Tooth started hurting last week. I was up all night Wednesday, because of the pain. I actually thought about suicide. Made it to the dentist Thursday and they recommended that I see and endodontist. I had already had a root canal on the tooth. So now I have to wait till Wednesday to see the specialist. I look like I have a wad of Mail Pouch in my mouth because of the swelling. I am taking antibiotics and Vicodin. If I didn't have the Vicodin I would be climbing the walls. Anybody have any home remedies or suggestions. I am ready to jam a needle into my cheek or gum to relieve the pressure. I am going out of my mind. It is hurting all the way from my tooth, up my jaw, all the way to my ear.
