So, as everyone knows that I have been in constant pain since the 21st of July. Nothing has really helped, I have been taking 2 Tylenol and 2 Advil every four hours and that only brings the pain level down but doesn't eliminate it. And I have basically been drinking Benzacaine (Ambysol) to help take the sting off as well, and as I have mentioned in previous post, it has been frustrating. I have been desperate enough to even consider buying some whiskey to dab on the tooth as a numbing agent! Well, as God's providence would have it the liquor stores were closed, and the pharmacy didn't have any clove oil that also works as a numbing agent. Discouraged, we came home and started to do random things. When Curtis came across some old mint extract in the cupboard and noticed that it read 90% alcohol as an active ingredient. He told me that I should try it just to see. So, I did, and it took that pain instantly and completely away!! Who would have thought?? Mint extract of all things!! It doesn't last too long, but it still takes the pain away!! Hallelujah!!!
