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 ♥♥♥
