    Woke up in the middle of the night with a back tooth on the right throbbing with pain. Pretty sure it's heading for an abscess. Called the dentist and have an appointment for this afternoon. ...I know the course - Antibiotics and then come back another day.

    But now, the left side much be getting jealous because now the matching tooth on the other side is doing the same hurting - thump, thump, thump - dance! My whole jaw hurts when I move it.

    This will be a rough weekend. And I have to work tomorrow. yuck!

    If this is the case, you might have a sinus infection.

    This seems to be how I always start - my teeth hurt. Not always the ones nearest my sinuses, either.

    Sending you lots of anti-pain thoughts!

    I was thinking sinus, too, especially since it was happening on both sides. I know, I know, it could be "sympathetic pain," but still, the antibiotics may be useful if it is a sinus infection. Either way, you're going to be okay. So sorry for the pain, though.

    No fun at all! We'll hope for a sinus infection.

    Ewww. Tooth pain is something I get in nightmares, really I always have. I get nightmares my teeth are flared up with abcesses etc. I'm hopeful yours is a sinus infection and is fixed up quick. Yuckers!!!!

    Have you had wisdom teeth removed already?

    Thank you for your kind thoughts. I did nothing this weekend including turning on the computer. My left back molar has a failed root canal and the right back molar needs a root canal. I need to see a specialist to see if the teeth can be saved before the dentist will do anything. No since doing a lot of expensive work if it won't help. Until then, it's antibiotics and vicadin.

    I must of had a sinus infection too because my head has been draining ever since I started the antibiotics.

    Now it's just a matter of the specialist having an opening soon.
