why do my teeth hurt so bad

Not long ago, Dakota Hickey posted this devastating confession on
Not all days, but most my teeth hurt and I have no way to stop the pain. I live in the USA and cannot afford insurance to get it fixed. If I had the money to get them all pulled and replaced I would, but the dental place told me it would cost over $7,000. My life has been going well for the most part lately and I feel horrible for even thinking of wanting to die to escape the pain.


I have 2 kids that need me and a family that loves me, but love doesn't buy new teeth. I did it to myself back in highschool by throwing up after each meal. I don't smile often and when I actually do I have to cover my mouth because I don't want others to be grossed out by my teeth. Most of the time I just grin to the right side. My kids don't like me going to their school, meeting their friends and teachers because they are embarrassed of my mouth.


I try not to show it, but that hurts more than the physical pain I endure from the infection that is spreading. Anyways, thanks for taking time to read this and I hope that you (the reader) live in a country that would help with dental problems. Toothache started Christmas eve night. Feel asleep as it wasn t that bad and then woke up 2 hours later in the worse pain I ve ever felt. 2 hours later went to hospital where they said tooth was decaying badly and needed to be pulled (no infection).


I told them I still wanted penicillin and they gave perscstiption for naproxen to treat pain. They also gave needle directly in gums. No relief from any of this tried throughout Christmas day to folow treatment. Finally went to dentist today. He said infection in the root that needs to clear before he can pull.


Said stick with antibiotic and prescribed something else for pain Tylenol with codeine taken every six hours. First time taking it gave moderate relief for a couple hours after couple hours intense pain back. Finally time for second dose and expecting at least a couple hours of relief nothing. Called dentist at like 7pm surprisingly still opened asked what to do was directed to either come in within the next 30 minutes to get a different prescription or take another dose.


To painful to drive and sister not around to drive me so no go on going in. Took another dose and no relive. Set appointment to see if he can pull tomorrow saying infection has cleared. Tried every home remedy I could find on line and nothing helped what can I do already missed three days of work and sleep. Getting desperate and at whits end. Please help!!!
