I’ve 3 teeth slightly raised by the infection which is sitting just to the right at the front of my lower jaw. The pain – numbed by far too much paracetamol and ibuprofen – comes in waves and at it’s peak is amazingly strong. Thankfully just before I decide to hammer a nail into my jaw to relieve the pressure, it recedes somewhat at which point I do what needs to be done before the next crescendo begins.
Finally got round to creating my Music Exchange CD though it has yet to be burnt. I think it reflects my musical memories fairly accurately though it is inevitably heavily influenced by my current mood. I’ll post the tracklist on Monday when I send out the discs.
A post here I recently titled as “There is no pain..”. Must.not.do.that.again.
Update: About 30 minutes ago, the pain hit a new high. I’m as full of painkillers as even I will go (and that’s high), ice is not working, sitting still is not working neither is moving around. I catch a tooth as I drink some icy water and I instinctively shut my mouth and suck on the tooth (I don’t know how else to describe it). The pain is lessened a bit but when I stop it hurts more. So I suck a bit harder but the rebound pain is worse, and I really suck hard on the tooth. The pain lessens then almost explodes with a new throbbing and at the same time my mouth fills with blood. I can taste something really foul but the pain has changed – I’m heading to the kitchen by this point as it’s closest – and the pressure has gone. Abcess sorted ! I repeated this new technique a couple of times at the sink followed by icy water and mouthwash and right now, apart from a peculiar but not entirely unpleasant sensation, I am pain free :)
