It's 4 a.m. And I have tried just about everything to get some relief from a tooth that lost a filling and has an exposed nerve. 4 lortab and 8 ibuprofen didn't even touch it! Did the chloraseptic which worked for about 30 minutes the first time and stopped working on the second try. Tea bag worked for a few minutes but that was it. Have whiskey but husband keeps it in the freezer and its way too cold for swishing right now. I did put some on a cotton ball and rubbed all around the tooth and that has helped quite a bit. I also found that laying down is what really seems to bring on the pain the most. So while the whiskey is warming up am sitting up one the couch and having a cigarette, I guess if I can sleep sitting up I may get a couple of hours is sleep.
