impacted wisdom teeth cause dizziness?
taxburden posted:
i've been feeling incredibly dizzy and lightheaded lately. i've also been having headaches. when the dizziness hits it's like a slap in the face then my anxiety kicks in and it makes it 10x worse. at first i thought it was an inner ear infection. after a round of antibiotics and ear drops its still here! i know i have an impacted wisdom tooth and i've heard they can make you feel crazy but i'm not feeling any pain from it. what else could be causing this? i can't continue to live this way. i'm scared to drive or do anything feeling like i'm gonna topple over at any given moment. thanks in advance for your help!

Dear taxburden:

I personally have never heard of wisdom teeth causing dizziness, but stranger things have happened. It is impossible to diagnose you over this limited forum. I recommend that you go to your dentist or oral surgeon and have the teeth looked at. Only with an X-ray and and examination, can one give you a proper opinion. Chances are that the teeth have nothing to do with it. A good check up will not hurt.

Best of luck,
Dr. Zev Kaufman
