Last night I had some pain in my tooth when I ate my nightly ice cream (a girl's got to have something to look forward to!). It was a weird sensation, and probably a smarter woman would have put the ice cream down, but not me, I ate the whole bowl in pain.
Today at work when I was drinking my first cup of red raspberry tea, I had the same pain. Now I was worried. I thought for sure I had a cavity.
Luckily, my dentist was able to see me after work. I don't have a cavity. I may have a nerve issue. It may be related to clenching. The dentist asked me if I am under more stress than usual. I wanted to say YES, of course, things are stessful right now. A.'s job isn't great, I don't have a school lined up yet for September, my younger sister could announce her pregnancy any day now and my transfer seems like forever a way. Instead I said, "not really".
If the pain doesn't subside by Thursday, I will have to see a specialist. Just what I need, another doctor.
