I don’t know what is happening! Because I am aware of my body and am well-read in the arena of holistic health and amalgam removal, my reasoning is that this outrageous tooth pain could be due to eating a lot more sugar lately than I normally have (see my view on addiction– I’m addicted to sugar bad right now!). Sugar causes inflammation and decreases pain tolerance, so I guess that could be factoring in, but it’s almost unbelievable how much they hurt!
My molars that had amalgams removed are just THROBBING and PULSING in PAIN!
I took two advils and though they should be kicking in by now (probably took ’em 30 minutes ago!), the pain just got increasingly worse and worse. It is pure agony; I’ve pretty much never had anything hurt like this.
From reading, I know it’s normal to feel some pain after removal (and sometimes people even feel severe pain) but this is ridiculous. Is it because I had a cupcake earlier and then had hard green beans and chewy steak?
Are there certain foods that make your teeth hurt more with the composite filling? @#$% it hurts so bad. I am not a big pill-popper, but I am certainly going to take more painkiller. I also swished my mouth with echinacea.
It could possibly be infected. My one tooth especially. It hurts at least a few times a week. I just hope I’m not one of those people that is sensitive to the composite or something and will have continual problems because the way I feel right now I wish I had never even gotten them out!
