Boy that hurt. The actual root canal procedure was a piece of cake next to the pain that set in after the Marcaine wore off. I thought the nerves had been removed. So why did that tooth hurt so much afterward. As bad as before?
I wonder if it's like phantom pain
people get after a limb is amputated. The nerves may be gone, but the
pain that your brain remembered is still the same. EEEEEWWWWWW.
For various reasons I was taking
Tylenol instead of Advil. After a day of pain that makes
childbirth feel like shopping, I said, "SCREW THIS!!" And I went for
the heavy duty Advil. I didn't care if my arms fell off, I
couldn't take the sensation of someone hammering a nail into my gums
In ten short minutes the junkyard
dog ache barking in my face evaporated in a POOF. Gone. And it hasn't
come back. Mainly because I keep medicating myself every eight hours
with MORE Advil.
Just in time to meet a friend
downtown for lunch. What's good to order when you're only supposed to
eat on one side of your mouth?
