Lesser of two evils

Yesterday morning I had a sevre tooth ache...While I was waiting for the pain killers to kick in I used mouth wash to ease the pain...Well I had to do this for a few hours because my pain killers never kicked in and I didnt want to take more than 3 vicodin so...I end up takeing about 6 advil instead...while I was waiting for that to kick in my tooth was hurting like a motherfucker...It was the blinding kind of pain that went throughout the whole side of my head...I had to keep changing out the mouthwash as to keep the pain down to a minimuim....Well...and I knew this could happen. I ended up burning my mouth with the mouth wash...SO NOW my toungue and my gums and inside part of my lips are all blistered...The only thing that sooths THAT is of course ice cold water...A bitter twist of fate is my teeth are cold sensitive and I have to let the cold water sit in my mouth to ease the burning...BUT atleast my wisdom tooth doesnt hurt anymore...at the moment..and personaly I would rather deal with this burning. Then the pain my wisdom tooth was causeing me..So I went with the lesser of two evils...Definately not putting off getting my tooth pulled anymore because frankly Im not doin this again...Ive tried some of that spray stuff you know for sour throats...yea that just makes the burning worse for some reason....it numbs everything else but under my toungue which is where the burning is the worst...It feels better than it did yesterday...Cant eat anything that hot either...spicey hot of physically hot doesnt matter..so...I drank some spaghetti O's Yes I DRANK then....I put them in a blender and made it into almost a paste and drank it...yummy ...sigh...yea it burned my mouth like hell but Im affraid to chew anything really solid because of my tooth....So Im a happy camper YAY...I think Ill try some cold oatmeal next....

<----Hot girls always make my smile.....OW it hurts to smile WHY!!!

Of course the Spaghetti-Os hurt. Tomato is acid.

Get that tooth pulled ASAP. If the other has descended on that side, get that one done at the same time. Mashed potatoes are good. So are cream based soups, just not tomato until the blisters heal, boullion, baby food, pureed vegetables, hey, if you could drink that pureed Franco American crap, you can even stick a chicken breast in the blender. But instead of water, use chicken broth. I couldn't do it, but I couldn't drink Spaghetti-Os either if I tried.

As far as the pain goes, I think codeine is better than vicodin for mouth pain. But that could just be me.

I tried eating clam chowder that didnt go so well either it had tater chunks in it...I did eat mashed potatos but I dont like them unless they are instant....and as far as most soups I really dont like soup..but it wouldnt matter I would need something with no salt..salt it what burns....course the tomato sauce doesnt help...A chicken breast in a blender...hmmmm...that might be an idea...Saghetti-Os it what I typicially get if I cant chew...you can drink that stuff right out of the can...The only reason I blended it was to much up the meatballs...I didnt add anything to it...And Ill tell you Vicodin is the crappiest pain killer ever...unless you take it in a large dose...And Codein...Isnt that like the strongest stuff you can get aside of morphene..Im not in that much pain at least not with the burning....I was with the tooth though..thankfully it doesnt hurt anymore....now I just deal with the burning in my mouth...oh if you could only see it..my tongue is almost a ghost color white from all the blisters on it and the front part of my gums are all red...and swollen...I have noticed that Ibuprofen Is actaully working better for the burns...problem is I have to eat something with them or get a belly ache ....sigh...I shoulda had the tooth pulled last week....but the pain went away and didnt bother me until friday night....and Ive been awake since...whoo hoo...night time crazies muhahhahah

Get it pulled before you go through something like this again!

Codeine isn't the strongest thing outside of morphine. Dilaudid is and that isn't all that great, IMO. OK, so when they gave it to me in the ER, it kept me from screaming, but I was still in pain. Perocet is also stronger than codeine and also comes in larger doses.
