I had to have some dental work done last Friday and opted for sedation, because I am terrified of the dentist! The dentist told me that removing one particular tooth was going to be difficult. A few hours later woke to incredible pain which didn't go away. Saw an emergency Doctor on Sunday morning who prescribed a cocktail of pain relief which did work but unfortunately brought me out in a dreadful red itchy, burning rash! Next morning went to my doctors but saw a locum who must have retired about 40 years ago!! Got anti-histamines and went off to work but the pain got worse and I came home.
Had no sleep and then off to the Doctors again the next morning and saw my own GP who gave me steroids for 5 days! Then off to my Dentist (still shaking because I hate going!) where they treated me immediately for 'dry socket' and put me on strong antibiotics.
I had put a post up on one of the miniature forums and thankfully a member on there is a dental nurse who advised me to go back to the dentist and told me she thought I might have dry socket and I am very grateful to her - she was spot on :)
Today, I am still in a lot of pain and feel quite yucky but hopefully on the mend although last night was dreadful and I had to resort to some strong painkillers. I am getting sick of eating soups, mashed potato, scrambled eggs and yoghurt. BUT today I actually feel like doing some mini work and might try and post up later some additions/alterations to Lake View :)
