I got a wisdom tooth pulled today. It took two hours and a whole lot of medicine to numb my mouth. I was crying and shaking half of the time, but mostly regretting the fact that I didn’t wear waterproof mascara.
My doctor numbed me up and started doing stuff inside my mouth. He told me I should feel pressure, but after a few minutes I’d shake so badly he would add more novacaine. After that happened 3 times, he asked me if I knew the difference between pressure and pain. So I asked him for the definition. Pain goes straight to the head. Well in that case, I was feeling pain that went straight to the head and down my jaw into my chest.
