It's me again.
I went to the dentist yesterday due to a broken & chipped tooth. He saw I was in a lot of pain and told me to schedule for next week. Plus he gave me pain pills to hold me over till then.
The receptionist couldn't find an appointment right away and said she'd call us soon. They didn't call yesterday afternoon & the dentist is closed till Monday.
Last night my pain got A LOT worse. I took two pain pills and like in the past I felt very sick to my stomach. I didn't throw up but still this morning I feel sick.
The dentist website showed they are open a few hours this morning but I called and they are closed till Monday. It said leave a message and they'd call me back Monday but I didn't leave one. Plus it had an number for emergencies.
Now I thought I'd take some Advil (which upsets my stomach and gives me cramps) but the problem is if it doesn't work I'm stuck waiting 6hrs to take a pain pill.
I could take a pain pill (just one this time) but well I'm think it will make me throw up. (I'm a stay at home mom with 3 kids. My oldest is 13, next a 9yr old & 7yr old. They are here with me)
But, if I do throw up guess that would make things an emergency. I could call and get some diff. pills hopefully plus letting my dentist know the pain I am in.
I hate of thinking of sitting around in pain till Monday then only to be told to wait again a few days or I hope not a week. (sigh)
What do you think?
My pain isn't awful & I have high pain level ((I had natural childbirth plus I have a few very painful chronic illnesses such a IC a painful bladder disorder) & I get migraines a lot. But I am HURTING.
Sorry so long. Feeling lost and worried.
To make things even WORSE my birthday is Sunday. My kids have been looking forward to taking me out and I am sure something is planned at my mother in laws on Sunday. I know I won't feel up to an hour right there, visiting plus eating (eating hurts) & then another hour ride back.
