Heres another wierd question. Has anyone noticed teeth sensitivity at all. My teeth have suddenly become sensetive. Could be coincidence, probobly is but I of course am wondering if it could be nerve related. barb

I can tell you for sure - teeth sensitivity is NOT a sign of ALS :mrgreen:

Are you taking as good care of your teeth as before? I ask because, I used to religiously floss everyday and now I am flossing a couple times a week because I get into that "Why bother?" mindset.

I thought that was really weird, I mean it is, but anyway another poster on another forum said something very similar.

So, if you are not taking as good of care of your teeth as usual you may feel the effects of that.

I just went for a cleaning about two months ago and the computer was wdown and they could not take the xrays. I was supposed to call and reschedule but I didn't. (figuring why bother) So, then they called and my husband asked why I didn't go have the xrays done and he was po'ed.

As you said in another post, this is effecting my marriage too.

every thing that I say is lyme related, I had the sensitive teeth as well and it sound like your cranial nerves are bieng affected, if you think it is lyme get checked and if not go to a neuro that something that needs to be checked out!

I was tested for lyme a while ago and it came back clear. I had a neuro appointment and am going back for a emg the 8th. Why do you say that is something that needs to be checked out. Barb

lyme test are not accurate

it seems that you have been having problems for some time. skip the test and ask for doxy for two weeks at a high dose and see if you respond. if you dont then you dont have it. its your health,doctors are ignorant and will mess you up big time.find a lyme literate doctor it sounds like the nerves are inflamed!
