5. Be very, very careful with that--if you notice ANY swelling at all, go to the ER if you have to.
Swelling indicates an absessed tooth, which (aside from being hideously painful), can spread if untreated and become life-threatening very quickly.

I had a frighteningly close call with one of those a few years ago, and learned they're nothing to take lightly.

I hope you get some relief. :hug:
