Hi! I posted several weeks ago about having constant toothache in same tooth for months. Went to dentist a couple weeks ago to have old filling taken out and sedative filling put in. The sedative filling didn't work, now I have to see a neurologist on 08/11/2000 to see if I possibly have a neuralgia (dentist had a patient who had somewhat similar symptoms as mine and he did 3 root canals on her before he sent her to neurologist), if I don't have a neuralgia, he will perform root canal if I don't have a nerve problem. Problem is, the tooth is causing very bad pain and soreness (aside from the normal dull ache I keep having). I called the dentist first and asked what they suggested, the nurse said Motrin. I then called my primary physician and asked a nurse what she recommended, she asked the doctor and doctor also said Motrin (about 800mg's). I have tried all of that, nothing works (any OTC medicines you name, I have tried). I haven't asked about painkillers, but I'm thinking I need something, I can't keep missing work over a toothache. Is it okay for me to ask about painkillers? If anyone has any suggestions I would really appreciate it. Thank You!!
