My wife and I went out to the Outback Steakhouse for our wedding anniversary on Sunday. I took one bite of bread and I had a nerve jolt go way up into my jaw. I determined that it was the second tooth from the back on the top. I diagnosed that I had a cavity under a old feeling in the tooth. It really started to hurt for the rest of the meal. I was able to eat but only on the opposite side of my mouth. I was in pain the rest of the day. I was taking some Advil but didn't sleep well
I called the Dentist on Monday morning and told them my problem. They took X-rays to determine what was going on in my mouth. The Dentist said that my diagnosis was way off. What, I thought I gave them a good heads up. He told me in the first place there was no filling in the tooth and no cavity in the tooth. Whoops, what was I thinking. It turned out I had a gum infection. He put me on an antibiotic and said it should be fine in a day. It is two days later and I'm still hurting. I hope it's nothing worse then an infection. I have been taking Advil for the pain and it takes a while to work.
I'm looking for improvement. I hope things change by tomorrow. I have to go to the Dentist again next Monday. I have enough Antibiotics for one week. I want to quit hurting.
