I haven’t had legit tooth pain in quite a while. I had forgotten how debilitating it can be. I have a rear molar that’s been causing me discomfort for quite a while now. The issue stems from a rogue raspberry seed that strategically positioned itself in such a way as to deliver a death blow resulting in a micro crack that causes pain whenever there is pressure or cold. I’ve gone to the dentist numerous times to try and remedy the issue. This last visit they installed a crown to see if it would help remedy the situation. No dice. I had the procedure done last Thursday and as of tonight it feels worse than it did before. So basically anytime I drink anything, it causes my entire jaw to ache. My tooth has a heartbeat. The pain makes it difficult to focus and is exhausting. I’m hoping to get into the dentist tomorrow to see if there’s anything else that can be done. If not, goodbye tooth. I’d rather it be gone than have to deal with this pain for another night. Besides, there are always implants if I ever miss it too much.
That’s all I’ve got for tonight. I was hoping to write some insightful posts on the coffee shop blog but I can’t focus. The only thing I can think about is getting this tooth out of my face. Now I’m just waiting on this ibuprofen to kick in so I can get some sleep.
