Just got two of my wisdom teeth removed
« on: February 12, 2014, 03:02:03 PM »
I just got two of my wisdom teeth removed. Took every ounce of courage to go in there. Last time I tried they had to call an ambulance because I couldn't breathe and I was violently shaking all over. This time I was fine although very paranoid.

The procedure lasted thirty minutes. Ten minutes for the top tooth, and twenty for the bottom tooth. I am very sore and there is a lot of bleeding. I was freaking out about blood loss all last night and it caused a massive argument with my fiancée who just thinks this hypochondria is selfishness.

Today, I noticed splotches on my abdomen, red splotches, and I convinced myself I had another disorder (which I wont say, because I don't want other people googling it). I took my temperature and it was 97.6, which is in the normal range. I took it twice, with the same result each time.

My question is: I seem to be able to act normally when I don't have to do a medical procedure, however I am at a complete loss as far as what to do if I need to get a real procedure done. I seem to have uncontrollable panic and no CBT exercise seems to help it.

Even though I don't have a fever I find myself still freaking out about the possibility of this unnamed infection (which I refuse to name), even though in the back of my mind I know that if I had an infection I would more than definitely have a fever, at least a slight one.

If anyone has any techniques as far as summoning up the balls to go through with things, and then relax afterwards, that would be great.
