fibro and gum problems
4 Replies
jrzgirl1 - July 3

lately my mouth has been so dry and I have in the past had bleeding gums but now it seems worse, could the fibro have been the cause all the long. I have a permanent top bridge and there is metal in the back of it, maybe I have had fibro longer than I thought. I had my gums scraped twice in 2 yrs, I have NO dental coverage, should I ask my dentist if there is
any relationship between the fibro,metal and gum problems?

Are you on Lyrica? I was just prescribe and my dentist said watch out for dry mouth side effect -it can cause alot of dental problems when the body doesn't produce the saliva need to take care of the teeth and gums as nature intended. I have only been on for a few days, so I don't have first hand experience yet, just the dentists heads-up to watch out for.

I myself have also had many troubles with dry mouth and my gums... I have had mine scraped once, and I need to go every three months for a cleaning, and still have lots of pockets at 4mm ugh.... I take impeccable care of my teeth, I was raised thay way, and yet all these problems... My doc told me that it was a good chance that the fibro hurt my gums chances of fighting back... hope you find some relief!

hi jrzgirl1, i have been having some problem. bleeding gums and very dry throat and mouth finding it hard to swallow and my voice tends to cut out a bit. very sensitive gums real stingy at times. i was wondering about it myself but wasnt sure to put it down to fibro. it seems fibro covers every little complaint from ridges in fingers nails to mood swings. i dont take anything either except xanax to knock me out at night.
