  1. I had a tooth pulled on Thursday. The pain is pretty much gone but I have become paranoid about dry socket. I read it’s very common, and even a Dr I was talking to about something when I mentioned the tooth he warned me to follow the dentists rules because he himself had the dry socket happen. I was told no straw usage for 48hours. That was yesterday but I’m so scared that I don’t even want to look at a straw right now. Anyone have any advice or experience with teeth extractions?

    Cold zap in face and mouth?

    Ok, so I just talked to a Dr and he said it’s normal after dental work and it’s mostlikely being worsen by the anxiety. Phew!

    Cold zap in face and mouth?

    @Kindra thank you for your response. It just started last night. It’s really only bothering me left side of my face inside and out. The left side is where I had my tooth pulled on Thursday so maybe that plus the anxiety plus the stress of getting ready for company in the morning is just doing my head in.

    Cold zap in face and mouth?

    So since last night I’ve been getting these weird feeling in my face and mouth. It’s like a zapping sensation which I know the anxiety can cause but it’s like a cold feeling. Not hot or tingling. Only lasts like maybe 2-3 seconds and they have been randomly coming. Even had one up by my ear. Does this sound like the “head zap” that anxiety can cause? Anyone else have this cold zap?

    What else is next?!

    Thank you @Jae and @anixetyaccount123 for your responses. It’s day 2 and I’m feeling ok. All this medicine and not really being able to eat much wasmaking my stomach feel crappy. Tonight I was able to have a proper meal. The biggest annoyance was they shorted me 5 pills of the antibiotics so I had to call and get it fixed then I get there and they only had 2 ready for me. But I got the remaining 3. The pain mends 800mg ibuprofen makes me sleepy. Luckily the canker sores are going away now and the cold sore isn’t as bad thanks to getting prescription pills for that. We have company coming in Sunday so I’m hoping nothing else goes wrong.

    What a freaking horrible week! First a canker, then the freak out over a pimple, then a broken tooth, and now I woke up with the beginnings of a cold sore! All this right before company comes.

    Guilty

    Thank you @SavPierce @BrightPhoenix @Vandelsrock21 And @Bobnnat all for your responses. It really did help. Throughout my struggles with this stuff guilt has been a huge deal. Feeling guilty I’m like this while other people are actually struggling. Deep down I know 90% of this is the anxiety and the other 10 is just getting older and the crap that comes with that.

    Guilty

    I love this site. It has really helped me through some hard times. But I can’t help but feel guilty when I do. I feel guilty because I look at what other posters are going through and here I am freaking out over what’s most likely just a pimple. Or other trivial things that I’m sure most of the people on here deal with the same and never give a second thought. I feel guilty because I feel like I’m complaining over nothing but for me and my messed up brain they are a big deal.

    Disappointed in myself.

    Another “something” that’s a nothing another anxiety attack. This time over what appears to just be an ugly pimple. Last night was rough. Today I am just exhausted. Talked to a Dr. and again not worried about it.

    @SavPierce @mollyfin @Holls Thank you all for your responses. Yesterday was slightly better. And today has been good. Got a second opinion on the issue and again this Dr said it’s nothing infact he had the same issue around my age. The hardest part is just shutting down that “what if” nonsense.

    After the 2 months of torture I went though I started November off good. Everything was going just fine. Little bits of anxiety but nothing serious and I dealt with it. Then a few days ago I asked a Dr about something that’s been an reoccurring “issue” to which he said it’s nothing. I felt like a weight had been lifted. Then last night happened and I had an anxiety attack over the issue. Today has been just a blah day. I feel so disappointed in my self.

    I survived 2 months of hell

    @mollyfin thank you for your response. It’s been a struggle. I find myself wanting to sleep more and more the last few days. I think I’m “detoxing” from all that anxiety and also if I’m sleeping I can’t feel the anxiety. One day at a time.

    I survived 2 months of hell

    So the past 2 months have been torture for me. We moved to a new house, and that stress triggered the bad bad bad episode. Had a bad canker sore that lasted for a week, then the next 2 weeks were stressing over a bruise. Both of which Dr. had seen and weren’t worried about. Then I bit the inside of my cheek again which was painful Oh and let’s forget the ingrown toenail minor infection, and a maybe have anemia scare and that was just September First week of October was ok, but I was still obsessing about anything. Then I badly burn the inside of my mouth. It healed just fine. Again showed it to a Dr and they weren’t concerned. Then a week later got a cold sore, went and talked to a few Dr’s no one was too worried. Oh and then I got another canker sore at the same time AND scratched up the inside of my cheek with some stupid garlic bread! All three things broke me and sent me to urgent care last weekend because I just needed relief. As my last post about this said the Dr was amazing and he said it’s all just because of the anxiety. Wasn’t concerned about anything underlying going on other than the anxiety and that he deals with mouth ulcers too. Talked to another Dr I’ve dealt with regarding this stuff and he said the same thing that he’s not worried about underlying anything. Well the cold sore is gone now, and the canker sore and scratched area are half way gone. No more pain from either thank goodness It’s a new month and I made a promise to try and get rid of the anxiety or at the very least keep in check. So far so good. Had a few “what if” moments but when ever I start to feel that anxiety I’ve done some breathing and it’s been good. 4 days in and things are ok. I’m also making sure I’m eating more because that’s always a huge trigger for me. This time of year is usually stressful for most people but for me it’s the opposite I’m usually at my best. So hears hoping that this bump in the road is over. I’m just trying to go one day at a time.

    Urgent care visit today

    @Mike L Thanks for the response, and I know I know. I think a lot of the doubt came from just the whole high anxiety of it and now that things have calmed down it’s sinking in. It’s just that damn “but... what if...?”
