Dick Van Dyke's Dental Implant Causes His Mysterious Illness


Dick Van Dyke


Dental implant allegedly becomes the source of Van Dyke's bad headache for years, which causes him sleeping trouble and fatigue.

Doctor apparently has found the cause of Dick Van Dyke's continuous headache. The veteran actor took to Twitter to tell his fans of his recent condition. "It seems that my titanium dental implants are the cause of my head pounding," he wrote on Thursday, May 30. He also asked his followers, "Has anyone else experienced this? Thanks for all your replies."

The 87-year-old actor's mysterious pain might be side effects of dental work performed on him. A study in the British Dental Journal suggests that 1 percent of implant procedures carried out each year result in nerve injuries. As reported by BBC last year, patients with the nerve injury would have problems with pain, speech, eating and kissing.

Last month, the "Night at the Museum" actor was forced to cancel some appearances because he had "fatigue and lack of sleep resulting from symptoms of a yet-to-be diagnosed neurological disorder." His representative Bob Palmer told USA Today, "Tests and scans have yet to reveal a specific diagnosis. Various medications have not diminished the symptoms." Palmer also said that until the source of the actor's head pain could be found, he was advised to rest at home and avoid traveling by plane.

Van Dyke even talked about his illness on Twitter to get solutions. "My head bangs every time I lay down. I've had every test come back that I'm perfectly healthy. Anybody got any ideas?" he wrote back then. He explained further that he "had every test you can think of (CAT Scan, MRI, Spinal tap etc)."
