New Drug Combo

I have had a tooth and jaw ache for a few months and now the mess has exploded in pain. I am the kind of guy that puts off seeing a doctor or dentist until a limb is falling off or a tooth swelling my face up. Not machismo bullshit, I just hate getting all dressed up for something non life threatening. 

Contacted my dentist’s office for an appointment and they said December 8 earliest. Also told me (reading my whining mind) that I can take ibuprofen and acetaminophen TOGETHER. 400 ibuprofen and 1000 acetaminophen. Just took it WISELY WITH FOOD. They said it will work just as good as a narcotic. 

Ohhhhhh shit I love this drug combo!

No worries: Not going to overdo it. I am mindful of my poor abused liver and kidneys. Just got a thank you note from my liver this morning for not drinking in 3 days. Felt sick yesterday then realized it was my body reacting to NOT drinking. Economics and a logical mind are good resources for not drinking. I am no feeling no pain and very groggy – THAT due to lack of sleep from pain keeping me up. I was told that due to allergies I can use diphenhydramine with it too. Sounds like a recipe for a comatose old man. At least I can get some sleep. 

Incredible relief from pain now… ohhhhh yesssss… and it is all over the counter meds!

@zombieinfusedtea You have a very cool name. Thanks! I think dentists are either going out of business or jammed with patients now due to covid. Every patient is a major task due to safety concerns. IS good to find legal pain killers that will let me get some sleep. I have a high pain threshold unless it is in my face. I get banged up in a factory a lot and you live with it. Toothaches are the great levelers of pain for all I think 😉 I think we all wish we could do that movie crap with pliers pulling out your own teeth. Yeah, only the movies 😉 You have a good morning afternoon or night. Cheers!

@zombieinfusedtea Canadians… more CANADIANS!

😉 Lately the superior folks on this continent. Great song. Dude has a great voice. Only have 2 of their songs on my play list. DID bring back one of those classic childhood memories of strings and teeth. You cool! thanks.

Tooth pain is among the worst. I worry about infection, though. That can kill you.

@solovoice Yes sir. Few years ago had an abscess and got the tooth pulled just in time. Dentist said it was on it’s way to my brain. Said it AFTER the work was done so I would not scream in the chair, I think 😉 I am going to be monitoring myself for fever and swelling. Teeth are truly under rated. I cannot believe I once crunched ice cubes in my mouth as a kid… geeez.

@skobru I’m missing three teeth now in my old age…and I really do miss them. If I could afford them, I’d get implants.

@solovoice I am sorry to say that I have you beat on that 😉 I am missing 5. I may have to have another pulled. I will beg for it’s salvation! Implants are upwards of $6000 here in the USA. My dad had the money to get all implants before he died. All that metal and porcelain in his ashes so he could eat all that meat he loved so much 😉 THAT MANY implants sounds like masochism to me. Again… “DRILL BABY DRILL!”

@skobru The price I got here was $1,500 per tooth. Way out of my price range!

@solovoice That would be worth it. I have little saved and that would ruin me. I can get Social Security next October but that is barely enough to live on.

I once had an abscessed tooth and it exploded and felt so good but then I had it fixed and have had no pain since. Just take care of yourself and stay out of trouble.

@jaythesmartone Exploded… wow… THAT is some heavy stuff.

@skobru

I called it exploded but the dentist called it something else and I can’t remember….
