So sorry to post again after yesterday. But, my dentist office is closed today and tomorrow. I had a replacement filling done yesterday on a molar. The old filling was 11+ years old and had cracked, but I didn't know and had caused some decay underneath. Anyway, yesterday was pretty horrible. I have PTSD from everything having to do with my initial injury and all the appts following, so I usually get 3 doses of Valium before hand. However, I had to drive myself and was unable to do so. So yesterday was a horrible, horrible, horrible day for me. And I'm not sure if the stress/anxiety/emotional mess I was afterward could have caused it to be worse. But my dentist had said, I was going to feel it yesterday after the numbing wore off. He said I was going to know he was in there. But, it ms today now and I bought some Tylenol this am. But it's not working for pain relief. I'm allergic to ibuprofen and my upper jaw hurts a lot and I keep getting ringing in my ear from the throbbing. And to touch or eat it just hurts. So I'm wondering is there anything I can do to make it feel better? I don't have orajel, and it's the muscle/ gums/ under part of my lip that hurt not the tooth itself. Is it after hours worthy? I have a very low pain tolerance :x

If he knew it was gonna cause you pain like that why didn't he write you a script? If you truly can't deal with the pain I would go to after hours/call your primary and ask for a script.

It's just super annoying. I didn't sleep well because whenever I touch it or set my face down it hurts. I don't think he knew it was going to be that bad. But, like I said I have a very low pain tolerance and I was an emotional mess so I don't know if that exacerbated it.



He is a wonderful dentist. He's seen me over the course of the past 10 years and helped me set up referrals and pic my oral surgeon who did all the major work. That's why I'm like WTF is up with this.
