Question: The last 2 times I had dental fillings, one upper then few days later one lower, my hard palate felt like there was fluid under the surface a few hours later then developed liquid filled cyst on opposite side of my mouth from dental work (above molars inside upper part of mouth which got so large second time it broke open and I has a very sore raw area there for 2 weeks.
Any ideas what caused this? Did not happen again when I went for a cleaning but I need a filling and concerned it will happen again.

Hi,

Thanks for your query.

I would like to know if you were on any medication during that period, as an ulcer / cyst can occur due to some medicines. Cyst on the opposite side of mouth sounds unusual as, if there is a reaction to the filling then it should be on the same side.

Still, the chances of you having another cyst because of a filling are rare.

If all your symptoms are resolved, you need not be concerned. I would suggest you to visit a dentist for a full mouth X-ray to diagnose the reason for the cyst if symptoms recur.

Hope this answers your query. Do let us know if you have any more queries.

Regards

I may have been on Voltaren topical gel for a frozen shoulder.
I have a coworker an RN who worked for a dental surgeon and she thought the dental anesthetic may have gone into a duct instead of just the surrounding tissue and caused the fluid under the hard palate and fluid filled boil on the other side of my mouth. What do you think, is that possible? The second tooth I had done sis not feel like it was frozen at all.

Hi,
Thanks for writing back.

No, it sounds very improbable for the fluid to enter any duct and cause a cyst on the opposite side of the mouth. Maybe you had a reaction to some drug but i do not think that you should worry about it. I am certain your filling will go uneventful.

If possible you can start with a multivitamin for some time as it will help you increase your body resistance.

If you have any more queries do let us know.

Hi I have a question about my Father he is 83 a couple of monthe s ago he fell and broke his neck ,he was at home with no treatment for a week and his GP just gave him painkillers for the awful pain,however as he did not improve he was fianally admitted to hospital x-rayed and diagnosed with a broken neck, and now has a collar to keep his neck stable.This has been on now for 6 weeks,he was x -rayed last week and they said it wasnt healing and he would need a CT the results of the CT were good and they now say he can have the neck brace off in 2 weeks . He was very pleased but ,is very distressed as he has suddenly become very deaf and has what he thinks are chilblains on his ear,also hes become extemely forgetful since all this happened, and has bad headaches and feels very unwell.He is seeing his GP again this week ,I wondered if you have any idea if his symptoms are connected with his broken neck ,and also can mistakes be made by a doctor when reading a ct scan ? Its very difficult for me as I live in Japan and my father in the UK, Thank you for any advice you can give me,from Shirley My father is 83 about 11stone has oestioporosis,and a history of broken bones.

Am querying current line of thinking by several consultants. Admitted to hospital May 2011; lumbar puncture showed elevated CSF protein of 1088 mg/L with 228 white cells, 95% lymphocytes. The working diagnosis was viral meningitis, and I was discharged after 2 days aciclovir. Negative for herpes simplex virus 1 and 2. Developed infection in leg early October 2011, followed by painful groin, then ulcers either side of scrotum - non painful, and diagnosed as shingles. Mid October 2011, following tinitus, buzzing , hearing different frequencies, then vertigo, admitted for 2 weeks in ID ward...CSF showed 614 white cells with 90% lymphocytosis. CSF protein raised at 1335 mg/L. Tested for everything under the sun, incl. HIV, syphillis, Lyme disease, Cat scratch fever (leg infection thought to have been through an insect bite). All negative, incl. ANA. Chest x-ray, MRI scan of brain and whole spine also negative. Admitted again 26th December 2011, aciclovir for seven days, now back home feeling well, if a little tired. Current thought is Mollarets meningitis, but more recently, rheumatology dept. thinking Behcets syndrome, as I suffer from mouth ulcers. My contention is this; I have sufferd from mouth ulcers since a teenager taking exams at school. If I have a job interview, I will get mouth ulcers after @ 48 hours. Dentist thinks stress induced, as do I. I have no aching joints and no eye irritation, also, just found out that HLAB51 negative. I am a 42 year old British male and caucasian. I can t help feeling there s a square peg being pushed into a round hole here. What about migraine; the tinitus, buzzing and vertigo? Also, I took a non-steroidal (Ibuprofen) prior to the first two episodes. Bickerstaff s encephalitis sounds just as plausible as Behcets...or am I in denial? I would appreciate any advice, even if it s to simply face the music . Thank you for your time.

I have had this cough since january. It won't go away!! it goes and comes back. Drinking warm foods keeps it at bay but do i seriously have to carry a mug of hot water mixed with ginger around all day everyday? I stopped working out to give my body a rest. I got an x-ray and nothing showed up. I was given antibiotics because the I got a bacterial infection which is unrelated to my cough. My promary care physician gave me xopenex thinking it was workout induced asthma. It is not. It has been six months and I have lost around 10 pounds of muscle mass. I am studying for my MCAT which is in 3 weeks and I am always coughing while I study. It is very annoying and no one knows what is wrong.
