User :   I have no insurance and two months ago I had an upper molar abcess that had to have a drain put in and I was told I was very lucky! Now for two days I have one growing on the bottom and tonight it is a golf all size. I am dizzy, vomiting, dirrareha (sp) and y mouth and jaw bone hurts. When I go to th ER they refer me to a dentist that I cannot afford and they will not see me. Every tooth is black an rotton to the gums. Do I go back to the ER or am I going to die with these teeth? Hydrocodone is no longer working.
