    Here's another update! It didn't completely settle, and developed into intense periods of pain. On Christmas Eve, one week after the original filling, I had the tooth removed. It was not infected, but the nerve was dying due to the large filling..

    Thankyou Duffsmom! Her office is closed tomorrow so it has a day to settle down then I will have to call on thursday...I don't want toothache over Christmas. I think the dread of it is worse than the actual visit most times!
