Pain And My State Of Mind..
Wednesday, November 18, 2009
I had two root canals done yesterday at the dentist.
He told me that I "shouldn't have any pain" afterwards other than some minor soreness.
One of the molars he Root Canaled has been SCREAMING ever since the Novocaine wore off. It's really making me CRAZY. Honestly is there anything worse than tooth pain?? I think not. Even when I broke my arm and had surgery to insert a plate and 6 screws I didn't have this much pain!
I finally broke down and called his office today and he gave me a prescription for Vicodin and Pennicillin. Unfortunately the vicodin really only works for an hour or so and then I'm back in pain all over again.
This has had a serious effect on my eating and exercise. Just walking around the house makes it throb more in my mouth, and I'm having a hard time finding foods I can eat without wanting to cry.
I guess I'm kind of afraid that this is going to have a negative impact on my weight loss. My attitude is the pits right now because I'm in constant pain, and not being able to exercise or eat my usual healthy foods has me stressed out too..
Does anyone have any suggestions?
