Worst pain, ignorant dental practices....don't know how much more I can tolerate ! Help!!
| Mama Z
I have never been in so much continuous pain! Ready to go to the emergency room, but have 3 kids sleeping and my husband has to go to work soon. I don't know what to do. Can't eat, or drink, had tooth extracted on Tuesday, today is Sunday. .had treatment for dry socket on Friday and is been worse and worse. Pain meds only dull pain for about 2 hours if that. Should i go to er, can they range a look and repack this hole in my gums? I have had the c worst experience with Dentists. When they packed it on Friday they just went in and flushed it without any shots or numbing, hurt soooo bad i cried in the chair. Then he gave me 800 ibuprofen even though i tools him it didn't help with pain all week, then he forgot to mention that i should come back for ca couple more treatments, I found out tonight when i called dentist and they called me back reeling me i should come back right away on monday. This is HORRIBLE. .I can't even rest

Eat something. Ibuprofen irritates my tummy when it's empty! Tiger balm helps my tummy also. I rub it under my nose - the smell is very relaxing to me. And I rub it on my stomach.

I am taking potassium, allopurinol, triamterene/hctz, simvastatin, ibuprofen and
amitriptyline. Does a probiotic pill interact with any of these prescription drugs?

Depo bad experience
| kiyannahollway
So this my first time on depo. I don't think my body can handle it. First the first two weeks were fine. I had sex with my bf. The condom broke and he replaced it. 3 days later i was spotting that turned into light bleeding then spotting. Every time i pee the blood would pour out. I been on my period for 3 weeks. I been wearing pads just as long. And when i got depo it was while i was on my period. So i started to get sweaty down there and irration down there more near my butt. I did get a bump that felt like it was right off a vain near my butt hole. It only hurted when i pressed hard on it. It went away. My head was hurting on and off the right side were my ovaries are at. I been itchy on the side of my rib cages and it was a bit achy under both sides of my rib cages. And my butt been breaking out and getting itchy. And on and off again hurt when i peed. So i told my doctor about a lot of this. She was like its normal for the bleeding. And i got checked for sti. They were negative. I had a uti and then i developed a bv. And now i got a yeast infection. A nurse told me i can take ibuprofen 600 mg every 6 or 8 hours for 3 days it slowed it up. Then i started to bleed and some clumps came out of me. I think that was my real period. I been an emotional react depressed crying angry. I don't what to do or feel . I been freaking out since then. I also had this pain on my left butt cheek near the anus hole. And a pain inside my belly button and in my stomach hurts a bit on and off. I be feeling weak and not wanting to do anything but cry. I got two more months and im done with this.
Has anyone else had bad issue with depo? Can this all be from depo? And whats going on with my butt my doctor even looked down there and saw no bumps signs of irration, all she saw was near my tail bone about a inch down a tear in my skin and she sent it in for testing but she said it looks like a normal tare?

Ibuprofen definitely causes floaters in my eyes and in my mother's also, so we do not take it. The floaters resolve over time off Ibuprofen.

Noooo... it's not bitter. Acidic substances often taste sour, or directly burn. Ibuprofen burns your tongue, it feels like a very strange and strong mix of pepper and chilli. I know because I had to take one once and there was no water around (and it wasn't coated). Guess what happened when it started dissolving with my own water... it burnt first, then I ended up with my whole mouth and throat completely anesthetized for half an hour. And that was basically it.

Probably there shouldn't be coating in any of these things. It would stop them from being accidentally eaten by children, it would stop people from taking them unless they TRULY needed them, etc.

My daughter has digeorge syndrome she is 12yrs old going through puberty. She recently began having seizures. At first I thought maybe it was caused by the bactrim. But I took her off that. Now I think it might be ibuprofen. I won't give her antiseizure meds until I rule out any other possible causes. She had three in one day (the first time) and now one month later she has had another. The first time I gave her ibuprofen the night before due to headache. Then the next day not realizing she'd had a seizure the night before I gave her more for headache about 8hrs later a seizure. Then last night headache ibuprofen lije clock work 9 hrs later seizure. Could they be connected? Am I wrong for not giving antiseizure meds yet? How do I get stupid ER DR to quit treating me like I'm a peace of $&!* and just listen to my concerns? They wouldn't even do blood work on her and i am just fed up
