I know Rachel has said that her TMJ quit when she went gluten-free.

I have had TMJ for well over 25 years, everytime I go to the dentist for work they have to put me out because of the pain from the TMJ. Now, I have had to go to the dentist 2 times a week in the last month. First we filled a tooth and the filling immediately came out. So, he drilled deeper and put a bigger filling in, which is the way of what is left of my teeth that I have left. Well that absessed instantly to such a painful point it had to be pulled out. I am still on antibiotics and it has been over a week since it was pulled. I have been back twice last week and going back today again. My mouth hurts so much and I still have pain in the place where the tooth is missing. This is the longest this has ever gone on for with a tooth. I am concerned because I have lost over 11 teeth in less than 5 years and 4 of those teeth were last year.

I was wondering if any of you confirmed Celiacs have this lasting pain problem etc., before or after you have been gluten-free.

Thanks so much,

Rusla

I have lost a phenominal amount of teeth in the last five years. Now, I have had an ongoing tooth problem for over a month. One filling came out, they drilled deepered and put in the second one and then the tooth instantly absessed. I am on antibiotics and the tooth was pulled a week ago and my mouth still hurts and there is pain where the tooth was, they have x-rayed it to see that it was all out. Do or did any of you have these kind of probleems before or after gluten-free?

Also before the discovery of the Hashimoto's my urine had a nasty peculiar smell to it, there shows no infection per se. However, even with the synthroid it has not disappeared. So once again the question is the same as above.

Thanks,

Rusla

Hi my celiac friends.

I am also going to the dentist because of a tooth problem. I will say this -- I have read that loss of tooth enamel is common in C D. I have experieced it. It's painful. But I noticed -- Rusla -- you are on thyroid medication. I read when your T's I think it's T4 is too high it causes tooth loss tooth problems... and my T4 was off the chart just before this problem.

Now the dentist wants me to take antibiotic before the root canal and crown. Any ideas anyone?

I'm wondering what I can take ANTIBIOTIC that will not kill me.

I was diagnosed with TMJ in college. And I've noticed a definite decline in my teeth, which used to always be excellent. Got my first crown last year. I attributed it to being on prednisone. I was also diagnosed with osteopenia, so I figured if my bones were suffering, my teeth would, too. Since I've turned my health around for the better, my bone density has improved.

I've been terrified lately with tooth pain and reciding/itch gums in the last couple months since I actually went gluten-free. I always had perfect teeth, now I'm afraid I'm going to end up losing them. My mouth is so dry no matter how much water I drink!

I responded on your other post about this subject. Do check with the dentist to make sure you're not just finding a gluten-free antibiotic, but a gluten-free antibiotic that is appropriate for this type of work.

    • if you have celiac and you eat gluten, you will feel terrible and do damage to your body.  there isn't any 'morning after' (for lack of a better term) tried and true remedy.  if i am accidently glutened (and i am insanely careful, so this does not happen often anymore) i find that drinking plenty of water and long, hot showers make me feel better, but it doesn't leave until day 14.  14 days.  ain't nobody got time for that.  no matter what i try, it's naps and snacks for 14 days.  then the fog lifts and my guts stop protesting.  you will get better at avoiding gluten and cc by practicing being gluten free.  i would eat whole foods (avoid processed while your guts are healing) and skip eating out for awhile until you get better at knowing how to determine which restaurants are safe and which ones don't give a crap if they give you the craps <see what i did there lolz) go to the coping page and read the newbie thread.  there is much useful info there - more things to avoid than just bread - and ways to navigate this lifestyle.  welcome to your new normal.  pack a lunch, because if ya got celiac, every day's a picnic.  literally. 
    •   My mistake... HUGE Oops... She hasn't been diagnosed with anything as of yet. I couldn't remember the name so I googled and DH came up. Well that was wrong.... it is Keratosis pilaris she has. i just really don't want her to get to 20 years old and finally become allergic to lactose like her father, and continue to gain so much weight that she needs knee replacements, and diabetes,  and depression, and bipolar, and brain fog and dementia beginning at 48 and dead at 50 like my MIL, or like my mother having allergies to soy, egg, now corn and milk too, also a diabetic.... because of all these allergies she's allergic to a lot of antibiotics and much OTC medicine as well Thank you for your advice thus far
    • i was at a meeting recently, where they serve dinner, ironically the meeting is at a communitiy room at our local hospital (where the meal is catered by the hospital cafeteria and i do not eat BECAUSE THEY CAN'T DO GLUTEN FREE.  AT A HOSPITAL.)  but i digress.... 'oh, my doctor told me i have that, too.  i just can't stop eating bread ha ha ha' as she chomps a bite of dinner roll.   worse?  she's a doctor's wife    ya can't fix stupid 
    • If she was actually diagnosed, by a skin biopsy, for DH, then she has Celiac.  NO need for further testing. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/can-a-skin-biopsy-for-dermatitis-herpetiformis-dh-confirm-celiac-disease-or-is-an-endoscopy-still-needed/  
    • i find that i can tolerate some foods that were off limits to me (soy, certain veggies, ice cream, chocolate, etc) if i do not eat them two days in a row, for whatever reason.  i'm thinking histamines.  whatever it is, i can eat many more/different foods.  i usually eat the same sort of food/meal every 3 days.  i was puzzled why i could eat something one day and be fine.  then eat the same thing the next day and not fine.  seems to be working i thought i had a problem with eggs bc i was eating them nearly every day for breakfast, but if i rotate it with cereal one day, a bagel or waffle or pancakes etc for day 2 then i can have eggs the third day as long as i go back to cereal the next day (for example) i can even tolerate fresh (and frozen lolz) fruit once every 3 days when i thought i couldn't tolerate fruit at all.  so long as i don't eat it tomorrow it's trial and error, and what works for one may not work for another.....  but this seems to be working for me.  right now lolz
