Poorly me

I had a sore tooth on Thursday night so got an emergency appointment with the dentist on Friday morning.

He said my tooth was OK but as it was still causing me problems 4 years after having root canal treatment, he would send off a referral for me to have it removed.  He took and x-ray and charged me £20 for the privilege.

I went back to work and took some painkillers.

I bought extra strong painkillers after work and took some of those.

I was in agony all night, couldn't sleep at all, felt sick and went through the packet of pills in record time.

I phoned the out of hours dentist this morning.  He hadn't replied after 2 hours so I took myself off to the A & E department (ER) at the local hospital.

I saw a lovely lady doctor who checked me over and told me I have a dental abscess.  She gave me anti-biotics and more painkillers.

I'm now only just up after spending the afternoon laid up in bed..  I'm very thankful today for Samuel who has looked after me all afternoon especially after I've discovered that I can't take co-codamol without feeling really sick.

What a boy ♥♥♥


  1. Oh you poor thing - sending much sympathy via blogland. I do hope that it responds to the antibiotics very soon.

  2. I was going to say towatch it wasn't the medication that was making you sick....hope the antibiotics work!

  3. That's really not fun! Thank goodness for Samuel and I hope the antibiotics kick in and you start feeling a bit better soon. xx

  4. Hope the pain eases soon for you. Cal had an abcess which came back several times so I am sure he would sympathise with you.

  5. Hope you are feeling better really soon. Its amazing how children grow up so quickly when you are ill and rally round to look after you.

  6. I'm very sorry to hear this. I have had a dental abcess before - and the pain really is terrible,easily bad enough to keep you up at night. I hope the antibiotics are starting to work by now and you are feeling the benefits!

  7. I hope you are feeling better soon :-)
