Slice of Chaotic Life

The daily life of a celibate middle-aged man.

Inflammation phase 2

Posted by Itlandm on February 20, 2015

Today the pain in the gums is much reduced, while there is a more widespread stump pain spread around the upper jaw (and to a much smaller degree the lower jaw) as well as some sense of pressure and occasional slight pain more widely in the left side of the face. The lymph node on the left side of the neck is also a bit tender. During the evening my heart rate was 15-20 bpm above baseline, and I had a slight temperature. (Not enough to qualify as fever.) I did however have some chest cough at the time, so that could be the source of the systemic symptoms.

I am told that people can die from a broken heart, but my impression is that death from a broken tooth is very rare. If it doesn’t get worse than this, I can continue my work in this world.
