If someone got PATM after having a root canal then I would think that the antibiotics are the culprit, and not the procedure itself.
I watched it last night and it definitely made me think. There are a lot of unknowns in medicine and I think PATM is just one disease that falls in the realm of the unknown. There has to some root cause to what we are all experiencing, but I'm just not sure what that is. I've read through most of the posts and comments here. I've reviewed a spreadsheet of questions that many members answered years ago. I just can't find any sort of common past experience that links us all together. Maybe we should resurface a survey to try to find commonalities that may direct us to what caused PATM. This isn't going to be an easy quest without support from the medical community, but perhaps we can start to document more of what we are learning.
That documentary inspired me to make an appointment with a holistic doctor until she told me the price of the first visit ! $800 !!! Of course my insurance doesn’t accept holistic doctors. Bummer ! And I told the secretary about PATM, she must have thought I was crazy lol. She made me spell it and then she goes I’m not sure if I can help you but we can try :/
Yes I had a root canal done before PATM started.
Very interesting documentary with seemingly logical arguments. I did have a root canal many years ago. I will explore with my dentist.
