Fill up a hot water bottle with hot water, and then wrap it in a pillow case or something, and rest it against the side which it hurting, like using it as a pillow or something. Works wonders for me, and works for belly cramps too!

Thanks for you comments and advice.....

After a rough weekend I went to dentist and after hearing lots of nasty rumers about him! I actually found him very kind, nice and gental, he put me on antibiotics and told me I have an abcess! and would most likley loose the tooth, I wouldnt mind but I look after my teeth, infact hubby says I clean them too much...... anyway thanks again.

I have the same issue, ive looked after my teeth but having no end of problems now partly because theyre just so weak and partly due to damage my orthodontist did taking my brace off as a kid.
Been waiting since July to have 2 very bad teeth removed, im supposed to be on priority because ones permanently infected and theyre both crumbling each week but the appointments still not till November 11th!!

Know how you feel :|

awww poor you dawsons mice ....... thats awfull......... silly to mention
because im sure you know, but if your dentist cant fit you in I belive you can get an emergency appointment at your local dental access center, I think they might pull your teeth for you. I was told this today by a friend. hope this helps.

Bet they dont knock you out first though :?

My dentist actually said they'd be reluctant to do at least one of these without anasthetic because he 'thinks it will go surgical' :shock:

I cant wait for the day but i dont want to go :cry:

oh hell, sorry to hear that, all I can do is wish you well with it. Toothache drags you down even over a short period, so roll on nov 11th eh!

And I have just run out of pain killers ...... grrrrrrrrr :cry:

Aww how kind of you to remember. Im currently feeling bruised and tired now and ive slept all afternoon!
They didnt tell me till last minute but apparently each time you do anasthetic youre more aware of whats happening at the time although you are ment to forget again next day.

..I was pretty aware of what was going on this time, never knew anything last time and I cant say it was pleasant at all but at least its done now and hopefully this is the start of feeling better in the long run

You're GP would probably prescribe some antibiotics if you ask nicely and explain your history! Otherwise Ibuprofen is good both pain and inflamation...

No they won't. I had an abcess in my gum caused by a bad tooth, they wouldn't take it out until the penicillin had cleared it up. I was in agony :( Hope you both feel better soon Dangermouse and Dawsons mice!

yes thanks for asking .... well my gp refused to see me... and i got the appoimtment date wrong it was the 19th feb not the 4th so i had to wait till then.... in the meantime i used salt water. On the 19th she xrayed the tooth and saw the problem but as it had stopped hurting so saide to wait n see... guess what? well two weeks later the blasted thing blew up agin leaving me looking like a hamster. so two treatments of antibiotics and half a root canal treatment later im feeling alot easier..... I have to say the dentist that did the canall work was brilliant... just have to go back a few time to have the work compleated
