I’m in agony. Had dental pain for three days now, went to usual dentist (usually very good). After an xray they said it was either a wisdom tooth or a crack in my palate from a procedure several months ago. They insisted on doing a root canal in a tooth that had a filling in that area, even though I argued the pain wasn’t centred there. Now they’ve closed, left me with some painkiller called ‘Valon’ or some such thing, which doesn’t even touch the pain and I just want to curl up into a ball and die.
Except I can’t, because it hurts too much.
