Could I Be Having a Toxic Reaction to my Filling?

Q.
I’ve had a dental composite filling done and have had constant headaches ever since that make me vomit and I feel slow with bad concentration and brain fog. I never had headaches or these reactions before the filling – could it be a toxic reaction to the filling? The filling has a strong plastic taste to it which I can detect but have generally been feeling very unwell since it was placed. Have you seen this kind of reaction before in patients? I have an existing immunological disease.
Thanks.
A.
Thanks for writing in. I doubt it is a reaction to the material, but it is worth checking if the bite needs adjusting as this can cause headaches. You could also have the filling removed and see if the headaches go away- go back to the dentist who did the filling and get him to check the bite. Kind regards, Andrew.
