I have a big, throbbing, hot...

abcessed tooth :frowning:
I’m in agony…I’m on drugs…I’m miserable.
Misery loves company…anyone care to cheer me up? A joke? Story? Song?
:frowning: :frowning:

I am now hot and throbbing also, but that is mainly due to my strange fetish with poor oral hygiene.

Here in frog land we always eat our porridge, because it keeps us frogs real peaceful-like.

I’m right there with ya Zette. Just got over mine last week… my jaw still doesn’t feel right. I’ve had 7 root canals in the last 3 years and It ain’t fun!! What drugs they gotcha on?

Gee, Zette, I thought you were going to say something else. How could I have gotten that impression?

My son got a lot of abcesses but fortunately they were baby teeth, so they could pull them. He’s thirteen now and has braces but they had to wait a year to put on the bottom set because he was missing too many teeth.

nothing fun…just motrin and penecillian. And I’m using copious amounts of liquid benzocaine. It woke me up at 3am- I even had to call in sick to work (have never had to call in there).

Are you getting it extracted soon?

I used to free-base “penecillian”. I’d hallucinate that I could spell.

Canthearya: I’m going to guess that they won’t extract it. usually they can treat an abcess with antibiotics and save the tooth.

Chief kicked me when I was down by saying:

I would just like to send a nice, long distance… “Screw You!”

May a thousand ants infest your underwear…

Oh, and it’s going to be root canal next week…Yippie!!!

Radiator hose in my car. It’s about to come off. Should I take it into the radiator repair shop or just add antifreeze?

Have you ever tried Ora-Jel? Or any other over-the-counter dental anesthetic (it’s a kind of ointment)? Most humane invention for people who can’t get to a dentist just yet. I swear by it (I’ve had bad teeth since childhood).
Try it, it works. :slight_smile:

Dougie…Oh, yeah…I’m using it alright. It’s still killing me, though. I just popped some more motrin. Oh, well. Thanks for your sympathy guys. I appreicate it.

Hey Sanibel, if you have any experience with cars those are not too difficult to replace on your own. But definitely replace it.

If the pain is that bad, call back the dentist who perscribed the antibiotics and get something stronger. If you are too sick to go to work, you might as well be on something that will knock your ass out. Your dentist dosn’t know how bad you are hurting unless you tell him!

Zette, try a little shot of scotch. You don’t have to drink it (although that will obviously dim some pain) just swish it around the area. it works great. Feel better soon!

Speking of Ora-Jel…dab a bit on your eyebrows before tweezing. Still hurts, but not as much. I love stuff with multiple uses!

Well, here’s an update (if anyone cares). Better today- I finally got sick of the pain last night and got drunk (drank up a bunch of cheap wine). It’s much better today thanks to the antibiotics. Man, I’m gonna remember this when I have a baby and it’s teething. I wanted to cry like a baby yesterday! :slight_smile:
Thanks for all the advice…you guys are the best!

Grody to the max!! I never had an abscessed tooth, but once I stepped on a needle & it stayed in my foot for 2 weeks & I had an abscess the size of a golf ball on my big toe. It stopped hurting after they lanced it, though.

Hope you feel better soon…

Boy, that’s one remedy I would use with utmost caution. Can you imagine a hangover and a bad toothache at the same time?

Shoot me. Shoot me now.

Glad you’re feeling better, Zette. More good wishes from Minnesota, ya shoor.

Learned in desperation when I didn’t have dental coverage:

When it starts to really hurt in spite of painkillers, brush your teeth – the counterirritation helps. Then get a carbonated drink, the “stronger” the better (Diet Coke works very well), get it really cold and drink it slowly, sloshing it over the tooth. A straw is good to direct it. Keep doing that; it will help keep the pain down to a manageable level – often if you keep it up long enough it’ll even stop the pain entirely for a while. Ice water works, too, but not as well as a really cold Coke. And no hangover!
