Posted on Wed, 26 Sep 2018
Question: I have about 4 or 5 teeth that need to be removed, all wisdom teeth, and the main one on the left bottom of my mouth is my biggest concern. For the last couple years I've experienced pain and pressure in the left chest area, all test said I'm fine. But more recently I've added knee pain, left side torso pain, left shoulder pain at the joint, swelling, numbness, and tingling of the left side of my upper lip, pain in the heel of my left foot, mild cold and occasional headaches.

Brief Answer:
Your other symptoms are not appearing related to teeth

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
Thanks for writing to us.

Well the symptoms of numbness, swelling and tingling of cheek can be due to the wisdom tooth causing inflammation of the nerve endings.

Also the cold and headache can be related to the sinus infection or sinusitis.
It can also be due to seasonal allergies.

But the other symptoms that you have mentioned are not appearing to be due to tooth related problem.
It can be due to gastric problem.

So once get checked by a General Physician.

However I do not think there is any problems getting teeth removed but better to be on a safer side.
So get clinically checked once.

Also it will be better if you get wisdom teeth pulled by an Oral surgeon.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards.

The numbness tingling and swelling is in my lip, specifically on the upper lip only the left side. The concerning part is that all the symptoms seem to be on the left side. My lip has been gradually swelling over a week or so. You can barely tell unless you really look but of course I noticed it. I will schedule an appointment.

Hi.
Yes you should get clinically checked.
However the swelling and numbness of lip is probably due to the wisdom tooth only.
