My teeth have been sensitive for almost three months. I had a scan of my thyroid. It showed cysts on one side and a nodule on the other. Bloodwork on my thyroid is normal. My question is this--- can this be a cause of my sensitive teeth. They are driving me crazy! They really hurt. I would really appreciate someone's ideas on this. Thanks so much.
I'm not sure; I get very sensitive teeth from sinus inflammation .. my sinus cavities are very low and close to the roots so I get alot of pain and sensitivity as you describe but that is just me and my experience.
Have you tried an otc toothpaste like Sensodyne? Checked with your dentist? I would do that for sure as they are well versed inthryoid checks, too, etc.
Sometimes actually putting the paste directly on the affected teeth for a few days before bed helps.
