My Fun Filled Weekend…How was Yours? LOL!

I've had a craptastic day. On top of worrying about little Peanut, I woke up this morning sick as could be. My left cheek was swollen and hot and I felt like my head was going to explode. I was in so much pain that all I could do was rock back and forth and cry (it was bad). So, my hubby called that 1-800-Dentist number to try and find me an emergency dentist. They were able to find a nearby dental clinic that would see me today so I go expecting to hear that I have something majorly wrong with my teeth causing all the pain. Nope. So, they told me I did have a crack in my molar and a little decay probably under my filling but nothing that would be causing the pain I was describing. So, then he said I have TMJ. I've never heard of it, but basically the pain i'm feeling is from clenching my teeth together all the time so my muscles are swollen. So I have to go buy one of those night guard things to put in my mouth at night so I wont clench my teeth. I'm supposed to take Advil 3 times a day to try and help with the swelling in my mouth (caused from the clenching). Then I go back next week to get my molar filled and my teeth cleaned.

After the appointment I was still feeling awful and the dumb dentist didn't give me anything for my pain I went to urgent care and the doc took one look in my ear and said "Wow, it's completely blocked". So he takes out this scraper thing and sticks it way down into my ear. OMG! The pain! I was trying not to scream, but it hurt so bad. He kept jamming it down in there and it hurt so bad. It turns out I have an ear infection and a sinus infection so now i'm on heavy duty antibiotics. At least this doc was nice enough to give me some pain meds so I can sleep tonight.

I feel like such a pile of crapola right now. My teeth are still throbbing, and my left cheek is swollen like someone smacked me, and my ear hurts. Ugh! What a fun filled Saturday this has turned out to be :(
