Hi. Ok so I have written a ton on here. I have issues left side both top & bottom. I have had tons of xrays & scans & yes my sinus has a cyst & a polyp & inflammation so I am getting sinus surgery to clean it out next month. I also have a cracked tooth on the bottom that has been root canaled & apicio. There was no infection when they went in however I want to get the tooth pulled bc I have a sensitive lower left jaw & feel pain at times underneath the tooth. Sometimes I feel it deeper like tooth behind it or even where my wisdom tooth was. So after 3 years I wonder could that crack be deeper? So that will be next month too.
I had tooth 12 extracted 2 years ago. So far it looks fine. I was told & read online it takes a while for things to show up on the X-ray with issues & bone loss. I had awful pain about 10 days after procedure then the following month nose pain. Now I would complain & day something is wrong but dentists blame the sinus & sinus blame the teeth. This is why I am getting the sinus cleaned bc once it is clear then no one can blame my sinus. I was told by my ent on my recent sinus scan that the swelling I have in my sinus in the tissues & polyp/cyst could cause pressure & pain. When I bend over I get the fullness feeling. So I know I do have a sinus issue. It OVERLAPS with my possible nerve or dental issue. So I get passed back n forth. So maybe it’s sinus but I get such pain above near the extraction site on the side of my nose. Also inside left nostril bad. I have been so nervous something different not heal right with the extraction. A collegian plug was put in & it dissolves after 30 days. The gum tissue & area seem fine. It did have contact with the sinus suppositly. I want someone to open the site up… but that’s hard to get someone to do unless evidence on X-ray is present.
I get this weird chill in my teeth on top at times. Not sure if it is sinus. I feel pressure in the back 2 teeth which I feel is sinus but I also get it under my nose in the teeth. It’s a freaky kinda of chill. I never had sinus issues before so it’s new to me. I feel like that last extraction is causing something. I hate this so bad. I hate not knowing what gives. I hate saying it’s nerve until I have evidence. I have tried nerve medicine not high dosage low. So I know maybe I need higher. I feel like after sinus procedure, maybe getting someone to open the site then I can feel ok with nerve. What if it is something with the bone? It gives me high anxiety!!! I did have a cone beam scan recently of that area. Nothing showed. But again things take time if it is a localized issue. Am I crazy?? A big yes!!
