Good morning *soft huggs* How are you feeling? Is the pain still easing up in little short term spruts? I am very worried for you. I wanna suggest some things, but before I do, know Im not just giving random advise. In march 09 my teeth began to crumble out of my head, and by june I had nothing left. Literally. All of them, gone. 2 months ago they removed all my teeth *deep breaths*. So heres what I did, while the doctors where scrambling to find out what was causing it (noone would treat me until they found a cause).
For the swollen jaw (oh goodness not tooth area!) gel ice pack. On neck too. (if you havnt already your gonna starrt to get horrible headaches)
Oragel "liquid" sticks directly on the tooth, and ALL gum line. (shouldnt interfere with your mouth wash)
Ibuprophen, a FULL 800mg if you can take NSAIDs (the inflammation pressing on the broken teeth)
"Maximum relief" orajel cream on inside of your jaw, directly where the "jaw joint" is
Call your primary or dentist to get antibiotics (will still take 3 to 4 days before you get relief thou)
Your gonna start to get "tension headaches" try a heating pad at the base of your skull / where spine is.
I am so very sorry! I really really am! *warmest huggs* If you can get the infection taken care of, it will buy you some time. While I was "waiting on them" I had to go through antibiotic s a few times. But, it is important to get the antibiotics right away, least it travel to your bone. Gosh, I wish I could just scoop you up and take you to my oral surgeon!!!!!!!!! I am so very very sorry you have to endure through this right now! This is the LAST thing you need! *warmest huggs*
