Tooth ache, frightened about angina or heart attack
« on: December 11, 2012, 02:34:57 AM »
I came back from exercising tonight and have had a sensitive tooth feeling. When I looked it up, it said this is a possible symptom of angina or a heart attack warning. WTF. Now I'm freaking out. I did have my heart checked from anxiety in June, and the EKG, blood work, blood pressure and o2 turned out perfect. But google said sometimes tooth ache is the only symptom of a heart attack. I am over weight and worry about this often. Anyone reading this and can offer me advice

I've been known to clench my jaw while exercising. Maybe you did the same. I am sure you are not suffering from whatever you googled. Your teeth and heart are probably just fine :)

I will endure any pain, as long as it has meaning.

If your heart was checked out, I would not worry. If the tooth ache becomes unbearable, than I
would call the dentist.

Highly doubt its a heart attack ....teeth are a pain....but i agree if it persists than Call you're dentist.... Google is not a good source when you have health anxiety everything is a heart attack....feel better

Yup.  To a person with a hammer everything looks like a nail.

I think you are making a huge jump from something that is pretty benign to something quite serious ..... HIGHLY doubt it is heart-related at all.  If it persists, see your dentist.

I had pain in my lower jaw/tooth on and off for a few months. Then one day I ate a Popsicle and my tooth just exploded with agonizing pain that went into my ear. It was horrific. Turned out it was an abscessed tooth. I had to find a dentist to clean it out and had to have a root canal. I had been worrying it was heart but the dentist said the pain I'd been feeling was the nerve in my tooth slowly dying.
