So I have been dealing with facial/dental discomfort since February after being diagnosed with gingovastitis (viral gum infection).By the time I saw the dentist I was pretty worked up with anxiety and needed two clonazepam just to go to the appointment. Turned out the infection was healing...and there was no need to prescribe antibiotics. The dentist said the nervy pains to my teeth was coming from my infamed gum tissue. FAST FORWARD.... I felt relieved for a bit but the pain continued. Then I obsessively wondered what he might have missed since he didnt xray. I am fairly regular with dental visits and have had several xrays in the last two years. But still I fretted. Then I started to revisit the TMS practise. I thought teeth didnt count for some reason... so....I have had pain free days, followed by complete confidence in TMS and then it comes back and its like I need reasurrance again. It also went into elbow pain, leg pain and know back to dental pain. My question is...I booked a dentist appointment with my usual dentist since at last I can. I told the receptionist the visit is for a cleaning and check up. I dont want to tell my dentist about the weird symptoms in case it starts some bullshit investigative stuff that makes everything worse. I figure an x ray and cleaning and check up should rule out any problems and give me that last 5% push that I need for complete acceptance. I just cant handle any scary labels...but I cant handle thinking it might be a rogue wisdom tooth root growing into my sinus cavity or something equally ridiculous...argggg Is wanting more proof that it is not structural productive to healing or am I fooling myself and caught up again in an obsessive loop? I do need a cleaning however at some point...but do I stay silent about my symptoms?
