    Let me tell everyone about my day. It might make someone else feel better. On Friday I hurt my upper right tooth in the very back of my mouth. I somehow cracked or chipped it. The pain was very intense but I suffered with it until Sunday. On Sunday the pain was so bad I was in the floor rolling around in pain because it was constant and relentless. I had tried every toothache remedy possible and nothing helped anymore. So eventually I was taken to the ER. Once there the ER gave me a prescription for Penicillin and Loratabs for pain. They gave me nothing while I was there so as soon as we left the hospital I had my prescription filled. I took a Loratab immediately and waited to feel the relief. The relief came but so did something else. I had forgotten that I have a very sensitive stomach. I've taken Loratab before and if I don't eat first it makes me throw up. I took the medicine and my tooth felt better but then I was nauseas. I didn't think I would throw up so I laid down but I did anyway. In fact, I threw up about 6 times before actually going to bed on Sunday. Right now I am awake and its 2 am in the morning. I'm trying to force myself to eat some yogurt because I have to take another Loratab soon. Its taken me about 20 minutes to eat 4 oz's of yogurt. I don't have an appetite after throwing up that much.
