Anyone have a problem with taking vitamins and it affecting their gums? I notice when I start taking vitamins my gums get sensitive. Not all over but just on a couple of teeth where my gums are receding. I am not good at taking my vitamins daily and twice now I have noticed after starting up again my gums become sensitive, but once I stop they are fine.

No. But I just found out that I do get gum and tooth pain when I eat gluten. The same type of pain that my hands and feet get, pulsing or in waves (not evenly spaced) and varying from dull to sharp and can stop or start seemingly randomly. It's got to be neuropathy in me. My gums are in pretty good shape.

Which vitamins are you taking? I thought I may have been overdoing it on B6 for awhile because of my nerve pain. Also, have you actually tested low in the vitamins you're taking? Are your vitamins guaranteed gluten/other allergies you might have, free? Are they chewable or swallowed...I'd guess that chewable ones might irritate poor gums much like candy might.

I take Natures Made vitamin D and Calcium. It says gluten-free on the bottle. Both are pills and I just take them with water.
