A very common problem but a mean one! I am suffering from a bad bad bad toothache. Had my tooth extracted yesterday after not sleeping for 5 days & yesterday I couldn't sleep too! The dentist had to create another clog for my tooth.. oh whatever it is! It's excruciating & tiring. I've tried all those remedies & they only work for like a few seconds. please i need my sleep. i'm cranky when I don't get enough sleep. will take extra dosage of ibuprofen today as I want to sleep for at least 4 hour hours straight!
