The Pain!

For the past week or so, I've had pain that I've never felt before. At the age of 30, I didn't think I'd have to worry about this pain anymore, but apparently I do, and I'm teething!!!!!

Yes, well maybe not exactly, but now I know why my kids were so cranky especially when their molars were coming in. I have a tooth ache like none other, and the fact is, I think it's an impacted wisdom tooth. Right now I have to grin and bare it because of no dental insurance, well no insurance at all in fact. Motrin seems to be taking the pain away for now, but it's kicking my butt!! I'm not one to take medication, in fact, I can't even swallow pills. So children's Motrin is what's been sliding down my throat for the past 12 hrs straight. And it's making me very very sleepy! As I sit here and try to blog, try to keep myself awake, i'm loosing the battle fast.....In the next few minutes to an hour, I can see myself peacefully asleep on my couch, with no more pain, and dreaming of the peaceful silence that I'll have!

I have sympathy for you with this situation. I know how horrible this type of pain can be. I actually just had my wisdom teeth removed last week (not fun I'll tell ya). I'll be happy once the pain from that is gone. I hope you feel better. Hang in there!

Sweety, I hope the pain goes away soon. Tooth pain is one of the worst pains there is.

I understand the drugged feeling. I have had a migraine for 2 days, and finally got some Tylenol 3 for it today. The pain is finally subsiding, but I feel rather loopy.

Hope you get rest & feel better soon.

Ambusol or orajel (for adults) would really help all of you gals. It's a temp fix, but worth a shot if you can't or don't take pills. Or you might try your local health food store for suggestions on natural products. You'd be surprised what is out there.
