I have fybromyalgia. Recently, my teeth are just falling apart and out. Does fybromyalgia do this or possibly lupus?
I have all the disorders thata go with fybromyalgia--colon problems, fatigue, sleep disturbances, restless legs, etc...
I dont know but I have fybromyalgia and i've expierenced the same problem with my teeth . I think its because its hard to keep up with proper regular brushing when your in so much pain allt he time plus nutrition when your tired sick and sore all the time . God Bless You My Friend
I have Addisons, Hypothyroism, Osteoarthritis, Osteoporosis Mitral valve prolapse with regurg, & Fibro. Pain effects me daily. What is the new drug Savella? Do you think it is advisable me working as a 1:1 home health peds nurse?
Gum disease coincides with alot of inflammatory diseases. Do your best at home with brushing (at least 2 min) flossing daily and using Listerine for a full 30sec. Make sure you are getting your teeth cleaned every 3 months and if you need to see a perio DDS make sure you do!
I have Fibro and lost most of my teeth 2 yrs ago,i have a false upper set and 5 false on the bottom. My teeth started getting bad when i got ill falling out or breaking but i thought it was the morphine as i have been on it for years but after reading here maybe it is the illness.
Sometimes too little saliva can contribute to tooth decay... as with Sjogren's which can indeed be secondary to Lupus and other things. Both can have long drawn out diagnoses. Definitely keep track of this stuff and mention it to doctors to build a record up. The pieces might fit together eventually. If there are some of the other signs/symptoms, document them too, even if they don't yet fit a "diagnostic criteria".
If you happen to have a sense of low tear & saliva flow, they can be measured.
"Sjogren's syndrome symptoms frequently overlap with or 'mimic' those of other diseases including lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and multiple sclerosis. Dryness can also occur for other reasons, such as a side effect of medications such as anti-depressants and high blood pressure medication."
