Well...here I am...
....I had a killer toof.
I was in terrible pain from a tooth this past weekend and ended up with an emergency dental appointment on Sunday. CT showed an abscess and that I needed a root canal. However, a good chunk of the tooth had become sclerotic and made it very difficult for the first dentist to even find the roots.
A second dentist came in and FOUR HOURS LATER, I had a completed root canal. The pain from the abscess went away pretty quickly, but then I felt like I'd been hit in the mouth with a hammer.
The first dentist had assured me the pain medicine he was giving me wouldn't bother me. Well...he was wrong...VERY wrong. During the sick days, it seems I became quite sensitive to a large variety of pain meds and that sensitivity hasn't waned.
They made me sick to my stomach until it was almost all out of my system and triggered a migraine. Talk about adding insult to injury. I stayed home from work again today and I just now feel like I'm coming around. I can't chew on that side of my mouth - it's still worryingly sensitive, but it was a pretty rigorous experience for that side of my mouth, so I'll give it a few days.
I've not done anything else at all except this. I'll be back to work tomorrow though and then off on travel on Thursday - not a good week for all this to happen.
I hope to be be back to my regularly scheduled programming soon.
