toothache morning

So while I am most dearly and wantonly wishing that I were asleep, I awoke to this singing, inescapable pain in my tooth. Today, yuck, ugh, dentist. I guess.

I was going to write some sort of anecdotal wrap-up of recent events - musings, concerns and my usual neurotic ramblings - but no amount of ibuprofen seems to be keeping this pain at bay long enough to get any more sleep, so i'll get around to it later.

God i'm such a big baby.

Re:
The whopping great big gigantic toothache of the century, which I should have dealt with long ago. Chipped tooth+time=Owwie. Ow. I'm waiting around for some disreputable dentists to call me back, hopefully I can get something done about this today so I can go out tonight, which is all that really matters, in the end.

Re:
Ah...

I had my wisdom tooth pulled 2 weeks ago because it had rotted from the inside and 1/4 of its surface had broken off, revealing tender pink interior. PAINFUL!!! It was a huge ordeal, the procedure and 'recovery', because my mouth is very sensitive and stubborn. I had to go back to get more pain meds prescribed which saved me from insanity... If you read that past few weeks of my LJ, you can see what hell it's been for me.

I wish you luck with your tooth! Hopefully you can get it fixed ASAP!!

awww, and thanks
Ooh i'm sorry to hear about your ordeals and trials! I had horrible wisdom teeth experiences as well, long ago, and the troubles back then have a lot to do with the trouble i'm having now. Eu, though, tender pink interior. Ow ow. Ow.

I'm finally experiencing a sort of semi-painless state (found the right combination of aleve, advil and tylenol PM) so i'm going to try to get some sleep.

Hey you medicate yourself like I do!!! Except I was taking so many, it made me sick! What you need are vicoprofen (hydrocodone + ibuprofen), they really helped me get through it.

Well I feel better now, and I got some sleep... I was feeling kind of loopy with my otc-pillhead ways, but now, strangely, I have no more toothache. Mysteries of Tylenol PM?

Re: awww, and thanks
My pain was so bad I had to take like 4 naproxen, 8 ibuprofen, and 6 acetaminophen, which does not taste good when it gets rejected by the stomach....
