Basically, 6 years ago I went to the dentist and was told I needed 2 fillings. I was 16 at the time and had- still do - a fear of dentists and needles. So I left without getting it filled.
I did not have any problems with it until a few weeks ago when I was bravely chewing gum and I chewed on what turned out to be a part of one of the teeth that needed a filling which had had a hole in it for ages. So now I am essentially left with half the shell of the tooth.
In the last month, that tooth and a couple of others have been hurting me. The pain is causing headaches that make it hard for me to sleep. I have swollen lymph nodes hhe size of golf balls behind my neck and the pain is also in my jaw, my shoulders and down my arms. I feel tired/lethargic and my teeth are very very sensitive to hot and cold.
My gums bleed when I brush my teeth and then throb for a while after.
I am waiting on an appointment with my dentist which should take another 3 weeks and I can't afford to go private.
I'm am applying clove oil on them for pain and taking 2 ibuprofens every 2 or so hours as the pain is unbearable.
