I Be Sick

My teeth have been bothering me the last few days. I sometimes grind them in my sleep. Most often if I’m having an especially stressful dream, which has been pretty much the only kind of dreams I’ve been having lately. No specific reason why that I can determine. The ache was concerning me though because it seemed like it was taking longer and longer to subside after I woke up.

This morning I woke with that same ache and my eyes were also very achy. Neither are good signs, but they weren’t pronounced enough that I thought to take any meds to stave off a migraine until I started feeling nauseated about an hour later. It’s been well over a month since my last migraine so it seems that unfortunately I got complacent as I haven’t refilled most of my meds and of course what I have on hand isn’t cutting it.

However, since the only time my teeth ever ache when I have a headache is when I’m coming down with a sinus infection I’m thinking that is unrelated. I’ve been meaning to make a dentist appointment for a long time — I actually can’t remember the last time I went to the dentist been well over a year — so I made an appointment today. Coincidentally it’s on the same day as the earliest appointment I could get in at my doctor’s to refill my prescriptions. I can’t decide if I’m more aggravated I can’t get in to see my doctor sooner or horrified at the torture that next Tuesday is bound to bring with both of these appointments.

Mostly, I just feel like crap.

Speak your piece!
