View Full Version : Aching teeth??

Anyone else ever get this? It's not the type of pain ya get with a cavity or something. Kind of hard to describe, but all of my upper teeth have this weird, deep aching sensation. Very annoying...

Yes, I know exactly what you mean. Sometimes it leads to a headache, too. Most of my teeth are now crowns, but I still get that awful pain in the upper part of my mouth.
What worries me is that I have Avascular Necrosis in my knees. If you research AVN, you'll find that it can also attack the bones in the jaw. Just wondering....

Oh gosh, Marla--your poor knees--that must be terribly painful.
I'll definitely bring this teeth-thing up at my next rheumy appt. (Even though I know he'll just blow it off like he does everything else...)

Thanks for your reply. I don't feel quite so crazy. ;)
