or should i say dentitst shuffle. blahhh,Hi all update on my anxiety and teeth.
I worked my courage up and got an appointment to see my dentist about front tooth pain.He referred me to get a root canal. I told him I already saw 2 endodontists that said the root canal cannot be done that the root has calcified. I dont think he heard me? idk im really not getting it. He still referred me out to get a root canal. I proceeded to get really upset and panicked and teary the next day called again and said please I just want this tooth out, please refer me to an oral surgeon..so they do, I pick up the referral and it says "patient" is requesting an extraction..and dentist is asking for a consult..I made an appointment and the soonest they have is 5 weeks.ugh.
My anxiety is so bad. My fear is they will not take the tooth out .That they will again refer me back for a root canal..I;m just being shuffled and not getting any help..My insurance is garbage..Really im feeling hopeless.. I think the anxiety is the fear of pain increasing and no one helping me Is that even a possibility?? that noone will help me and I will be in severe pain forever??
on a good note?? my medical dr is sending me to an allergist/immunologist to find out why I had the hives and lip swelling. She wants clearance for me also to get the covid vaccine.So that is good
I dont know how to keep the panic under control anymore.I spent many years in therapy and havent been in awhile. But am considering returning. Idk what they can do ?? teach me how to stay calm while my pain increases??
am i missing something here
