ouch

The tooth saga continues. I couldn't sleep last night, even having taken a sleep aid the pain kept me up. I called the dentist this morning and got squeezed in for an emergency consultation. He was so kind and patient with me--and gave me an antibiotic, a mild pain killer, and a referral for a root canal. I can't wait for the meds to kick in, this pain has been at a steady 9 or 10 for about 24 hours.

  2. You'll love root canal because it will put an end to this pain! Tooth aches are the worst, because the pain is inescapable. It's hard to concentrate on anything else! Hopefully the pain killers will give you relief.

  3. I've had several root canals. Most of them weren't any worse than getting a filling, but even the worst of them were better than the pain of a toothache. I have a pretty high tolerance for pain, but a toothache turns me into a whimpering mess. I'm convinced there's no worse pain. I hope the meds have kicked in and you are feeling better today.
