Tooth Update  
Sunday night was awful - couldn't even sleep it hurt so bad. Called the dentist Monday when they opened and they said they could see me at 12:30 and that probably my bite was just off. Me=skeptical. I know what my bite feeling off is like, and this isn't it. Get to the dentist, and he starts muttering and poking at the tooth, and then asks for tweezers. Starts pulling stuff from under the gum. Then he says he thinks I had an allergic reaction to the stuff they pack the tooth with. So I spend an hour with him digging stuff out from under the gum. This is nightmare for me, as I already have extreme dental phobia. Then he gets an x-ray to make sure he got all of it. No dice. More digging stuff out. Give me a syringe and some special little brush and tells me to keep the area as clean as possible while it heals and gives me a prescription for pain meds. We go to Nin's work to get my prescription, and her coworker - who used to be in the dental field - says she thinks the dental assistant didn't remove all the packing and that's what really happened.

Tooth still hurts, but the medication is helping enough so I can sleep. Hopefully will be better by the end of the week.

Oh you poor baby! I shudder at what you've gone through and wish I could send you something to make it better. I suggest a nice fandom boyfriend cuddle pile with every glorious male you've ever wanted.

That makes ME feel better and I'm not even sick!

Oh. OUCH! And I agree with your friend. An allergic reaction would NOT explain the dentist pulling things out of your mouth. Things that should not have been in there in the first place. They darned well should not be charging you for this visit!

Hopefully it clears up quickly.

Oh, poor you! That is awful. I don't hate going to the dentist but I don't much care for it either. Hope you are getting proper rest now.

Your dentist ought to be ashamed of himself! That sounds so awfully painful. *hugs*

EEK! I'm glad the meds are helping. Got my fingers crossed it will be better by the end of the week. *HUGS*

Ouch! *hugs you gently* I hate oral surgery. I've had my wisdom teeth out, and FOUR gum surgeries (receding gums FTW - NOT!). Ugh. Hopefully you'll feel better soon.

Ouch, I hope it will heal pretty soon. Sounds really nasty. And yeah! for pain meds, what would we be without them. (Probably crying in some cold, damp cave and still playing with sticks.)

Eeep. That sounds painful to deal with. I hope it gets better.
