Cotton-pickin', gosh dang it all. Was making some nice progress. Last week, my immune system failed and I caught a NASTY bug. Lost my voice, ran a fever, the whole nine. Near the end of last week, a tooth started hurting - one that has already had root canal treatment. I called the dentist, they got me right in and took a look. No swelling. Hmmmm.... maybe it's your sinus. You ARE sick, after all... Signed for some decongestant on the way home.
Woke up yesterday with a lump in my gum. Today it's bigger and hurts really bad. The good news - the virus bug has pretty much left the building. The endodontist worked me in - I leave for that in a few.
Keep a good thought that this is a seal that's lost or something that can be FIXED and not a manglement that's going to result in an extraction.
