I probably should see my dentist again, soon.

For several days now, either the top or bottom wisdom tooth (I believe), on the left side of my face, has been hurting. Some times, it prevents me from sleeping. A couple times, i've had a momentary shooting pain which caused me to feel disoriented for a second.

The pain comes and goes, so it's not a 24/7 thing. But it still happens nearly every day, and I rarely take painkillers... because I usually just don't need them.

:( This'll add another $500 to my debt... but it has to be done. *sigh*

Oh and Hsiaokwai got his MRI results. He has a torn disc, and another herniated disc. The latter has the potential for rupture, especially if doing physical activities... so I want him to be careful. He's doing physical therapy, but I just don't know how that's going to work out, as I'd think it wouldn't be good for his discs. My dad had a herniated disc that later ruptured, while my mom was pregnant with me and they were moving to a house... so I know it's nothing to mess around with. :|

I'm going through the same thing with my wisdom teeth. Actually, it's only one side for me too...and I get those same shooting pains that you're talking about. It's so intense, but it does go away... The pain comes and goes for me too, but it's still a pain (literally.) I'm debating going to the dentist myself... I don't know what would be worse, the pain of having them out...or putting up with the pain of having them there, haha. Plus, I don't think I am covered right now either... so i'll probably just wait it out for a bit longer. I feel your pain, though.

I'm sorry to hear about Hsiaokwai's MRI results too :( I hope it doesn't rupture.... hopefully he's careful so it doesn't.

*hugs* I'm taking painkillers constantly now. I rarely have the need for them, so it bothers me just a bit that I'm popping them left and right now, haha.

I'm sure if they pulled them out, they'd give some strong prescription painkillers too for afterwards. I'll be damned if they don't put me out totally during the procedure, if I end up getting it done.

I'm trying to keep my spirits up in regards to my boyfriend. But still, he works in a food service warehouse, and it's a physically demanding job that you're really not meant to stay in forever. So if he got surgery or any other treatment, and he recovered from it perfectly, who's to say this won't happen again? :(
