did help and did what it said it would. I'm not sure exactly how it works cause at the time I never investigated it's ingredients, but it was what saved me the constant pain and headaches from my teeth till they were able to get them outta my head.

I am new to this forum but I am not new to FM. I was diagnosed in 1995. Started getting symptoms in 1992 but nobody new what the problem was. I have had sensative teeth for years and have had to wear a nightguard for 20 years due to teeth gringing and clinching in my sleep. I had not heard if there is a connection to FM. My teeth have not been responding to sensodyn lately either. Hmmmmmmm. I have an unrelated question that brought me to this forum. I have been taking Lyrica for a few months now. It had helped my pain initially but now I find myself unable to bear weight on my knees and my hands are always stiff and sore. Every morning I wake up and my hands are "asleep" like your foot gets when you sit on it too long. Then the feeling fades except 3 fingers which are always tingling now. Anyone ever hear of these reactions to Lyrica? Or even Cymbalta? I was started on them both at the same time. Now I have to take an 8 hour trip tomorrow and am dreading it!!!!
