Today it's back to the dentist due to problems. My jaw has been locking up and hurting something awful, all the way down into my neck. Sunday morning I couldn't even open my mouth for a while. I'm pretty sure it's related to stress and I'm now clenching my teeth in my sleep because of it. Regardless of the cause – there needs to be a solution figured out for it. I can't keep waking up in the middle of the night in pain or going around with this tension in my jaw. I took some prescription strength Aleve for it but I can't do that every day. I'm also going to take a few minutes to speak with her about the wisdom tooth surgery and hopefully get some of my fears calmed.

Hi Lola, glad to find you here! It must be really painful, hope the dentist will find out the solution very soon, and relieve your pain. When is the wisdom tooth surgery scheduled? I hope it will be fine too. My second and third wisdom tooth surgeries was smooth and not as painful as I thought too.

I don't have a surgery date scheduled yet. I'm hoping later today to get a consultation appointment with the surgeon set up. I may go ahead and fill out the online paperwork for the surgeon so they have that when I go in.

Yes, you can't go on this way.
