Headaches (and possibly TINNITUS??) caused by pain from teeth cavities
Mark0777 posted:
I am a 39 year old male. I have not visited a dentist in 10 years. My teeth are not rotting, .... but they are not perfect. I know I have at least 2 cavities. Unfortunately I have a sweet tooth and I love eating desserts, candies...... I also realize I must take things in moderation. My question is this.. if a person can be negligent towards their teeth and allow cavities develop... that person will experience pain (as I do when I eat hot/cold foods/beverages. The pain could be so intense that the nerves in the gums could cause headaches/migranes. I think we all know this ...right?? Could anyone back me up on the following: If a person can experience headaches/migranes from devoloping teeth cavities....COULD IT BE POSSIBLE if that pain could develop to TINNITUS (the unpleasant ringing in the ear) I have had TINNITUS for over 10 years. I do my best to cut back on foods high in sodium...never seems to go away. I DO have pain coming from nerves in the gum line due to cavities. Can TINNITUS develop thru physical work activity... also stress from work?
