With the change of weather come sinus infections. If you have ever had a sinus infection, you know they are not fun. You get bad headaches, a nasty cough, runny nose and do not forget TOOTHACHES. Well I have not been feeling well for about a month or so. I went to the Doctor a few weeks ago, diagnosis sinus infection. The doctor gives me a prescription for antibiotics, I go and get it filled take all 30 pills. Well not, all at once it was three a day for 10 days.
After the pills are gone, my teeth start hurting so bad. I am taking 800mg of Ibuprofen, applying oral gel on the area and having no luck. The pain is so severe all I want to do is sleep the pain away, so I have been sleeping more then I should. Well last night my husband decided to look up “Clove for toothache”.
After he finished his search, we were off to Wal-Mart at 3am. Yes, I was in that much pain and I wanted it to go away. Therefore, I go into Wal-Mart and I get my Clove, after I get in the car I take and put a piece of whole clove in my mouth and chew it up. Well let us just say chewing on whole clove is like chewing on a piece of a tree branch. YUCK so I had to get the nasty stuff out of my mouth. After we get home I try to keep it in my mouth, but it just is not working. So I take and pull the round ball like part off and I put that in my mouth chew it up some and leave it between my cheek and the tooth that is killing me. I end up falling asleep.
I wake up this morning and guess what no more tooth pain woohoo. Clove really worked. I still have the cough and the runny nose, but I can deal with that. I am just very glad the clove has ton the trick. I am not saying clove will work for everyone. I am not saying you should use clove instead of going to see the dentist I am saying clove worked for ME. Would I recommend it to someone having tooth pain yes I would.
