I have the worst tooth pain the last few days. I have a tooth that i got filled a few weeks ago but at the time dentist said he didnt think it would be longterm, that id probably need root canal or to remove it.
Anyway the problem returned sooner then i thought. The pain is right up to my ear & down to my throat, so i got my dentist on the phone yesterday (he is off till the 4th). He said it sounded like i have an infection, so he said he wouldnt be able to do anything until that was cleared up & gave me a prescription for antibiotics & painkillers (Tylex).
The pain is unbearable at times – I have tried every pain killer, tyles, nurofen plus, ponston but when it starts throbing it feels like ive taken nothing – anyone have any auggestions?
At the moment it is just sore but it can change in seconds to a throbing pain that makes me cry.
Havent been out over Christmas but was suppose to be going out tonight, really want to go even if i cant drink with the tablets but at the moment it doesnt look likely.January 1, 2011 at 12:43 pm #106807chewieodieParticipant
I landed up at the nowdoc same reason… just after Christmas…
the antibiotic has taken the pain from me… but she gave me two painkillers too…. Melfin and Zydol….
Both on prescription though…. 🙁
I found that when the antibiotic kicked in, it made things so much better.
My thoughts and sympathies are with you!January 1, 2011 at 12:47 pm #106808
Thanks for reply.
How long did it take for the antibiotics to kick in?
Did the pain cause your ear & throat to hurt too? Was beginning to think that there was something else wrong with me too but dh says its all caused my the tooth pain/ infection.January 1, 2011 at 1:17 pm #106809chewieodieParticipant
Oh I felt terrible…. blowing my nose felt like my head was going to explode…. 😥 and the thing is, I had root canal… and then a couple of days after it all my face started swelling up too…. but yep, felt like I had a bad head cold, and nauseous too…. and I knew that things weren’t right because I’ve had root canal before on a few occasions and never went through this.
Took a couple of days for the antibiotics to do their job….January 1, 2011 at 2:39 pm #106811JedtKeymaster
Tylex are very strong painkillers, they usually take about 30 mins to kick in and when they do, they really work. There is codeine in them and they really help numb the pain.
I had surgery few years ago and was on Tylex afterwards and found them very effective.
Hope they start to kick in soon and help you feel bit better.
An old remedy is to rub some raw garlic on the affected area around the tooth, it soothes toothache. Not the nicest taste but if it helps with the toothache, worth a shot.
take care. xJanuary 1, 2011 at 3:39 pm #106813
Tylex are like solpadine, not much stronger! i had them after my section and found them crap 🙄 I might have some Zydol here, will have a look… they might be out of date as i havent used them in years
you can get a thing in the chemist called clove oil and dab on the gum/tooth, it might work it might not, but its cheap and might do the trick…. neurofen plus is good for dental. My mam swears by whiskey on some cotton wool. I could cope with any sort of pain but not dental pains, nothing worse!
Hope you get sorted soon, ring the Doc on Call if your in alot of painJanuary 3, 2011 at 2:52 pm #106875AnonymousInactive
Have to second the clove oil…old fashioned but it does work. If nothing else the taste of it will take your mind off the pain 😆 Hope your feeling bit better by now.January 3, 2011 at 6:15 pm #106879BiddyMember
Nothing worse than a tooth ache,I had an awful one over Christmas,tried everything but the whiskey on cotton wool worked the best to ease it ..ended up with an abcess on tooth and got it out ,then got infection and antibiotics.( rubbed whiskey on my gums as well as biting down on the cotton wool soaked in whiskey and it defo helped to ease the pain)…January 6, 2011 at 5:33 pm #107013

Oh yeah, meant to say, dentist told me to get nurofen plus for pain after extraction but when i went into chemist they said that they were not recommended for blood clotting!!! I never heard that before. they told me to get panadol extra instead.January 7, 2011 at 11:08 am #107058happymumblemumParticipant
Glad to hear you had it out, its a great relief…
Didn’t take any thing after my extraction but regretted it a few hours later whilst in work at the Shakira concert having to do crowd control and had 9,000 people screaming in my face, the pain and noise was ringing round my mouth and head..kinda buzzing in the raw hole aaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh 😆 😆 😆
Did you keep the tooth? My dentist said did I want to see it..I said noooo wayJanuary 7, 2011 at 5:42 pm #107088
