I have had a constant throbbing in my gums since about the age of 11. This occured when my family moved from Key West to Georgia. Prior to that I had reoccuring gum boils that my mother treated with Vismoth-violet. I do not know if the two could be connected or were totally seperate issues. I only know that when we moved I no longer got the gum boils, but the gum throbbing began. It is constant 24/7 and occasionally my cheek will swell. I have had a turbinate reduction hoping to releive this but it did not work. I have been to general dentists, orthodontists, neurologists, peridontists, ENT and no one has ever heard of these symptoms. One general dentist said that he had read an article about it in the American Journal of Medicine, and tried to find the article for me but was unsuccessful.
