Hi all,
I do have an appointment already..but i notice i have gone thru my quota of ibuprofane..and still have 8h to go. Baking soda in water with lime gave some relief.. Now it is starting to throb again -_-
Whatever help you can give to give this rest..or me some good sound sleep..is very welcome!
Thanx!!
Love, seeds

sorry to be late with this but in future the best and most long lasting pain relief is by alternating between paracetamol and ibuprofen. You take the recommended dosage of each every two hours, this allows you to remain with the dosage limit of each but provides you with continuous pain relief. I also found TCP helps as it contains an anesthetic. This was the only way I managed to get through my wisdom teeth flair ups.

good luck
