Started to have problems when I first started on the Mex but told to increase folic from 5mg a week to every other day and now I'm OK - (I take 20mg mex a week)
Grinding teeth I think in my sleep as they feel 'different' to how they used to feel but avoiding the dentist in case its more bad news!!

Lisa no 1, thanks for your reply I will up my folic acid also to every other day, im on 17.5 mex and enbrel injections, I also grind my teeth and that makes the tops of the teeth so ssensitive too!!...got a mouth guard, but its like wearing another set teeth at night LOL...I, far too scared to avoid the dentist, this pain has been Unbearable and my chin is still numb from the absesses, and infections still there, have got another weeks antibiotics!....

Lisa(other one) Blimey, I wont worry anymore then!!! LOL... Im young too, altho a touch older than you, but try and go, cos the infections are so painful!

take care girls

Love Jill x
