Dental Infection Gone Septic

Mar 25, 2008 - 2 comments

Three years ago I returned home from a very physical job and my knees and ankles were very swollen and warm to touch.  I could not climb my stairs.  I also had inability to use my left arm for severe weakness like a stroke would cause. I could not raise my left arm.  A pain specialist diagnosed thoracic outlet syndrome on scan and i had 3 years of chiro/dance/yoga/stretching and muscle stimulation therapy. I couldn't golf!!! This summer past my parotid glands blew out and I had always told dentist my jaw was very locked.  Root canal could not be done until infection abated.  I was on 7 different antibiotics without resolution.ANs? showed up in bloodwork and a arthritis Dr. queried SOJORS ARTHRITIS??? Lupus?? Told my body was eating itself as autoimmune disease.By Sept i had a serious lung infection coughing copious green and by oct had jaundice whereby my liver appeared infected.  I took LIV 42 natural supplement and jaundice disappeared.When I traced back my dental--I had a filling done 6 moths prior to first symptom and a white bony infected lump above where root canal and previous infected tooth were. I was very ill and today have infection still seeping out behind l ear and l jaw!!!  Dentist said dental infections usually are localized so felt not likely.  I asked if the infection can travel to ear/nose/throat and they said a tiny hole does exist to parotid glands.  I feel I have cysts all throughout my body since this infection.  I lost 30 lbs and have infection in all my vocal chords still and I am a singer and it gravely affected my vocal range as to high notes.I firmly believe because the symptoms were worse on L side of body--it was dental infection gone Septic.  What do you think???

Sounds like your right. I would definatly get a second opinion on the dental infection. I hope your feeling better soon!

An acute suppurative dental infection can have many consequences. It is most frequently incorrectly diagnosed, as medical clinicians have little awareness of what a dental infection might involve. Any sub mental, sub mandibular and retro molar  external infection, should be considered for possible dental origin, and there may not necessarily be a tooth present visually. The remnants of a broken tooth are frequently the cause of these infections, and sinus development. Intra orally, there is/maybe,  no indication. Treatment of the infection, and the sinus will fail until the dental pathology is addressed. .
