:arghh: No 1 most annoying common pain in my book. Anyone who knows me, will know the past few years, I seemed to have spent half my life at the dentist.

 

Just hoping I get a few hours sleep at least tonight, and am able to get an emergency appointment tomorrow morning, when I ring. Think I have another tooth infection and been here before and it's no fun, when you literally have about 10 minutes sleep, for 3 nights on the trot.  :arghh:

Worst time to get one when there's a bank holiday.

 

Hope they get you fixed!

Yep, luckily painkillers just about dulling the pain enough for an hour or so, to hopefully get some sleep, having to use paracetamol and ibupofen. Need a dentist tomorrow definitely or the painkillers will just stop working.

It's an old wives tale, but with toothache if you lay in the bed with the opposite leg to the side of the mouth that is hurting hanging out the bed with the sole of the foot flat on the floor it casues a natural feng shui within the body as the nerves are harmonised and this reduces the pain without having to resort to herbal fixes.

 

This explains why dentists are a late 1800 invention where they made false teeth out of wood as we moved away from the more traditional ways of healing as above.

 

May the light shine upon you as you give this ago tonight.

If you can't get to the dentist/doctors tomorrow and you haven't tried it yet, go get some Orajel Extra Strength. Apply enough and it will numb your whole face for a few hours.  :goofy:

 

Available over the counter in most high street chemists.

have you tried oil of cloves?  takes the pain away immediately. put your finger in the bottle/oil and then dab around the infected area. you`'' be amazed at how fast it works.

Well, made it through the night, without any unnatural sleeping positions lol. Initial painkillers, kept me going for a couple of hours until 2, then, took some Nurofen Express and thankfully while I can still feel it, I managed to get some more sleep.

 

I've had a few tooth infections over the past few years, so I definitely know when one is starting to take hold. When it comes to an infection, you do need to get antibiotics ASAP, as it doesn't go away and painkillers stop working and you end up like Richy said wanting to punch your own face in. Last time even the antibiotics, didn't work and the pain just got worse and I ended up with no sleep for 2 days, waiting for them to kick in, which as I said they didn't. I then had to have an emergency appointment, 4 mouth injections and antibiotics then injected into the tooth itself. But then once the numbness from the injections wore off, I still ended up with the pain back for another 24 hours, before it finally went.

 

Will definitely get some orajel though, because even with the bad infection, I managed to get a few hours sleep, when my mouth was numb, after the antibiotic injection.

 

Ringing the dentist soon.

Got to see the dentist this morning.

She looked at the tooth and said it's clean and she would put something in the tooth to help with the pain and refill it temporarily and to come back for a check up in a few weeks.

I think it's an infection, she thinks it's because the tooth was exposed. Only time will tell, but for now painkillers are still working.

Oh and I got some orajel.

I would really recommend Clove oil, it does numb all the pain!,


And also sensandine (spelling) toothpaste rubbed on the tooth, help too

Ooh I could tell you some horrible experiences I've had with dentists, but I won't.

 

Worst pain I can think of.

 

What I will say though, I hope you get your teeth sorted soon without out too much suffering and that you get a long uninterrupted sleep as well.

 

Take Care

Thanks for all the comments raise a careful little smile.

 

Mouth and tooth still doesn't feel right and painkillers still needed, but only a couple of times. Just taking it easy, eating on one side, see how I go. If it stays the same, I'll be able to get through the few weeks and then see dentist about root canal on the tooth and hopefully then crown it.
