Oh I am so fed up .. wretched toothache. Nearly 7 weeks ago I had a tooth extracted as I couldn’t bear the thought of root canal treatment. The offending tooth reacted to anything hot touching it and was so painful... so out it came. However the tooth next to it feels just the same and I still can’t stand anything remotely hot touching it. The ache from that and the extraction is horrid.
But the worse thing is that I have such pain in my top molar too.. the dentist knows about this.. has x rayed it and can’t see anything wrong.. but oh hells teeth it aches.
I’ve been taking ibuprofen and paracetamol alternately daily.. and each day hoping and praying it will disappear. It helps holding a hot water bottle to my face, and funnily though it doesn’t bother me at night thank goodness.
I know I must go back to the dentist but as I am totally phobic about going hence I keep putting it off, but it’s horrid.
I changed to this dentist a year ago thinking it was so much nicer than where I had been going, but each time I’ve been it’s been so traumatic I could cry.
Feel sorry for myself , and I apologise for the winge.
I know there are many people out there with far greater worries and problems, but I can feel the panic rising and know I must go back as something is going wrong.
Any other toothache sufferers out there ?
