I've had "mouth issues" of late. Very sore gums. I had a "flare up" in my mouth I guess I'd call it. The gums near my front lower teeth got so inflamed that my front lower teeth became almost slightly loose and I had pain down in what felt to be my jaw bone. I was checked for tooth abssesses and everything, and NOTHING. I am finding this disease manifests itself in some very peculiar ways, not always what the medical community is able to recognize it would seem. I have always been an oral hygiene fanatic so it is very disappointing that I am having issues with my gums now. I too have been told I have gingivitis/gum disease and have never had problems before.
Not long ago, I thought I had strep throat perhaps. I went to the doctor (general practitioner) and the throat swabs were negative. He looked in my throat and said I had a large ulcer on my Uvula. It went away on its own, but was painful until it did. Another wasted trip unfortunately.
