I had a terrible throbbing toothache that kept me awake for two days. I unsuccessfully tried acetaminophen, ibuprofen and Hydrocodone/APAP. The latter made me go high without stopping the pain. To my surprise cold H2O was able to stop the pain and throbbing in about 5 seconds. However, the pain recurred in about 5 minutes – most likely due to saliva or air or heat generated spontaneously in the closed mouth. I had not slept for more than 60 hours and started to worry that I’d go nuts and start breaking things. Through my creative faculty of imagination I figured out that I needed to bring my bed near a cold water faucet and connect a flexible pipe to my mouth in a sleeping position. I connected another pipe from the mouth to the drain and used some clips to keep the lips shut and pipes in secure position. Even though this contraption was able to kill pain it did not take me long to realize that I needed to stay awake all the time lest I chock with water and die! With this frustration and increasing feeling of going nuts due to sleep deprivation it behooved to seek the sage advice of home remedy experts online. That’s how I landed here. I tried a thing after a thing as I read through the blog thread until nothing seemed to work. Finally I made up my own concoction based on ingredients discretely described in this thread: Put 4 tea bags (black tea) in ½ cup of H2O, microwave to a boil to get a thick black tea extract, prepare ½ cup of baking soda [Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate or Sodium bicarbonate or NaHCO3] – dissolve to saturation, add mixed both reagents [tea + baking soda] to homogeneity, take a mouthful of the concoction and let it flood the area with the ruthless tooth for 10=15 minutes – absolutely do not swallow the stuff, spit the stuff out and rinse your mouth 2 – 3 times with cold water, wait to confirm that the pain won’t come back! I need to warn though that the concoction tasted worse than anything I know including elephant pee. Good luck!
