Smile Frankenstein Meets Godzilla

Or should I say, The Marlboro Man meets the Dentist. It frosts my socks that " experts " ( in their field ) try and push goods and services that are unhealthy. How can a dentist put amalgams ( Mercury alone is toxic. Together with zinc it is many times more toxic. Add in a little copper and silver, as in dental amalgam fillings and the detrimental affects to the body increases many fold----quote from Dietrich Klinghardt, MD PhD) in a patient's mouth, get paid for it and think that he is performing a great service?? Would the dentist let his/her child play with toys that come from manufacturers that are known to add toxins to their ingredients????

Oh I can relate - especially after the past week. I haven't seen a conventional medical doctor for...9 years? But I do see a dentist every 6 months (I have one filling and one root canal). Around Xmas I started getting an aching, wounded sensation in the area of the root canal and finally saw my dentist last week, who "thought" he saw a root canal infection on my X-rays. He gave me a prescription for the antibiotic Clindamycin and told me to start taking it that day, then had me go to a root canal specialist later that day. So I took 2 Clindamycin (antibiotic) as stated on the bottle and then went to the appointment with the root canal guy. He manipulated my jaw, neck, took digital X-rays (I had 4 X-rays in one day) and said he wanted me to not take any more Clindamycin to see "if the infection gets worse to confirm a problem." So that evening my face begins feeling like it's burning - I get more and more uncomfortable, go to bed, somehow sleep a little and then I wake up with my eyes completely shut and a burning red face and neck! Dunno if it's the antibiotic or the dentists' gloves or all the X-rays, since it's only on my face/neck. The advice nurse with our health insurance tells me to take Claricidin (?), Benedryl - I called both dentists to tell them about my reaction, which, 5 days later, has progressed down my body to my entire torso, and continues to burn and itch like mad. Good news: my face now looks like I have a slight tan and my eyes are back to normal. Last night on the program Medical Incredible was the story of a young woman with a sinus infection who took a prescribed antibiotic at bedtime and woke up with toxic epidermic necrolysis. She ended up losing 100% of her skin, her corneas, etc. Her ER doc said she had only a 10% chance of survival, and the Burn Unit in the ER worked on her for months 24/7 - this whole experience has left me so leery of ANY conventional meds. So how do you know you've got a problem with a med until it nearly destroys you? Why would an antibiotic burn me? And now I am bummed out by dentists as well as doctors...

Karen oooo - this is post #1,000 for me!

Congrats on your 1000 post!!!

I think on the old BT I reached 1000 - maybe not.

Sorry to hear about your reaction - scary. Glad you are getting better.
