Sorry it has been a while since I have been on my blog or visited any of yours. I have been missing it terribly. I can't wait for things to settle down here so I can get back into my normal routine.
We have almost finished unpacking and are settling into the house, and all I can say is -
"I can't wait for the day we own our own home and don't have to deal with real estates anymore!"
What a nightmare I have been through! Moving is already a stressful time, but to have to deal with an unprofessional, rude and degrading property manager on top of it all has been very upsetting. Never have I been spoken to so rudely in all my life. She has abused me over the phone, made me feel like and idiot and called me a liar! Nothing seems to be going right at the moment. I am just trying to do the right thing and it just keeps blowing up in my face. I think this woman is on a power trip and can tell I am a quite person so she is taking full advantage.
I have also been dealing with a lot of tooth problems at the moment on top of everything else. I originally went in to the dentist to get my wisdom tooth looked at as it started coming through and was causing some pain. He referred me to an oral surgeon as it was too close to the nerve for him to remove it.
While I was there the dentist recommended that I get a filling in one of my teeth as there was some decay. I got the filling done but as soon as the numbness wore off later that night my whole jaw was throbbing. I took some pain killers which helped, but for the next five days it still continued to hurt and was very sensitive to hot and cold foods. I called the dentist back and they told me to come in right away and that I shouldn't be having any pain from a filling.
He then said I would need a root canal on the tooth to stop the pain. I found it weird that I didn't have any problems with this tooth before and now I needed a root canal! It's no wonder so many people hate going to the dentist. Any who, I agreed for him to do the root canal as I wanted the pain to stop and I really didn't have another choice.
(Fast forward) I got the last part of the root canal done the day before we moved, it has now been just over a week and I am getting really bad pain down the left side of my face and numbness that is spreading from my lip to my chin and is getting worse. I am so scared about it, and will be seeing a different dentist today. Obviously something is putting pressure on my facial nerve. I hope it isn't serious and that I didn't just fork out all my money for this root canal just to get it pulled out in the end :(
The worst part is he did another filling on the other side of my mouth and it is starting to have the same sensitivity to cold. I really, really don't want to go through another root canal. Especially with all the trouble I am having with this one.
Has anyone else experienced anything like this before? It would be great to find out what I may be dealing with. I have tried looking on the Internet, but can't really find much *sigh*.
And since I always like to have a picture to go with my posts, here is a quick one we took yesterday after cleaning our old house -
UPDATE: I went to the dentist yesterday and found out that the root canal I just got done has an infection that is putting pressure on my facial nerve which is causing the numbness. I am on antibiotics at the moment, but I will probably have to loose the tooth :(
The dentist who did the root canal left a gap at the base of one of the roots so bacteria is building up in there. I am really upset that I have just wasted over $1200 in getting it done, not to mention the painful process of it all. I am trying not to dwell to much on it though.
At least I still have my wisdom teeth, so the dentist said they would just replace the ones I get removed. I can't wait for this all to be over and done with. It has been a nightmare.
Thanks so much everyone for all of your well wishes, it has made me feel a lot better. Hopefully I will get around to all of your blogs in the next week to see what I have missed.
