It's my own damn fault. The airline has a good dental plan and I should have gone 2 1/2 years ago when I first got the job. Might have got away with just a filling.
But here's the thing. For the better part of a year now, I have been feeling like crap. Tired, achy not feeling like doing anything. But I did notice that if I took some Advil Cold & Sinus or just plain ibuprofen, then I would feel markedly better. I begin to think I've got a lingering infection/inflammation going on somewhere, but where?
Then the tooth ache shows up.
Went to the dentist after work yesterday and he started the root canal where they put medicine down in the tooth to dry up the infection. This morning and today I have felt really good, as in better than in a long time. (No pain meds besides 600 mg ibuprofen last night)
So if you are feeling like dirt, go get your teeth checked. It can't hurt. Oh wait, it can hurt like
And there is medical evidence the inflammation in your mouth is the same kind that causes heart disease...
