Hi to everyone. Thanks for reading. I am having severe severe pain in upper first molar on my LHS. Absolute agony. On prescription painkillers but not much help. The worst thing is that this has been ongoing for the last 5-6 weeks!! I have been to see 4 different dentists, one was an endodontist! but they refuse to do anything because the x ray is clear.
I have been to a gp and I insisted going on Lyrica and then Neurotonin after as I felt maybe it was a nerve problem- no good. Then the Gp tried me on antibiotics to see if i had a sinus infection- still no change to the toothache. Tried night guard- no good. I am at my wits end. Being in this constant state of pain has really affected my wellbeing. I have depression as a result and I am taking prozac and sleeping tablets daily. never felt so low in my life.
I am going to see a facial pain specialist in cork city on wednesday. It really is my last chance. If he can't diagnose what is wrong, I really dont know what I will do.
Personally I feel it is definitely a problem with only this tooth. no other teeth have any pain/problems. I would gladly have it extracted but i CANT find a dentist that willl! Its so frustrating. It like they think I am making it up! Never had any problems like this before. I suspect there is a crack but there is nothing visible.
This is my first post in a long long time but it would be great if anyone could get back to me with the name of a dentist that is open and willing to listen to the patients problem as opposed to insisting on clinical evidence. I dont know how this could be done.. maybe by private message? I need someone in the cork city/county area.
Bottom line.. my own body is telling me that if the tooth was out- the pain would be gone. I have tried practically everything else anyway! please get in touch if you can recommend a dentist that would be willing to do this extraction for me. The pain is unbearable and it is ruining my life BUT NO dentist I have met seems to care about the daily hell my life has become.
All i want is this tooth that is at the back of my mouth, completely not visible to be removed. Please help me. Any dentists out there in Cork please get in touch!!! I am desperately seeking help. I am begging you for any help at all. If any boards readers have a recommendation for a dentist that is a bit 'old school' and perhaps willing to do tis extraction please contact.
Thank you very much, I will hope for a response. Thank you for reading this, it has helped me to put it all down. Hope to hear from someone soon. Kind regards
