Just afew days ago I had a toothache, and so now I've had it for afew days and it's incredible how fast it starts to hurt worse and worse. So last night it started hurting like ***l, so I took Tylonol PM But then this morning...oh my god...it was excrusciating! So my mom finally got in touch with a dentist that was at home and he filled a prescription of antibiotics for me and my mom went and picked them up. I just wanna say thank God for that guy because those antibiotics worked great, even though it did take a while . He said that it sounded like I could either have a root canal or the tooth removed, and I am really hoping I can just have the darn thing removed . My mom went through the same thing and said it didn't hurt having it removed, and I hope she's not just saying that. Right now under my chin where my tooth is it's really sore and I'm hoping that's normal. I am SO scared of going to the dentist tomorrow morning, but I also can't wait.

So if they're are any dentists or doctors out there reading this, please please help me and tell me of what you know and what you think I should do and all of that.

Also I just want to mention that I LOVE you doctors, whatever kind of doctor you are, I just want to thank all of you for helping people, and inspiring me to maybe do something medical as well.

Please write me! :]

Thanks again! :)
