In the past I have written about my dental problems especially having some of my teeth extracted. It seems to only make sense that a tooth ache could cause issues with balance, tinnitus and possibly ear problems. And of course there may be a Meniere’s disease connection as well. Sam, a regular commenter, sent me a link from medicinenet.com which talks about temporomandibular joint disorder. The temporomandibular joint” is the area directly in front of the ear on either side of the head where the upper jaw (maxilla) and lower jaw (mandible) meet.”
I know when I have dental problems or the muscles in my face are sore this leads to ear pain, headaches and lately tinnitus. There was also another email from Liz this week who described the problems she had with pain around her face that lead to some rather serious issues as well as dealing with fibromyalgia.
For me it seemed to affect every system in my body. Tinnitus, ear fullness so much fluid gathering around my face that it impacted on my teeth and they would crack in high winds or supermarket air and eventually fall out or my dentist would pull out remarkably healthy teeth. betahistine and BFZ (diuretic helps enormously but barometric pressure at extreme is a nightmare. low blanket cloud with wind and high clear pressure trigger attacks and also I cannot wear glasses to san or read as attack is immediate and i have to lie down before I fall down and throw up.Feel free to comment and please subscribe to my RSS Feed
