3 days of molar teeth pain.

Not sensitive to heat or cold, just unable to put any pressure on the teeth by eating or by brushing.

I'm so upset about this-I am worried the spirochetes are in the nerves near my teeth.

What do I do for the pain so I can chew? It is all my molars, top and bottom.

VERY common with lyme for many reasons.

Call your LLMD if they know a LL dentist. And at your next appt. remind them of this issue.

Even if you can't find a LL dentist, still see your dentist to be sure all is in order with your bite alignment and tooth structures. Get assessed for bruxism (but if you get a night mouthguard, make it hard, not gummy bear soft)./

Magnesium

Softer foods. Blenderize meals if need be. Do not chew so hard if it hurts.

Certain kinds of biofeedback specifically to address bruxism, bite, etc. FELDENKRAIS for erogonomics, posture, etc.

But that won't work if magnesium levels are too low. Magnesium may need to be 1,000 - 2,000 mg a day -- in divided doses, never at once/.

For rinsing mouth many times a day:

Auromere has a very nice mouthwash with no alcohol, dyes or additives. It also does not burn as do most. The herbals oils in this can help combat a wide range of pathogens.

Xylitol is it, too.

Thanks Keebler [Smile]

I'm relieved to hear that it is another common facet of lyme, although a bit upset as there's a good chance now lyme is progressing further, as this is the first time I've experienced molar teeth pain.

Yes, purreed soup it is...tried overcooked veggies today-still too much chewing so it looks like purreed soups for now.

I will be sure and ask my doc to recommend a good dentist.

Thanks for the tips.

Is the molar pain felt on both top and bottom teeth?
Are you having sinus problems?
Check your temperature; if elevated, that's a sign of infection.


Do you have access to a SOTA Magnetic Pulser?
Or a SOTA LightWorks?

Either of these would help, as they improve blood circulation and reduce inflammation and pain.
There are other brands of machines like this too.

Failing that, try hot compresses.

I had the same problem. It was solved by using Oral Defense by Supreme Nutrition. I was told it clears toxicity from gums and the gut. Really worked for me.

Tooth and jaw pain is one of the symptoms of protomyzoa. You might want to get tested for it.

I believe people often attribute everything to "lyme" and keep on taking the same antibiotics literally for years. The ABX used for borellia will not affecting protomyxzoa.

If symptoms change, more than likely another infection is coming out. If you are not responding to medication and getting worse, more than likely you are not hitting the active infection.

Do you ever get any of these symptoms: a horse voice, dry cough, insomnia, muscle twitching, pain in joints, muscle pain, headaches behind the eyes, cold hands and feet in winter, poor capillary refill, sores on scalp, air hunger, anxiety. . . .

With my BLO I always had hypersensitive teeth and excessive salivation which were symptoms of cranial nerve infection. When I started the curcumin treatment they responded and normalized. Perhaps yours are also infected if the dentist rules out decay and enamel loss and they're hypersensitive.

Try oil pulling (go to oilpulling.com). It is an amazing therapy.

Thanks everyone for all your great suggestions.

I am having a heck of a time with this teeth pain.

Carol-yes it is the top and bottom molars. I don't have any congestion but I will try the hot compresses to see if it helps. Thanks [Smile]

Neff-i do have sores on my scalp. Also inside of one ear. Do I need to be off abx for a proto test?
Thanks for reminding me of proto. I hate to even say this but because there is no cure for it, I have been deliberately ignored asking my doc about it. Thanks for reminding me about the symptoms. I need to get some courage and get tested for it. [Smile]

Fading out- I definitely have BLO. I didn't realize sore teeth were also a symptom of BLO. Decay and enamel wear is not an issue. I will look into the curcumin. Thank you. [Smile]

Patches-thanks for the tip about that supplement. I will look into it. [Smile]

Tammy-oil pulling...hmmm...I've heard of that before for something but can't recall where. Thanks for the link [Smile]

I had long standing tooth pain from a mercury removal about 7 years ago. I had the dentist reshape the tooth but it didnt really help. It was a huge mercury removal and the doc said that orginarilly a root canal would be done but he would try to save it. So for many years I had to chew on only one side of my mouth for the level 2 discomfort.

Then I went to a biomemetic dentist that is dedicated to never doing root canals. Its a whole new type of dentistry. They use ozone to treat the pulp and dentin to kill microbes. They use a microsope to visualize cracks that other dentists cant see. He told me that the reason my other tooth was hurting, even with low level pain was because the other dentist didnt get all the bacteria out and that the tooth would need to be redone.

I never had it redone. Then last year I started to get some jaw pain below some teeth in a different area of my mouth. I did MMS mouthwashes and the pain was soon gone, after about a week of two mouth washes a day. I activated 3 drops of mms and mixed it with an ounce or so of water and rinsed the mouth. The amazing thing was that the pain from that first tooth I had worked on went away also. I can now chew on both sides of my mouth. ... which tells me that the MMS probably penetrated well into that tooth and killed bacteria.

just had bio meridian testing and dr found a bacteria attacking my tooth and it was one specific tooth that has been causing me pain like you describe Greta, for at least 10 years.

Be thankful in all things- even difficult times and sickness and trials - because there is something GOOD to be seen
