I've had impacted wisdom teeth and several toothaches which were helped considerably by either several aspirin or Excedrin PM. But this one was by a mile the worst I'd ever had, it felt like someone was using an ice cold chisel and a hammer on my tooth. The cold winter air would make it worse. Even walking on a cement floor would make it worse. It was a molar with top and middle hollowed out. This went on for several days and meds wouldn't touch it. Finally I laid down with a heating pad turned on high, against the side of my face, and just laid there and let it burn for a few hours (no skin damage). The heat must have killed the nerve because it never hurt after that. I already had an appt to get it out in 2 weeks.
