I’m told that when you have toothache to leave it a few weeks, because it might settle down.
So I did. Not the best idea.
I have a sinus infection, which is causing some (lots of) pain in my lower jaw. Yep, my lower jaw. Upper jaw as well, just to add to the confusion.
Anyway, the dentist did X-rays on Tuesday which showed nothing amiss.
The doctor, however, put me onto antibiotics. Which they don’t do as a matter of course, these days, so I’m relieved she did.
After two days of same, plus 2 x 30/500 Co-codamol four times a day, the pain has eased fractionally and I am starting to feel less like a limp rag and more like a human being. I can actually drink without a straw (to direct the water away from the pain), but only room temperature drinks. I can eat a little, as long as there’s not too much chewing involved. Like for a baby who’s being weaned. Bananas, soups, soya pretend yoghurts, that sort of stuff. So definitely on the mend.
But blimey O’Reilly.
