I got a deep filling done in November 2010 and since then has severe pain when pressure was applied to this particular tooth. I got my bite filled down numerous times but that didn't help. I went to an endodontist 4 months later and he said that the nerve was probably dying and decaying onto the bone underneath my tooth, this is why there is a sensitivity to pressure. Ever since I got the filling, I've experienced episodes of faint-headedness, dizziness, and vertigo that is very scary. It's usually when I am sitting down (luckily). It has gotten worse over time.
I thought it was due to anxiety attacks/panic attacks because it USUALLY happened when I was sitting in school or in group therapy settings (I'm a counseling student). I have talked to a therapist and been prescribed a benzo to take as needed ie: group settings. Last night I made the connection between my dentistry work and my dizziness type symptoms. I'm wondering if psychologically I was somehow allowing this dizziness to effect me during certain times. Or maybe it is how I sit in these settings that is promoting dizziness/vertigo. At home, I usually sit with my legs propped up or cross legged.
I'm scheduled for a root canal tomorrow and am very very very hopefully this is the cause, and it's not some psychological reason which will take more effort to understand and manage.
