Can a cold cause a toothache?
I've had a really bad cold for about a week now, and this morning when I woke up I had a toothache too! The last 5-6 molars on each side, both top and bottom, have a dull ache. It's not that bad, but it hurts more when I press my teeth down. What could be causing this??

Go to the dentist to make sure it's not a cavity. Chances are you have a sinus infection, which expresses itself in tooth pain. I'll save you some money by having to go to two doctors.
