I've come across many posts about nerve pain, but including gum and overall tooth pain, both of which I don't have. I have an exposed nerve in the bowl of my tooth that shocks me every 8 minutes. This shock is unexplainable, but the anxiety I get when the next one comes, adds even more stress. I read about clove oil but for toothache pain, not these nerve shocks. Swishing with Listerine helps for about 20 minutes, ora-gel only numbed the side of my mouth, but when the jolts attempted to return, I could still feel a good 50\\% of it. Sensodyne helped for a bit of time, but ultimately, I would say swish the Listerine, then chew sugar free gum. Once the gum has completely softened, place the gum directly into the bowl of the tooth and let it sit there. I can still feel attempted jolts but only at about 10\\%. It's Memorial Day Weekend and emergency dentists are difficult to find, plus I have no money. Mind you, I've been replacing new gum every 8 hours, but I can successfully sleep for a long duration now. I know it won't work for everyone, but my post specifically targets nerve pain only within the tooth, nothing around the gum line or base.
