Sigh. So that great refreshed feeling from my weekend getaway didn't last very long today. I did have the gumption to get up early and take the bus to work - even walked to the Circle and ate my lunch out in the dappled sunlight and walked to the post office - but shortly after getting back to work, my tooth began to ache.
I had a filling replaced about two weeks ago and it has been super sensitive ever since - to the point where I had to call the emergency number for the dentist last Wednesday.
My dentist set me up with pain meds and hooked me up with a Endodontist - who I had an appointment with this upcoming Thursday afternoon.
BUT the pain kept coming back and back - more and more frequently. And today it was just all too much - and the meds wouldn't kick in fast enough.
I called the Endodontist and asked if they could get me in sooner. They had an opening today at 3:15.
I thought I was just going in for tests.
Well, they did test - but when they found out I needed a root canal they numbed me up and did it right then and there.
Arg! Wasn't really prepared for that today.
It completely wiped me out - drained everything I had regained.
