Sudden Painful Bleeding Gums

Posted by treehouse

My kids have been sick with the flu, and I have managed not to get it so far.  I have felt tinges of something but so far so good.  However, a couple of days ago my gums became very painful.  In fact, I cant even really brush my teeth easily they hurt so bad...and they are bleeding a bunch.  I normally have healthy gums and no problems with pain or bleeding when brushing or flossing normally.  What is happening?

Sounds like your immune system is overloaded and your resistance is very low right now.  Enough rest, a good diet, and mental relaxation will probably allow your recovery.  Too Slow response?  Worsening symptoms- see your dentist for an intervention.
