Of course, I left town for the holiday so I'm here with my family in PA and now I've been having mouth pain/tooth pain for over a month now. The last dentist I went to said 'It's just gingivitis and things will get better in a couple days' K well fast forward..and yesterday things got AWFUL. Shooting pain in my teeth, my face is swelling and my head hurts constantly. The pain hasn't been this bad, it's been painful..but not to the point where I can't eat. Now I can't eat, or sleep. I was going to go to the express care at the local hospital but they closed at 6 today - of course, that's my luck.
So now I'm sitting here crying, feeling stupid for going to an ER for a tooth..but I'm in so much pain I can't eat or even sleep and I feel so bad for my child.
On top of that, the costs! I don't have insurance so I really don't want to go but what am I supposed to do until Monday when I have a dentist appointment? I called 6 dentists around here today and NO ONE was in. So I had to call back home to make an appt asap and then they wanted a fax from my midwife to be able to work on me..and logically speaking in my mind Monday doesn't seem so far away and I should be able to tough it out..but then I think oh my God MONDAY is a century away how am I not supposed to eat or sleep til Monday afternoon?
This is NOT what I ordered for the week. Tell me I'm doing the right thing..somebody..anybody..
