I was just curious if anyone here has had an iron infusion and suffered some tooth pain later on?

I'm trying to figure stuff out and the only reason i can come up with as to why my teeth hurt so much @__@

i am not sure if this will help, but since being diagnosed with Celiac in July 2005, I have had EVERY tooth have a break in it. I am in the beginning stages of having them all pulled out and dentures instead.

Here is the conclusion that two specialists and my doctor have determined to have some effect:

1. I have a hard time balancing all my electrolytes in my body, along with my vitamin and mineral absorbsion (much like almost EVERY Celiac)

2. Extreme difficiency in Vitamin d prior to diagnosis

3. Salivary glands production slowed since diagnoses, especially after being "glutened"

4. Excess of bacteria found in my saliva, where most Celiacs have in their intestine, I carry in my salivary glands.

All of the above has eroded my teeth, to the point where they are "skeletal" in appearance.

I feel your pain, maybe this helps.

I don't know what the medical reason is for this, but I had an iron infusion today and all of my front teeth are hurting. I'm going to call my doctor tomorrow and ask. I'm sure it has something to do with the almost migraines I'm having
