Re: Kinda disappointed
Honey, you have taken the right steps here by giving Hubby the meds to hold. Good for you! Sometimes there are just situations that are going to crop up that one of us, addict or not, is going to legitimately need pain relief. Do not feel any guilt please about using a narcotic correctly for its intended use. Just be wise, *** you have, in letting the prescriber know up front and putting safety nets, like having someone else hold them, in place. Job well done. Smiles.
Oil of Clove... from any health food store for about $4 can be a great source of relief also. It will numb the gums as well as Novacaine! I used it while I was undergoing some dental work after I had stopped pain meds. It is a good resource to keep in the house for dental flare ups. Just rub it on the gums and I think you will be amazed at the relief it offers.
Get well soon. And good job with the safety nets.
