I have been afflicted with migraines for the last decade, with migraines occurring at least 2-3 times a month and lasting 2-3 days at a time, to an incapaciting degree (missed work, etc.) Over the years, saw doctors and took prescription meds to try to control the migraines but without much change in the pattern.
I am writing here to share the fact that about three months ago, I had oral surgery related to gum disease under a single tooth that in turn was related to sensitive/tooth pain.  The outpatient surgery was pretty grueling, but what was noticeable within two weeks was that I had had no migraine or even a headache...As time passed, it was more noticeable. I have not had a migraine and barely ever a headache since the orgal surgery.
Since no one in a decade ever mentioned the possible dental/gum connection, I wanted to share it here in case it will help others. I am female in my early 50s.

va58 - were you ever tested for TMJ? My dentist mentioned that a night guard may help headaches I wake up with if I am grinding my teeth at night
