Maybe a bit off topic, but I thought I would share my pain......whilst in Portugal, I developed a toothache which got progressively more unbearable. We had some Amoxicillin but I wasn't sure if I could take them with the meds. Local pharmacist there scratched his head.....emailed some medics in the UK who you would think would know, and got nowhere!!! At 6 pm the day before flying home, the hotel receptionist managed to get me an appointment with his dentist in Portimao.....incredible service, state of the art X-rays, drilled out the fillings and removed the nerves.......all for €120. He said he couldn't fill it because of possible pressure problems in the plane.....but bliss, no pain!!! I had an appointment for my dentist last Monday, but did have to have it temporarily filled there last Friday as my tongue was suffering from the sharp edges. Problem is, it hurts again, back on Amoxicillin (which is OK with anti-coags apparently) full strength paracetamol/codeine painkillers and guess what....I've got to wait another 3 weeks before the dentist can whip it out.....anyone got a piece of string and a door they can lend me.......but the good news is, still in NSR and it will be the first anniversary of my ablation the day they take the tooth out!!!
