didn't they give you an Rx for pain killers.   If not do you have any Oragel on hand?  Get a numbing agent for your gums.
Take some Ibuprofin wash it down with straight wisky.   Damn girl, I feel for you.

No painkillers. Seems like it should be feeling better by now. :(

Did you have Alveoloplasty on both your upper and lower gum ridge?
Did your Dentist give you an Rx for pain?
Are you using Ice and Rinsing with Salt Water?
Benzodent works well for some and also like it better than Orajel.
Some Dentists like alternating Tylenol and Advil - See link.

I don't.  I prefer the "Good Stuff" like Percocet or Vicodin.

because of the abuse of painkillers drs. and dentists are afraid to prescribe them. It's a shame because people who really need them can't get them...They did on story on the news that sometimes a pharmacy will not fill a script for painkillers even if they are a cancer patient....
