I’m trying to work out whether the symptoms I currently have are to do with my MS or the root canal I had a couple of weeks ago. I’d be really grateful if anyone could tell me if they have had similar symptoms.
When I cleaned my teeth yesterday morning I notied that the left side of my tongue didn’t feel quite right - a bit numb. It’s hard to say but I think the gum on the left may also feel a bit numb. MS wise I tend to get numbness in legs, hands & torso especially when I am tired. I’ve taken this week off work as I could feel that I was starting to feel a bit ‘wiped out’ and very tired so it’s possible it could be triggered by that.
On the other hand, I had root canal 4 weeks ago on a left molar and a temp filling put in. Then 2 weeks ago this was replaced by a semi-permanent filling and a bit more work. I’ve got to go back in 2 months to get the permanent filling done. I’m wondering if ‘killing’ my nerve may have done something.
Or, could it be a mixture of the two - infection in tooth causing MS numbness to flare up?
I’m not sure what to do. I’m don’t have 100% faith in my dentist to go back and ask her and so if anyone else has experienced this I would really like to know so I can decide whether it is MS or problem dental work.
Thanks in advance.
