I had a dental implant on tooth #13. It was painful from day one. I had it removed a year and a half later. Two months prior to removal I couldn't see straight while driving. feels like a roller coaster. cant take turns. thought I was having a heart attack. doc tried to put me on antidepressant. Even after implant was removed I still have "vertigo" and all other symptoms. I changed BP med from atenol to amlodipine.. thought it was atenol giving me anxiety. anxiety is better but I still cant drive or see straight.
