When I was about 5 months pregnant with my daughter, I started having a pretty bad toothache in a lower right molar. I initially attributed this pain to a lack of calcium due to the pregnancy.
9 months later, the pain is so excruciating that I can't sleep at night. I spend most of the night screaming and crying, and normally, I have a very high pain tolerance.
The problem is, the pain is now spread across my entire mouth. It seems like every tooth hurts (some more than others and it's constantly changing). My jaw has started locking up as well.
The only thing that works is a heating pad and even that remedy is beginning to fail. I don't notice any strange bumps or severe swelling. Help! .... Visitor from NY
I have no way of knowing what your dental condition is, but it sounds to me like you have a serious infection.
You need to see a dentist for a professional opinion and treatment AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!!!
What you have done for this has not worked in the past, is not working now, and is sure to get worse as you postpone treatment.
