Teeth & Gum senitivity

Hi shellc - sorry to keep repeating myself!

The health of my mouth improved so much when I stopped eating gluten! Too bad it took me SO, SO long to figure out the problem! If you are allergic to gluten, it can inflame your gums and cause ulcers and, in general, wreck your teeth. Just an idea….

The dry mouth will wreck your teeth also, and that's a common side effect of many medications, like antidepressants. My dentist told me all his patients on antidepressants had worsening problems. Saliva helps keep your mouth healthy.

Good luck to you!

I was diagnosed with sarcoidosis in 2002 and fibromyalgia in 2003. I run the gamut with symptoms from chronic fatigue to costochondritis to plantar warts to now gum problems. My gums are so sensitive. I use sensitive toothpaste and went to the dentist this week and couldn't find anything but have a small line/pocket on my gums. Gave me a prescription for medicated mouth wash. So many people do not understand fibromyalgia. It's nice to have forums like this to be able to share with people that do understand.
