Customer Question

Maybe this is not a neurology question but here goes.
I have been reading a post where a woman has been having what I would call pains in her gums. I have this too and it is annoying me,.Its a dull aching pain, not stabbing. I wear dentures and my gums are not sore or bleeding or anything. Thats why I thought it might be a neurology matter. I find it all embarrassing so would really appreciate your help.
