Sorry for all your pain, sounds alot like multiple chemical sensitivity disorder, but in just the we bit I have read am. thinking this could be related to mast cells, just don’t kniw enough about that. Just watched an interesting youtube video called my “mystery symptoms and mast cells” One woman in this video has many similar symptoms as you.
Hang in there!
I always crave sugar when my pain is worse, but have just assumed that is because that is how I learned early on to comfort myself, by using food.vHowever, I have also read that sugar acts on the opiate receptors inthe brain, so can make you temporarily feel better. As sugar is known to aggravate inflamation, induce premature aging and a host of other ills,it is most likely better avoided or consumed in moderation. Need to take my own advice, have become quite the sugar addict!!
Agree totally with dog, check with your doctor or get a second opinion from another dentist, or better yet an oral surgeon.
