I went to the dentist, and the verdict is . . . . .

A root canal, another crown, an infection, and possibly another root canal. :o( He prescribed vicodin and double doses of penicillin (which I haven't had in about 20 years) to stomp out the infection fast.

Unfortunately, I've got a sneaky suspicion that I am now allergic to penicillin like two of my siblings. My tongue is tingling, my face is a little swollen, and so is my left hand. I've put a call in, but until I hear from the doc I'm not taking any more.

It's a real bummer because penicillin is a lot cheaper than most antibiotics. And I was looking forward to a painkiller stronger than advil or tylenol, without having to take my migraine pills. :o(

And my face/teeth still hurt.
