Really scared - mouth ulcer that won't heal
« on: December 28, 2013, 04:20:02 AM »
Please someone help me. I am terrified. Hear me out:

In January I woke up with intense pain in my mouth. I thought it was toothache it was so painful. I got emergency dentist app and he said it was a cut on my gum. Gave me antibiotics and away I went.

The pain went away and I forgot all about it. Until then other week which is when I put my tongue up to see it and felt the little cut.

It looks like a tiny ulcer and now I am so scared I have ca because I have the following symptoms:

Ulcer that not healed
Sore neck
Sore ear
Something feels stuck at back of throat.

The little ulcer is right up top of gum and fold of the cheek.

I went to the dentist last week about it and the ulcer is so difficult to find that the dentist didn't see it. But it's definitely there. Anyway he took X-rays and said he thought it was an abscess although not certain which out of two teeth it is. So I have to get a panoramic X-ray on 31.

Now I am very scared as I think it's maybe actually scc. I feel sick with fear.

Normal to feel a bit of fear and think the worse at times like this. But you have taken the right steps. You are getting it treated. Which means things will get better for you. It is just the wait that has more worried than anything else. Don't keep touching it with your tongue. Maybe ask at your local chemist about something you can rinse your mouth out with to keep the cut clean. So you are fully aware you are doing all you can until the day you go to have it looked at. You will be fine.

I get ulcers in my mouth when I'm very stressed out and it takes them forever to go away, or when they go away another one pops up. Stress can cause a lot of physical symptoms! Try a salt gargle or a mouthwash like Cuchulan suggested, and if it will ease your mind make an appointment with a doctor or dentist. Hope you feel better soon!
