My teeth do not hurt. I brush twice a day. I drink a soda pop daily which is bad. I don"t take hormone replacement therapy (HRT) but do take Boniva.

I am trying to reduce my HRT (hormone replacement therapy) intake, however I'm finding it very difficult because my gums have started to ache, keeping me awake most of the night. The nights I take my HRT pill, my gums are not sore.
