After reading about long term after effects of root canals, I consulted with Dr. Rehme. I had generalized pain in my bones, muscles and joints, in my feet, hands and elbows. I was wondering if I was coming down with rheumatoid arthritis. I had general aching and soreness. I hoped that removing the root canal tooth would improve my overall health enough to lessen the aches and pains I was experiencing. I am not completely pain free, but I am 75% better. I have more energy and feel better when I first wake up. I am sleeping better at night. The pain would wake me up every night. Now, I rarely wake up in pain, maybe one time a month. I’m not sure if the tooth was the total problem, but I was concerned that I would get on pain medicine without finding the cause of my pain.
