Can having bad teeth cause your neck to hurt?
i have been having really bad neck pain, i cant turn my head to either side with out it sending pain right up to the back of my head. it doesnt hurt down my back or anything so the only thing i can think that could be making it hurt is my cavities. I recently lost my insurence and cant get my teeth fixed and they are pretty bad. do you think this could be from that? or maybe its just strained? thanks for your help.

Yes. The dermatones of your skin are sensitive to what is going on inside your body (this is why "your tummy hurts"). However, this usually results in a constant ache. If you are feeling isolated pain resulting from movement, then you probably did something to your neck. Strain of the neck muscles can occur without you even realizing it. Most times it results from "sleeping the wrong way". Neck and Jaw pain can also be a result of a Myocardial Infarction. If you choose to try to resolve this yourself, try taking Motrin and limiting sudden head movements. If it doesn't feel better within 24 hours... go to the Dr.

well i dont know but feel on the side of your neck and rub in little circles those are limphnodes...they could be causing pain i guess Bad teeth, and especially a bad bite, can cause all sorts of problems. Headaches, neck pain, migraines, jaw pain, even sometimes back pain can often be linked to a bad bite. or this artical Your head and neck region is vulnerable to many different stresses. Bad posture can cause misalignment of your neck, head, and spine. Car accidents can cause whiplash. Age and wear and tear can cause arthritis. Even activities such as gum chewing and reading in bed can cause pain. How do we avoid these potential problems? And if we can't avoid them, how can we recover as quickly as possible? In this article you will learn about: The basic anatomy of the neck region; Common reasons for neck pain and headaches; Ways to reduce stress and the risk of injury; Exercises to do at home; and How a physical therapist can help. Whatever the nature of your problem, physical therapy by a licensed physical therapist can often help you recover function quickly and teach you new habits to minimize the risk of further pain or injury. Anatomy Of The Neck Region One of the most flexible regions of the spine is the neck (cervical) region, which consists of vertebrae, seven shock-absorbing discs, muscles, and vertebral ligaments to hold them in place. The uppermost cervical disc connects the top of the spinal column to the base of the skull. The spinal cord, which sends nerve impulses to every part of the body, runs through a canal in the the cervical vertebrae and continues all the way down the spine. The cervical nerves spread down into the arms; because of this, arm pain is sometimes traceable to a problem in the neck. Possible Causes Of Neck Pain And Headaches One of the most common causes of neck pain, and sometimes headaches, is poor posture. It's easy to get into bad posture habits without even realizing it-even an activity as "innocent" as reading in bed can ultimately lead to pain, headaches, and more serious problems. The basic rule is simple: keep your neck in a "neutral" position whenever possible. In other words, don't bend or hunch your neck forward for long periods. Also, try not to sit in one position for a long time. If you must sit for an extended period, make sure your posture is good: Keep your head in a neutral position, make sure your back is supported, keep your knees slightly lower than your hips, and rest your arms if possible. Reading in bed can cause neck strain- especially if you're propped up on several pillows, bending your neck forward, and trying to hold your arms out in order to support the book. If you do read in bed, make it easy on your neck: Consider purchasing one of the products specifically designed for this purpose, such as a wedge pillow to prop up the book or a portable "mini desk." Finally, remember not to stay in any single position too long- our bodies are designed to move. Your sleeping position is another possible source of neck problems. Does your pillow cause you to sleep with your neck at an angle, either too high or too low? If so, you may want to invest in a new pillow. Feather pillows are generally preferable to foam; they conform easily to the shape of the neck. Also, remember that pillows don't last forever. After a year or so feather pillows tend to "collapse" and may need to be replaced. In addition, a bed that doesn't offer enough back support can also be a source of neck discomfort. Here are some other tips to help you avoid neck strain and pain: Try doing stretching exercises before bed and first thing in the morning; Don't sleep on your stomach-this position puts great pressure on the neck; and Don't "over-pillow" your neck; keep your neck and spine in a neutral position. The neutral position rule also holds true for people who spend time working at computer terminals. Again, don't bend your neck forward. Adjust your desk, monitor, and chair to a comfortable height, so that the monitor is at eye level and your knees are slightly lower than your hips. Some people find that a footstool helps in attaining this correct position. Sit close enough to the monitor so that you don't have to bend forward in order to see well. Use the chair's armrests-your arms need support. Wear your eyeglasses if necessary. Consult your physical therapist to find the set-up that is right for you. You should also follow the neutral position rule when driving a car. Adjust the seat to bring you close enough to the pedals so that you don't have to extend your neck forward. Proper Lifting Technique Another cause of neck pain is poor lifting technique. People often think of the lower back as the area at risk, but the cervical region is nearly as vulnerable. Here is the correct way to lift: Stand up straight, close to the object; Bend at your hips and knees, keeping your back in the neutral pos

yes bad teeth can cause neck pain, but that usually only happens with extreme teeth problems, like an overbite or bones being grown in wrong. So i dont know if that is why you have neck pain, Some times people have neck pain when they are stressed, the more stressed you are the more neck pain you will have.

While there is no direct correlation I can tell you that there are conditions where your teeth can cause your neck to hurt. In my case it is a wisdom tooth that grew backward into my jaw. That sometimes sent shooting pain down my neck. It probably is hitting a nerve that extends down the neck. It also caused lockjaw. In any case your best bet is a doctor. If the doctor thinks it is due to bad teeth he will send you to a dentist for an exam. As for the cost don't let a lack of insurance prevent you from getting this taken care of. Some things are more important than money. Money can always be replaced but your health cannot.

Bad teeth can definitely cause your neck to hurt - but usually it's because the teeth are misaligned, which causes your jaw to close unevenly (this can damage your jaw joints over time), or maybe because you may be grinding your teeth while you sleep. Not sure about cavities though. Hopefully you can get some insurance again soon, and when you do, mention it to your dentist and ask for a referral to a specialist in jaw-related pain. I did, and it totally helped me! Now I don't have headaches or neck pain anymore. It sounds like your pain is really immobilizing - is there a free clinic you can go to? Good luck!

I don't know about that thoe

not nessisarily bad teeth but an over bite or jaw issues could have something to do with it. it will give you killer headaches as well see an orthodontis or chiropractor

definatly not

rob j
no i dont think so

no but you may be straining your neck..your teeth can alter your overall health but it is most likely not causing the pain you are experiencing. consult a physician for this problem

Swift Night
I think that you probably just have a strain. I am not a doctor but my dad is and it is probably just a strain.

go see the doctor...

Sean M
LOL, you don't even need to know that they have no correlation to each other hurting.

I am pretty positive it has nothing to do with your teeth. It sounds like a bad strain. Feel the area (or have a friend) for signs of inflammation: heat, warmth, etc. Use ice on it & take some anti-inflammatories (Aspirin, etc) to reduce swelling. That will relieve the pain. Good luck!
