I had what seems to be a bad sinus infection for a few days. Headaches, my teeth hurt, etc.
I felt what I thought was a hard pimple on the roof of my mouth. It seemed to go down a bit, assessed by my tongue. Today I went to feel it with my finger and it's like a hard and boney spot.
Could this be a result from the sinus infection? From what I've read it sounds like what's called a TORUS? It seems strange that this would pop up at the same time I'm having what I believe is a sinus infection.
I didn't take anything for the sinuses besides Tylenol. My teeth are still sensitive and this "bump" isn't going away. Anything to worry about?
I do not this bump came from the sinus infection. A torus is a normal out growth of bone and usually occurs on the palate and on the inside of the lower jaw.That being said a visit to your dentist or an oral surgeon to get a definitive diagnosis is necessary.
