Tooth Pain

I have had on & off tooth pain for over a year in my left lower jaw & a bit of the upper. My dentist has said twice there are no dental problems. I have also had high blood pressure for bout the same time. I ve been under a termendous amount of stress as well & have extra weight on. Is there any way this on and off tooth pain can be a heart condition and if so what kinds? If so and i need t see a doctor what kiind of test should i be asking for. Thank you.

Did the dentist do an x-ray to see if there is a sinus infection? I had that problem a few years back, I begged the dentist to remove an aching tooth but an x-ray revealed a pocket of infection compressing the nerves under the tooth.

If you continue to have pain and the dentist can find nothing wrong, you may ask about the possibility of trigeminal neuralgia as the cause.   This is pain caused by one of the cranial nerves.  Your dentist should know something about it but it is treated by a neurologist.

Here's a link to more information.  There is a link to a diagnostic questionnaire from there.
