Tooth infection. Have tummy cramps like period cramps. Am I okay?

I have been very ill the past 2 days , I think the main cause is my tooth which I think may have infection , I have dentist app tomo but I ve been so exhausted I ve not left the house for 2 days and have slept for hours . This evening I had a awful time trying to go to the toilet , its happened several times in the past but this must be the worst of all and its just happened a second time this evening . The worst part is when i nearly pass out ( mum has same thing and used to pass out a lot from it). I get extremely painful tummy cramps similar to period pains and I start burn up and sweat buckets then get really nauseus after 15 20 mins it passes but I m left exhausted by it , do u have any idea what it could be ?

first of all , if you have tooth infection, visit your dentist as soon as possible.because some diseases are also due to tooth infections also.The problems you told me it may be due to tooth infection. i advice , you have to take antibiotics for temporary treatment. also you can take antacid for relief your tummy cramps .. also visit to your general physicians

Have a nice time... take care

It is very unusual for a tooth infection to cause the symptoms that you have mentioned. Ideally a dental problem does not cause stomach cramps or loss of conciousness or evn nausea.Perhaps you are taking some medicines to reduce the infection or pain which may have side effects resulting in your present condition. if you are not under any medication then i strongly recommend that you visit a physician also as it may not be related to your dental problem.

Dear kla82

You need to contact physician immediately, the tooth infection may not be likely cause for your symptoms. Looks like you need a course of antibiotics which can also reduce infection in teeth. Once infection is reduced you can get appropriate dental treatment done.
