OK, I was doing the cold water trick. I was getting the 'benefit' that would last for a few seconds. I went to the doctor today for antibiotics until I can see dentist. She told me the water trick actually makes it worse. She told me to stop and bear it for a little while and the pin would become far less.

I stopped and for about 30 minutes I suffered greatly. Nearly enough for tears. Then, it started to drift off. The pain dropped to about 5-10% of where it was. I then did the clove oil and that took care of the rest of the pain. I have no pain for the first time in 6 days.

I will not lie, the pain when I stopped the cold water trick was intense and I thought I was going to rip my tooth out of my jaw if it lasted much longer. In the end, it paid off.

I encourage anyone doing the cold water trick to try and stop doing it so you can probably benefit from these ideas on this page.

It is my hope that someone else finds relief the way I did.

How did you quantify the pain? Is there an accurate parameter?

Well, its been about an hour, and i've got to say, i can barely notice the pain now!! :-) it was horrible, almost unbearable, but it was SOOOOO worth it!!! This is the best it's felt in days!! Find a friend find your spouse, talk to anybody you can, do whatever to keep your mind going and before you know it, it's all but gone!! Thank you SOOOO much for posting this!!!

Trying this myself now. I've had this pain for 2 days now. At some point each day I did the water trick, and like you said I just didn't want to stop it. So here goes... after hours of non-stop swilling water around my mouth I'm going to stop for as long as I can . 10.40pm - let's see what happens...

Ok, half an hour in -- the pain has almost completely gone. I have to admit that I also took 2 Zydols at the same time, so it's hard to say which remedy is having the main effect. But I'm very grateful to the poster for suggesting this, and to the commenter above -- you both gave me the courage to stop myself. No more ridiculously holding a 'spitoon' in one hand and a glass of water in the other!

I too was doing the water thing, and eventually the pain just wouldnt even go away at all, I read one of the comments that it makes the pain worse. So I decided to try it and it was unbelievably painful, I cried and sat with my feet in scolding hot water to try and divert the blood away from my tooth and down to my feet. 15 minutes and much better. Thank you to everyone on here.
