I've had one for over 4 years now, it's draining via a fistula in my upper gum. Assuming I could even afford it, what would they do to treat it? The tooth is gone. Also, if I don't have anything done to it, what would happen? I sometimes get bad headaches that make that side of my head hurt and also travel down my spine. The only new symptoms since this has occurred are splinter hemorrhages in my fingernails and I get some heart arrhythmias(?) more often, sometimes get upper back pain, but I don't think I have endocarditis.
Thank you for any information,
