Recently (one week ago) I had periodontal surgery which involved a great deal of pain and stitches. As a result, I was on Darvocet and Amoxicillin for three full days before I became so sick and nauseated that I threw away the meds. I am also experiencing vertigo now and have never had that before in my life. I am looking for a link between the meds I was taking and the vertigo w/extreme fatigue. I have not been myself at all and am desperate for answers. It is possible, since vertigo is primarily related to inner ear disorders, that when the Dr was messing w/my teeth, that he jarred something near my ear since he was working in that region of my face.

Has anyone else experienced that? Maybe, there is someone out there who knows of why this would occur

  • My endodontist told me when I had a surgery that swelling can affect the ear. Also, swallowing blood can cause nausea, and often after a dental surgery you are swallowing some blood for a few days. It is possible you have an infection, however, and if so, stopping the antibiotic may have left it resistant. Advise going back to your dentist for a recheck.
