I've been getting a consistent but bearable headache since the past 2 weeks. i thought it would go away. Until last Sunday - it turned into severe headache; plus pain along my jawline and face. Couldn't find any pain killer (x ingat letak kat mana). Last resort - hubby took me to emergency room (coz all clinics nearby our house were closed). My BP was high. Doctor administered pain killer via injection. And ordered me to rest. After 1 hrs under oxygen mask, alhamdulillah...the pain was gone and I can smile again (hahahha...sebab i cried like baby masa sakit tu...) And since my BP had lower back to normal range, doctor released me and we went home.
What a drama... I suspected my headache was due to my wisdom tooth growing (coz pain along my jawline). And I was also wondering, perhaps my wisdom tooth would finally show itself? Mana tak wonder...dah 33 tahun umur, x nampak pun tanda2 gigi geraham bongsu ni nak crowning.
Yesterday, I went to dentist. Got an x-ray... and behold.... My wisdom tooth had actually grown but were 'impacted' i.e failed to fully emerge into its expected position. My right wisdom teeth is what doctor call 'sleeping' teeth. This is because it grows horizontally and didn't penetrate the gum (in the jawbone). My left wisdom teeth also yet to penetrate the gum but it is tipped towards my mouth i.e tumbuh senget la... hehehehe (click this link to see how it look like). According to the doc the pain would come and go as long as the tooth are growing. and it could take 1, 2 months or even 2 years before it fully grown. If I can bear the pain, no need to opt for operation and remove it. Otherwise, it can be removed surgically.
So far... nope... tanak operate dulu kot... let see what happend... Tapi bila baca kat internet - better remove now before it become painfull later. Coz when it became painful, the surgery would be more complex.
I don't know....
How about you? Gigi bongsu dah tumbuh ke? Ok ke sakit?
