Erythromycin not working - what to do - I am in AGONY! (tooth related so no need to get too excited)
I have a manky tooth - needs to come out but the infection has to be cleared first. It hurts so, sooooo much and I am now vomiting and having abdominal pain because of either the Nurofen, Codeine, Paracetamol or Antibiotics or all 3.
Started 4 tabs a day does of ABs on Sunday - surely they should be working a bit by now.
What do I do? Help me, I need simple instructions.
Have not taken Codeine since lunch as tummy hurts to much and I think I will vom if I do but the pain is tooooooooooooooo muuuuuuuuuuch!
God, poor you. Yes it sould be working by now. You should not be feeling like this. Get youself down to the em dentist tomorrow. Tooth ache is one of the worst pains ever. i really hope you get it sorted.
when i had exactly what you are describing, the only thing that helped the pain was biting downon something with the manky tooth and sitting up on the sofa to sleep for most of the night. if i led down the pain got 100x worse.
i took some paramol with something else and that didnt help.
in the end i took one of my mums' morphine tablets and although it didnt shift the pain, it made me dopey enough to laugh about it then go to sleep!!
i had anti'bs, closely followed by the dreaded thrush which took my mind of it!
the anti'bs should be working by now though. did he give you strong ones?
i was given the strongest ones he could give me.
sorry, i know it's nasty. i had 4 out if that makes you feel any better!
I have metronizadole in the cupboard left over from when xdp had wisdom teeth out. Shall I take and jib off the Erythromycin then? Would be a bit like playing nurse but who cares when in this much pain.
Stomach pain could now be overtaking tooth pain.
My gums look okay - I've never had gum probs so not sure what to look for. I have close together teeth and a v. small jaw and this is tooth next to wisdom tooth which is also coming out because my wisdom teeth are inaccessible even with a kid's toothbrush, pretty much.
Will I be in agony if I take any kind of meds now? My stomach feels as if it is bloody angry, I don't want to annoy it further.
'spect you are all in bed so not expecting replies. Funny LL you should mention but this happened to me also when I broke my wisdom tooth in half 2 xmases ago...
We are supposed to be getting trollied tomorrow night in Mike's name. We couldn't bung an eighth in with the coffin at the crematorium so needs must...is that okay. (Leaving aside the fact that I haven't smoked since I was 22 or something and will probably keel over anyway).
I was actually think I'd just drink Champagne and not smoke....
If I left off the Metronidazole tonight would I be okay for late tomorrow?
