Really struggling right now. Last two days have been full of flashbacks, anxiety, fear and nightmares.
I'm really upset right now because 3 days ago a tooth that had a root canal treatment done a month ago, started hurting again. It initially settle down after treatment, but now the pain is back and it's causing me to panic. It also has these periods where it will feel loose and then fine again and go back and forth. Recently it's felt loose and that really scares me.
I called my dentist, Dr. C., this morning and he is going to see me today at 4 pm. I'm still in the process of building trust with him, so I still get in this panicky, anxiety and fearful kind of mood before appointments. Especially when it's something unexpected like this.
I'm really worried that he won't be able to treat it himself and that I'll need a referral to a specialist. I'm not ready to meet and try to trust another doctor right now.
I'm afraid I'm going to need some complicated treatment to fix this tooth.
