two thirty

I went to the University Dental Hospital today.
They don’t make you feel very welcome do they?

On my first visit they took an armful of blood and told me to come back in 4 months. On the second visit they took the other armful and told me to come back in 3 months.

Today it was a new person. She looked at the results and told me I had the bestest blood in Greater Manchester. She looked in my mouth and took X rays. She said I had the best teeth, gums, fillings and crowns in the Northern hemisphere.

She told me to congratulate my local dentist.

Instead of rejoicing - I repeated my symptoms which have plagued me for years. In other words I reminded her why I was there in the first place.

She went all ‘touchy feely’ on me. She talked about emotions and coping skills.

She diagnosed *Atypical Odontalgia*.

According to Google ‘Odontalgia’ means toothache and ‘Atypical’ means something like nutter.
And the treatment …. Amitriptyline … for me nerves.
This is the stuff that makes Eileen forget what day it is and sit watching channel 5 in the mornings. They are ‘anti - depressants’.
I argued and sulked but she was adamant.
I start in 2 weeks time.
Please feel free to mention it if you see zombie like signs from this url.

Tell her to fuck off and get another diagnosis from somebody else.

Then, if you absolutely must take it, mix it into your vodka.

We went there once years ago -- had to go out and move the car three times to avoid a parking ticket - most of the spaces I found were 15 minutes walk away!

I saw my dentist today too. Saw my regular one about a month ago for a broken tooth. I'd put up with it for a bitand made an appoint about two weeks in advance. Treatment took less than 5 minutes and cost £48. Anyway after a week or so I still had pain [diseased gums mainly] and so this morning I rang up about 9.30, said I was in much pain and they said come in at 11.15. Saw some dentist from Eastern Europe who japped and poked and did some more filling and five hours later I can finally feel my lips again. Because today's visit was classed as "emergency" it only cost me £15.90 which seems to me a bargain.

PS there was a sign up saying "three of our nurses are on maternity leave; we have three student nurses so please bear with us"

I would just like to formally second MJ's suggestion. Both of them.

A nutter with toothache?!!!

An excellent post, Kaz. Best post in the Northern Hemisphere.

I tried to - problem is I waited so long for the chance to see a specialist
Mixed with vodka?
Now that might release my well known inhibitions.

I only live down the road - luckily as (car + University area) = disaster.

'3 nurses on maternity leave' - sounds like that old film 'Dentist on the Job'.

Both of them? - Surely there's only ONE mj

I'm going to make a badge that says *Best Nutter in the Northern hemisphere*.

Old wom has been at the murph-pills.

Rather than valium, can't you get the painkillers dave has?

Blogger Dave said...

I'll swap you some of my painkillers for some of your valium. then I'll forget what I was moaning about.

Blogger KAZ said...

Good idea.
But where do I get 'E' now the Hacienda's been turned into a block of flats?

I feel responsible for introducing them.

The website said 'Nutter's toothache' doesn't respond to painkillers.
I'm wondering about St. John's wort.
Perhaps I'll go and ask him.

Trouble is - you'll forget everything else as well.

But you'll be a very happy bunny (or 'Rabbit').

Just a thought Kaz... dose this tooth problem get worse after you have flown? Maybe cabin pressure in the aeroplane could be a trigger to the pain.???

Blogger MJ said...

Look Kaz!

Now we both have bottles!

Interesting idea and I'll check next time I fly.

As my granny used to say 'Bottoms Up' ...Very Appropriate!

love the piccies on your side bar!

hey, I have some valium, various packets of ADs and a bottle of Vanilla Absolut - can I join in the Multi Coloured Swap Shop that this comment string is becoming? how much yould you like for those flowery DMs?


(I know it's probably obvious, but do you use Sensodine toothpaste?)

Blogger KAZ said...

Thanks - I feel better already

Now that I've discovered how to do it I can't stop.

Have you any crystal meth? The Sensodyne is fine but I don't get the same psychedelic effects.

I would have emailed you, Kaz. But I've lost your address.

Your problem could have parallels with my digestive problem. Without medication, I get awful reflux symptoms. They put me on pills to stop the acid but the pain and discomfort didn't go away. They put me on nortriptyline but that on its own didn't work and I have to take both nortriptyline and an anti-psychotic (fluphenazine) to stop the symptoms. Although I'm not producing much acid, my nerves react strongly to what little is produced. The anti-psychotics and the anti-depressants stop my nerves reacting in a haywire way.

The dosage I take is still a lot less than someone with depression or psychosis would take. I wouldn't think they'd give you large doses to control your toothache and you won't become a zombie. My anti-psychotics have more of a sleepybyes effect on me than the antidepressants and I got used to them quite quickly. The dosage I'm on now even allows me to drink coffee and tea, both of which really used to affect me badly.

Good luck with the pills. I bet they work and you won't have any problems.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
