Toothache

Holy Mother of Jesus, I thought I was gonna die...
Last night, around 1030pm, I felt like the whole left side of my mouth was gonna fall from my head. Terrible toothache, in fact, worst ever in my life. Off to Porto Alegre - thank God by that time of the night roads were pretty empty, so we made it really really fast - I ended up at a really huge hospital that didn't have an emergency dentist on call... WHAT?!
I could barely open my eyes 'cuz of the aweful pain and off we go to the general clinic. Yes, they've a dentist on call! It was already 11pm then. It took him 40 minutes to arrive, and during this time I was in fetal position, trying to stay as still as I could, so the pain didn't come back. It was coming in waves, killing me at some points and vanishing at others.
The dentist arrives. He asks me which one is hurting. I pointed. He sees nothing wrong. Takes an x-ray. He is sure it's not the one I pointed, but the next one that is the trouble maker. The pain is just so much, I can't even point the right one?! Ok.. Just make it stop!!!!
Three shots of anesthesia (one of them right in my nerve, made me scream so loud I couldn't believe it was really happening), numb to my ear (yes, I think that was the same drug they use on horses, 'cuz even my nose was numb! Thank you, Lord, for this...), lots of pain and a temporary fix later, he tells me I need a root canal. Yaaay! True fun.... NOT!
Got home by 130am, to crash on bed. It has been ages since I had that much of good time on a Monday night. Ouch...

funny puppy pictures-i can has cuddlez nao?

Ouch - I feel for you, I had the same thing back in early summer - had to have the thing extracted, as the root canal work was more than I could afford at the time :( Was so glad to have that tooth gone though :)

Ohhhhh Janinha, ninguém merece dor de dente. Felizmente tirando uma dorzinha ou outra do ajuste do aparelho ortodontico, nunca sofri assim, mas imagino o qto deve ter doído. Espero que hj te sintas melhor! Faça o tratamento certinho e logo estaras imune!
Beijos.

Jana, que coisa amiga!!? Fiquei com pena de vc...eu senti dor de dente so de ler seu post.

Olha, eu nunca tive isso...não sei como é uma dor de dente.

Só não entendi uma coisa...ele fez o canal ou vc vai ter que fazer depois?!

Olha, sei lá...deve ser difícil aqui conseguir um dentista de noite pois nas emergências nunca tem ninguém do tipo...

Ainda bem que vc conseguiu amiga!

Melhoras pra vc!

Bjim!
