Tooth Still hurting Or: A bit about pain

My stupid wisdom teeth are still hurting, and I've been popping generic vicodin like tic-tacs. It isn't nearly as painful at another incident involving a different tooth.One of my molars had begun to give of little zaps of pain and soon the pain had become worse still. I eventually got to the dentist and they looked at it and told me that they could do a root canal for $500, or pull it for $40. Once I had finished filling out the ubiquitous clipboard with a bunch of questions the dentist should already now, I got some xrays taken and then he got down to business.

I couldn't shake the feeling that he was doing things with slightly too much force. Anyhow After wrenching it around a bit, the tooth popped out and the dentist showed me what it looked like. It was a normal tooth on the top and bottom, but the left side had a huge, angry open sore. Then I got a prescription for pain killers and ended up using because of the pain from dry socket, which lead to mild withdrawal symptoms and a very strained liver.Thankfully I can counteract the dependency with dxm and some tinzanidine, if I can get any that is.

P.S= Milk thistle is really good for healing your liver which can help speed up the healing process.


If you're going to say "just showing some support", "sweet post!", or anything like that, I'd rather you didn't comment at all.
