That is so interesting that your oral surgeon also mentioned an immune response. It sounds like you had a tremendous ENT. I might try and get a recommendation to one from my GP. Maybe i'll get a good one like you did.
I am female early 50's going through the lovely change of life. I often wonder if that is also part of this as it could coincide with the time that things started changing hormonally.
My ENT actually was the one who told me to give up on the root canal and get the front tooth out (the second failed root canal). He looked at my 3D x ray from the surgeon and said the infection was still present near the nerve. He also said that the immune issues could have been triggered by my first root canal, where my immune system started working overtime.
He is very good! My daughter had trouble with her ears for months. We had visited two different doctors on multiple occasions and they kept saying her ears looked fine. The ENT had her in there for 5 minutes and pushed on a muscle of her jaw from inside her mouth and immediately discovered the issue was with the TMJ joint. We had also mentioned the ears hurting with her dentist and orthodontist previously, thinking it might be related to her 12 year molars, which haven’t erupted yet. They said everything looked good.
