this is my first bout of real health anxiety...started 3 months ago with MS/ALS/Lymes Disease, I've rationalized all of those away but this ONE thing.
my wisdom tooth game in about 3 years ago and it's definitely impacted, but I haven't had serious problems. Just an occasional soreness that always went away in a day or two, sometimes with a slight sore jaw/throat.
I'm now convinced that all this time it's been infected, and I have one of those rare tooth infections that only hurts a little. And that the pressure in my head, eyes, stuffy ears and recurring styes are really this tooth infection reaching my blood and brain and I'm going to die of it before reaching the dentist this Friday.
Can someone please assure me that there is nothing subtle about a real tooth infection, especially one that hits the brain??? There are people out there who were diagnosed with Cancer today. I feel ridiculous agonizing over a MINOR dull tooth aching.
