    Could be a number of reasons.... like a cavity...

    Hemmm, my professional opinion is that cholidarity nerves on the brating vextor is damaged. The only solution is that you should stop eating chocolate. And, whenever you are about to eat chocolate, send it to me.

    It could be caused by gum recession. That can cause sensitivity.

    I don't know what causes it, but I hope you can get it fixed! That sounds like a terrible, terrible affliction to not be able to eat chocolate without pain! :surprised But, because I'm a caring person who doesn't wish to see anyone suffer, you can send me all your chocolate. :biggrin: o:)

    Hmmm, could be cavities.

    I grind my teeth when I sleep (bruxism) which wears down the enamel and causes sensitivity

    Why chocolate? What other foods?

    Do you start off chewing or let it melt a bit?

    What quality chocolate? What kind?

    My guess is the sugar in the chocolate, not tahe chocolate. I have always been hypersensitive to sugar, including my teeth. For example, every morning I used to eat canned mandarin orange slices that had been packed in water. Then they stopped selling that kind around here, and only offered them packed in light syrup. No matter how much I rinsed the segments, after eating them my teeth hurt and I experienced a "sugar low."

    It's interesting because there is a sugar cane product called "Sucanant," which is simply evaporated cane juice. I can eat that all day, as well as any sort of natural sweet like figs, dates, prunes, etc., and never feel the slightest negative effect. But refine it (beyond evaporating, drying, etc.) and my body always reacts with some kind of discomfort.

    yeah i get that also, & it's probably because i've got a couple cavities. brownies hurt the worst. :frown:
