Nurse Milli :

Hi there, how are you?

Customer:

hey:) ooh ive had better days...MAJOR Wisdom tooth pain...

Customer:

the only thing helping at the moment is an ice cube in between top and bottom back teeth...

Nurse Milli :

I wondered about that one time when we talked...you mentioned jaw pain and I remember asking you if you still had your wisdom teeth

Customer:

oooh those are coming out asap

Nurse Milli :

can you take some Advil? It would help greatly!

Customer:

my consult was next week.. they upped it to tomorrow...

Nurse Milli :

good!

Customer:

i took excedrin about 2 hours ago...

Nurse Milli :

is it helping?

Customer:

eeeeh... yes and no... the icecubes are helping more....

Nurse Milli :

have they broken through the gums yet or are they impacted?

Customer:

they have all broken through, 1 is impacted. but theres one that is badly decayed on the bottom right

Customer:

only 3 are coming out + a molar

Nurse Milli :

OUCH

Customer:

but i cant keep "sucking" on ice all night... do you think orajel would help????

Nurse Milli :

you will be surprised how much better you will feel when you get these out...your headaches will greatly improve

Customer:

OH! EMG came back normal, and all my blood tests came back normal too, they did a CBC and kidney/liver check

Nurse Milli :

Orajel will help somewhat yes

Nurse Milli :

Customer:

I thought i was in pain before... holy crap....

Customer:

all i want is to get through the next few hours... my apt is at 2:30 tomorrow

Nurse Milli :

mouth pain is terrible...especially from wisdom teeth

Customer:

OMG Its awful!! never have i felt THAT Much pain!!!

Customer:

its like i cant tell if its top or bottom anymore...

Customer:

started with the bottom right, which i expcted

Nurse Milli :

wow, that's terrible

Customer:

but maaaan that pain exploded this afternoon...

Customer:

is it understandable that other teeth would start hurting as a result?

Nurse Milli :

you may have an abscessed tooth as well...the one that is decayed

Nurse Milli :

yes, other teeth will hurt because of this

Customer:

ooooh this sucks...

Customer:

the only thing that really seems to be helping is the icecubes

Nurse Milli :

gosh, I am so sorry :(

Nurse Milli :

mouth pain is horrible company

Customer:

biiig time....

Customer:

Customer:

Customer:

Customer:

like nothing is swollen or anything like that...

Customer:

Nurse Milli :

they might but if it's abscessed, they may have you take antibiotics first for a few days....all depnds

Customer:

Customer:
