Fillings and Head Aches...

So I failed to mention that last Wednesday when I got my hair done in South Jordan I also made a small trip to the dentist... by small I mean 3 hours and 3 fillings later... haha And I have another in a couple weeks for 2-3 more... Fun huh? I don't know why I have so many cavities - bad teeth I guess - thank goodness for dental insurance!!! I seriously brush at least twice , sometimes three times a day, floss and use a fluoride gel. Anyway when I went to get the first 3 done they did two on the top right and one on the top left. The right side of my face was so numb that my eye and nose were numb! It looked really funny when I tried to smile too. Now they are REALLY sensitive... every time I eat/drink something cold or hot or sweet.
Since yesterday morning I have had this splitting head ache. I don't think I have ever had a head ache this bad. It is just on the left side of my head and it is a strip of pain from the back of my head, over my ear and up to my forehead. It is always there in a weak state, but every once in a while it just THROBS! It was so bad last night that it would wake me up and I would be in pain for a few minutes before I could fall back to sleep. Today I started thinking about it and I wondered... do you think the sensitivity in my teeth could have anything to do with this constant head ache? Anyway - sorry for my ranting I'm just a little sick of being sick... I also must mention that I have had a cold for almost (on Friday) 4 weeks!!!! Seriously... so you can understand my frustration :)

You spent 3 hours at the dentist for 3 fillings? That is way long did you have root canals? Stephanie that's not good you should go see a doctor. Sensitivity from your teeth is normal after being worked on but it shouldn't be giving you a headache or make you sick unless you had a big abcess or something. Weird. That sounds awful go see a doctor girl.

For Christmas break a few years ago I had 7 cavities! My sister is a hygeinist and she was so mad at my dentist. A lot of new ones just get filling happy. A lot of times they go away with just brushing. I used to brush 3 x's a day as well before that. Now, I do it once or twice and I've had no problems. I have sensitive teeth too. Mines from bleaching though. Are you drinking any sports drinks or anything with sweeteners? That gives me headaches a lot. Just FYI

You can also always get a 2nd opinion on your cavities or just wait it out a little longer, if they're not bad, to see if they go away!
