I have RA. I get Cimzia shots(biologic drug) and Methotrexate(chemo drug). Just some background....

My mouth is burning ... my Tung is burning. my gums ach .. most of my teeth hurt. My big problem starts with one tooth ..grows from a throbbing pain to a full blown cellulitis (infection of soft tissue) emergency room .. intervenes antibiotic. 2nd time it happened. ..got to doctor for oral antibiotic before it distorted the side of my face with swelling and intense pain. 3rd time now same tooth ..same throbbing pain. Going to a dentist today. Maybe it's just a bad tooth not RA or effects of Medicine. When you're in pain you want it to stop ...guess it's important to find out the reason for the pain so the doctor knows how to treat it. . Some times I feel like I'm on a merry-go-round. Thanks for listening to me ramble on. Can anyone out there relate?
