I woke up at 4am, coming bolt upright, sobbing in pain. My jaw felt like it was exploding, bright, burning pain up to my ear, down my neck, under my tongue. I tried the clove mouthwash, tried the saltwater rinse, got an ice pack (bag of rice), took some ibuprofen... nothing helped. The pain was so bad I was on the verge of throwing up.

I think I scared O-H when I woke him up, because I couldn’t stop crying. We went in about 4.30am. I was checked in, treated (penicillin, Zofran for nausea, and a couple of Vicodin), given prescriptions, and sent home by 5.15am. I think that was the fastest E.R. trip I have ever had.

I’m still in pain, but at least it’s dulled down. Going to call my dentist as soon as she opens, see if she can do anything. Man, I hope so! I can’t take much more of this!
