So anxious and upset about my teeth

Hey guys,

Recently work has taken a bit of a stressful turn and on Friday I found myself having quite a few panic attacks - i thought iíd been doing pretty well lately but it just caught up with me. On Friday night I went to bed and woke up the next morning clenching my teeth together, with quite a pain in the tooth that bore the brunt of the clenching. Itís now Sunday evening and itís showing no signs of getting better, the tooth feels pretty numb and I canít eat on that side of my mouth because whenever i put pressure on it i get shoots of pain go up it.

I am so upset and fed up because Iím worried this is an abscess, I am gearing myself up to get an emergency dentist appointment in the morning to check it out but I havenít been to the dentist in years (sorry - another thing I get anxious about!) and Iím driving myself crazy.

I keep thinking ďit might go away on its own!Ē And ďwhat if i chicken out going to the dentist or it gets worse?Ē Iíve hardly eaten anything today and iím just at my wits end. I have clenched my teeth in my sleep in the past but iíve never done it this bad before.

Honestly, any virtual hugs or words of encouragement you guys can give would be greatly appreciated. I am driving myself nuts here!
