Can gum inflammation cause mild indigestion?

I've had some gum swelling/inflammation and I believe the pus drained out because the gum swelling is gone there is no more pain, but I've been having mild indigestion ever since, it's been 4 to 6 weeks now. Was it a gum infection that drained into my stomach? If it is an infection how do you treat it?

Hi, for the past 4 months I have been having pain on the left sift side of my face. My gums on that side are inflamed, my throat feel like there is something in it almost, headache , and tongue tingles. It is solely on the left side of my mouth. Would this be a wisdom tooth problem. I have been to a dentist and he said yes. I have an impacted wisdom tooth on that side that is laying horizontally as well as an ENT and she was not sure. The ENT looked in and around my ear, nose, and throat and said everything looked healthy. Would wisdom tooth cause those sort of problems???

I have a pain sensitivity in my upper left molar area. Dentist examined and found nothing. It feels like a gum inflamation and is sensitive to cold liquid..I am suspicious that it may be sinus related, as it hurts when I blow my nose to clear nasal congestion. It isn t constant, but feel it most of the time. Also hurts when I brush the gumline (pocket) on back side of the last molar. It has been approx 2-3 weeks since I saw dentist. Thanks.
