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.

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.

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.

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 rolled my right ankle about 4 weeks ago. After about 2-3 weeks of rest and icing my right ankle, it felt pretty good. Good enough to start jogging again. I could walk and jog with no pain. On the forth week I tried to get back into soccer. Before the game I laced up my shoes and ankle brace then stood straight up to go for a jog. Immediately when I stood up I noticed a sharp ripping pain, across the bottom of my shin maybe near the top of the extensor tendons (if that s the right name for it, the tendon attached to the tibia), moving from the outside to the inside of my foot. I tried loosening the ankle brace but still the ripping pain continued when I stood up. I completely loosened the ankle brace and the ripping pain left and I could jog again. I decided not to play and started to examine the pain. The ripping pain only occurs when I over-extend my right leg or when I am standing/extending my leg and touch/grab my lower shin/upper ankle area. I had an X-Ray done on my lower leg/ankle but I haven t heard back from the doctor so I figured there wasn t any issues with my bones or ligaments. That leads me to believe it is a partial tear(s) in the muscle or tendon. Could you please give me a general idea if I need to have it surgically repaired or will I be able to continue resting and wait it out and eventually it will heal properly all on its own?
