i swear im gonna pop a cork. tooth pain all weekend , ( of corse when else would it be) . OMG i would rather have surgery!  first off i hate mouth pain of any kind. so having an abcess just made my month. so now a root canal on wednesday is in the future. along with continuing all the antibiotics i been on  since starting the humira. oh yea, what a dance we do huh? if i did not like chewing so much i would have this sucker blown up with dynomite. i mean i can do pain, i can do surgery standing on my head. what is it about tooth pain and dentists that i cannot deal with? sure theres a big pocket of pus in there, but dang, its painfull.  10/650 percosets, 800mg of ibuprofen, and excedrin and it still hurts like heck.. and of corse the ibu/excedrin aint good for my ulcer. so that will probably kill me.  one can hope .............. cry

Don't know if you would have any at home, but oil of oregano (dilute 1 drop in 10 drops of olive oil) applied to the tooth and gum area should help abate the infection. At this dilution it is still bad tasting and somewhat burning, but it is worth it for relief. The info I read did not say how often to apply it - I would guess once an hour or so until you get some relief.

Mouth pain in awful! I had an impacted wisdom tooth surgically removed a couple of years ago. The surgery itself went great, but once the numbing stuff wore off, I started praying for death. I have never felt such horrendous pain in my life, and the pills they gave me didn't even touch it. It took a really long time for the jaw bone to heal too. If I had known how bad it would be, I doubt think I could have gone through with it.

AWWEEEEE...so sorry that you are suffering! Toothaches are definitely the pits! Sometimes if you apply, awful tasting cloves it helps to numb the area. (Dentist actually use cloves in some of their numbing agents) I hope you get relief asap! Much love & laughter to you!

14 hours or so and ill be there! been puking today. gotta be the combo of the flagyl and percosets. twice the normal (for me) flagyl. and the percs. and i was pretty liberal with th 4 hour schedule on the percs;-). so i quit taking the flagyl till after the procedure in case i puke while hes in there. and i quit the percs too. im tuff i can handle it (cry). at least this guy is an endodontics specialist my regular dr is sending me too. apparently the only drilling will be to get through the crown. then hes got some fiber optic laser doohicky to burn out the root and infection. (that should smell good) ... so will update tomorrow night. even with ins. its gonna cost me 625. ouch. i wish we had a sedation guy near here. the lady that did my 2 extractions last year was a swetheart! put me out good. but alas she only does extractions and implants and jaw fixin' stuff. and she was hot! if any of you speak korean, this guy is "mononee" not spelled right im sure but hey .

Hey randy I feel your pain (literally). Last Wednesday I had to have a tooth ripped out due to the nerve being exposed, it affected my entire jaw and gave me such excruciating pain!! I was in agony!

And the day after, what happens to appear but an abscess, right down there where it hurts, so I am in so much pain, not to mention the fever and nausea, really the tooth thing is nothing compared to this, I can barely walk and it was too sensitive for the doc to drain, so I have to put up with this pain and being unable to walk, whilst being on antibiotics which seem to be doing NOTHING and still work my 10 hour days. I think I am going to crumble.

Randy, one thing i forgot to mention - during my time after extraction, i found that babyfood works wonders. I don't know if you've tried this before but it's great for when you can't chew and want to avoid a certain area in your mouth.

If you eat enough jars of the stuff it really is quite filling (and the banana custard flavour is truly delish!!)

I hope you're feeling better soon....

phoebe, i too feel your pain, i got one down there as well! been fighting it since may. comes and goes. pops on its own once its as big as a egg. i would think a small needle would suffice to suck some out and give some relief.. is this dr you went to a gut dr or a GP. maybe even a surgeon would be better, at least there not afraid to cut someone.

Glad it is over for you.

My youngest son had an infected tooth and it was killing him, we could not touch his face he would scream. the Novocaine did not numb it fully so when it was pulled it hurt like heck. he was yelling ow ow ow.... 

Then a few minutes later he was fine as if it never happened. It was so strange how much pain he was in before then none after. I kept asking him if he hurt cause the Dr said he could take Tylenol but he said he did not hurt.

He was lucky it was a baby tooth and the new one was coming in next...

The mouth does really hurt. I had a cracked tooth once and it felt like someone hit my face with a hammer.... I wanted to grab some pliers and yank my tooth out it hurt so bad.

I am glad you are feeling better!

Karen

Hey Randy, I'm glad to hear you're feeling better! it really is sheer relief when the tooth is out or dealt with, hey, after the pain of toothache! it really is unbearable, I'm glad you finally have some relief!

I was prescribed some antibiotics and have to go back and see the doc tonight to get it drained... it was so so painful I'd never experienced anything like that before! and it refused to pop on its own no matter how many salt baths I had :(

I've just been seeing a GP because I don't have a surgeon - but next time (if there is a next time, I hope there isn't!) - I'll consider finding a surgeon since the GP left me in agony for a couple of days until the meds kicked in!

That discomfort chewing may be from the clamp they use around the tooth being worked on. They always have to shove that thing on mine and it hurts the gum line. That must be the price for having tight teeth. Hope you keep feeling better.

still smarting when chewing, just no constant pain. he said it might do that when the pressure was relieved. hopefully it will subside soon.
