Rough Weekend



It appears that I most likely have an abscessed tooth, which hurts really fucking bad. Of course any type of head pain leads to a bad headache, so add a massive headache on to the pain in my tooth. I'll have to call a dentist and see if I can find one that will actually take me and then deal with a dreaded dental appointment. Overall, it's just a pain in the ass.

UPDATE: The tooth is not abscessed but instead is a major cavity and broken tooth that was causing the pain. I go back in two weeks to get a filling.

Sorry to hear this and hope you find a dentist who can take you as an emergency right away. I must admit, when I saw the title of this post, I had higher hopes for you. ;-)

A cautionary tale: Do not neglect your teeth. My Dad was afraid to go to the dentist all his life, a fact I only learned last year. He is now 83 and has but one tooth left in his mouth. He has lost the enjoyment of eating because his dentures are really no replacement for your own teeth. He has dropped 50 pounds. Bad teeth can impact your overall health. I hope you get that abscessed tooth fixed, and soon.

I hope the pain is under control until you get the filling.

I had that same problem 3 weeks ago! The RX they gave me took 4 days to take hold which meant major pain for a few days. Found out that an ice pack helped to numb my nerves enough to sleep. Hope u get to feeling better quicker than me! Ruined a week for me.
