Update on my toothache
I managed to get an emergency appointment to see a dentist yesterday, (Wednesday). I had phoned my GP surgery on Monday to ask for some strong painkillers until my dental appointment and they left a prescription of co-codamol 30/500 for me to pick up. I also bought some Oragel at the chemist which is applied to the tooth and numbs it a bit. The trouble with the co-codamol is that it makes one very sleepy but at least it keeps the pain away. I came away from the dentist with a referal to have my tooth removed under sedation. This may entail a wait of up to 7 weeks! Needless to say, I am worried about having this done, I'm just terribly anxious about anything to do with dentists and hospital.
