On March 3, I suddenly had mouth ulcer (may be due to fish bone). Then the doctor gave antibiotic for it. And after 2 days I had chill shiver and the next I had body rash covering my chest at ist and den face back and abdomen and hand and also legs and itchy rash with swollen lymph nodes near my ear. The swollen became normal within a week. From then I used to feel tired at times I used to have muscle twitched with localised body heats in different parts. Then I had pain in my muscles and joint which now became normal. And I have thus often, tightness feel in throat which goes away. But one thing was common, the tiredness, its always the same till now with muscle pain near the top right and left corners of my chest. In bright sunlight I have blurry visions. I showed doctor twice and and had to do cbc test, RA, widal test, urine test, hepatitis test which all came normal. All tests was done 4 months ago. Recently I did ANA test which came 1: 64 as negative. I just do not know why this malaise is not going. And yesterday I did CBC again. Where everything was fine and healthy except two. RBC count was 6.10 in the range 4.50-5.50 and MCV was low as 79 in the range 80-100 and the same thing was in earlier cbc test but one of the physician I showed, he said its normal.

You are faving these problems due to anaemia as your hemoglobin is low. And the rash you had may due to antibiotic that you took you may be having unknown allergy of that drug. For other problems I will suggest you to go and see any good physician so he can give you right medication for anaemia. Once your anaemia is cured your problem will be solved.

Experiencing a burning sensation in your mouth or on your tongue without? hot food? to blame? there is a condition that can cause your mouth to burn for no apparent reason. Burning mouth syndrome, or burning tongue syndrome, is an annoyingly painful problem that may have you feeling a scalding sensation without a source for its cause. This painful burning sensation may linger for a long time, be constant or come and go. In many cases, the burning builds during the day and dies down at night. The group most commonly afflicted are middle to older aged women. Your burning mouth or tongue syndrome might come with other symptoms on top of a burning sensation, such as: dry mouth bad taste ~ bitter, metallic tongue tip tingling, numbness numbness, tingling in your mouth possible causes of your burning mouth or tongue include: acid reflux medication malnutrition food allergies nerve damage oral candidiasis anxiety, depression hormonal changes ~ menopause dentures ~ ill-fitting, material allergy dry mouth ~ sj?gren? s syndrome, diabetes, thyroid problems for many, the exact cause of their burning sensation symptoms isn? t found. Your mouth burning treatment may depend on the cause of symptoms, provided you can discover this. Thus, treating underlining cause usually resolves your burning symptoms. Otherwise, unidentified cause for burning mouth or tongue syndrome treatment is geared toward associated pain relief. Some natural healthy ideas that may assist in this challenge: sip water suck on ice no alcohol, tobacco chew sugarless gum avoid hot, spicy foods brush with baking soda and water use capsaicin (hot pepper) mouth rinses do not use alcohol containing mouthwashes reduce consumption of acidic foods ~ citrus.

Hi doctor. I have gum pain from last 3 weeks. it bleed sometimes as well, please give advise?
We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with surgical, gum strengthening procedure. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.

Diabetes and Dental Health

Dentist, Gurgaon
Diabetes and Dental Health

Diabetes is a degenerative disease, which affects your metabolism. As a result of metabolic irregularities, every part of the body is affected. The following are early indications of untreated diabetes:

  • Increased thirst
  • Increased urination
  • Increased hunger

In addition to the ones above, the following are associated symptoms:

  • Blurred vision
  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Slow healing of cuts
  • Itchy skin

How can diabetes affect your mouth?

  • Diabetes increases the risk of infections and delayed regeneration of damaged/dead cells. As a result, fungal infections like thrush may develop in your mouth.
  • Because of poor healing of wounds as a result of diabetes, extensive gum damage may occur.
  • Periodontitis is a severe effect of diabetes in which your gums begin to move away from your teeth, leading to a formation of pockets between your gums and teeth, which fill up with pus and germs. The damage can be stopped only with gum surgery and removal of affected teeth.

Prevention

The single most effective way to prevent damage to your teeth is to actively control blood sugar content by regularly taking medicines and following a healthy diet recommended by your doctor. Common methods of dental protection go a long way to help prevent oral problems because of diabetes. These include:

  • Brush thoroughly and carefully after every meal (wait 30 minutes for food acids to neutralize, and then brush as this helps in effective cleaning)
  • Use non-alcoholic mouthwash to treat dry mouth and disinfect the oral cavity
  • Floss at least once everyday
  • Use a soft bristled toothbrush
  • Remove your dentures and clean them regularly. Do not sleep putting them on
  • Quit smoking, chewing tobacco and chewing gums with sugar in them

Hello, Bleeding from gums and bad breath could be because of deposits on your teeth and food lodged in between your teeth. You need to visit the dentist and get a deep scaling and polishing done. Brush twice a day. Maintain proper brushing technique. Rinse after every meal. Floss regularly.

BDS
Dentist, Gurgaon
Dear lybrate user, tongue infection/inflammation/burning can be due to several reasons like dry mouth, nutritional/vitamin deficiencies, bacterial/viral/fungal infections, anemia, dehydration etc. Consult your dentist for a checkup to know the exact cause. Drink plenty of fluids and water, consume fruits and vegetables, avoid fried & spicy foods and pay attention to good oral hygiene.

If you hav all your tests done and everything is negative. Then the two commonest reason should not be overlooked. Mouth ulcers can also be due to gastro disturbance. Please take care of your food intake. As you have mentioned, you have kidney stones now, I guess your food intake is not healthy. Change your food habit and inculcate lot of vitamin b complex in food. Sometimes dangerous diseases are given so importance that the minor reasons are missed. Take care.
