When it gets angry at me it feels like someone hit me with a hammer. And if it doesn't settle down it can go from that to feeling like a live wire jumping around in there and even made that side of my tongue hurt once. Certainly doesn't feel like 'teething' as described to me by my dentist and OS. And I never felt a thing when the rest of my wisdom teeth came in.
It doesn't matter that I'm taking ibuprofen round the clock to keep the inflammation down. If there's pressure put on it, it sets it off. It's not constant but when set off it can be irritable for two days straight.
There's no sign of infection but I did do a course of antibiotics just in case. The tooth next to it had a bigger cavity that was filled but that seems fine. Matter of fact, when I was numbed for that I could still feel the pressure on the impacted tooth and it still hurt.
I just find it crazy that a tooth without decay and no sign of infection can cause that kind of pain. And now I'm freaked out about having them out (I know I have to) because of the whole 'by the way, there's a slight chance it could affect the nerve'. Yikes. And because the pain feels like a live wire sometimes (but more regularly like a hammer) more than teething and that it wouldn't numb before makes me worry more.
