Infection and headaches?
I have an infection in tooth #18. I have headaches and muscle aches/pains. Could this be due to the infection?
It very well could be. It's best to see your dentist right away and get the infection taken care of. Once the infection is taken care of, then you will know if that was the cause of your headaches, muscles aches, and pains.
