Hi ladies...I am hoping someone can help me with this worry. I will start from the beginning.
About ten years ago I had a root canal done on one of my top left molars...due to a toothache. For many years after it would cause pain and my face would hurt, for a few days around my period.
Two years ago I finally had it pulled because it seemed to really be bothering me all the time. But getting it pulled didn't stop the 'toothache'
Fast forward to the past month...We bought a hot tub. Started with Bromine but i reacted to it with burning skins and especially in my genital area within two days so we switched right over to chlorine. I started getting headaches within a few days of using it but didn't even think about the hot tub being the cause. Finally about a week ago, I got out of the hot tub and my face swelled and I felt like I had been viciously assaulted...lol. So I stayed out of the hot tub and the headache subsided...but as usual my jaw still ached. I have not gone in the hot tub since.
Then last night...Oh my Lord...it brought me to my knees. It was like a nerve pain that I have never felt before. Came on for two minutes at a time...and it was so bad that I was almost in tears but I am tougher than that...so I just sat on the sofa and bounced my legs tried to alleviate the horrendous pain. It was as bad as labour...maybe worse. When i tried to lay down it came back over and over with a vengence. I finally decided to try and sleep sitting up.
Today I have a dull ache in my jaw as usual...and the back of my neck/head has a tension to it that is not quite a headache.
Have any of you experienced this?
I am definitely going to see both my dentist and doctor next week. I have not been to my doctor in many years....lol he is going to be shocked to see me. But i cannot live with this pain. There is absolutely no way. I have never felt anything that excrutiating in my life. And quite frankly...after reading google i am little scared
Thanks for listening.
