And the tooth ache continues – it’s been on since Tuesday. At first I didn’t think it was notable but it’s now getting on my nerves. It’s not really bad ache – just bad enough that I’m aware of it all the damn time. And it could be my imagination, but I think it’s a tiny shade worse today than yesterday 🙁
It’s just that I don’t know if it’s normal for it to still ache! If I knew everything was alright and it’s normal and will end sooner rather than later like in a day/three days/a week or something like that, I feel I could stand it. But I’m worried that there’s still infection left there even though I don’t have any of the symptons – but I didn’t have first time either!
I also think maybe I’m blowing the tooth ache out of all proportion because I’ve begun to realize just in these last few weeks or so, that I don’t deal that well with pain anymore, because of the 2,5 years lasting chronic migraine that finally is gone (knock on wood!) and now that I’ve been pain free for like 4 months apart from the migraine attacks (lot less intense than they used to be) I don’t have patience to deal with new continuing pain and just want it to not hurt and be comfortable. And also, for all I know this could be bad pain but because the chronic migraine and the migraine attacks used to be a million times worse than this pain, I don’t feel like it’s bad or even really worth to complain about… because compared to those? This is nothing.
So I don’t what what I’m feeling is reasonable pain and to expected after tooth removal and infection, or whether I should do something about it again.
And why does it have to be the end of the week again – I either have to get in for a check up tomorrow, or wonder through the weekend. I almost wish it’d get really really kill me now horrible because then at least I’d know it’s not healing as it should!
The other tooth removal is scheduled for July 5th, and at the rate this is going, this one is still going to hurt and drive me crazy at that time!
