Hello,
Thanks for writing to us.

I would like you to know that long-standing pain is following an infection, which has now become chronic.
As you mentioned here about a root canal treatment, it is quite clear that as the treatment could not be completed, therefore infection persisted.
I will advise you to see a dentist as the tooth causing pain needs to be diagnosed and accordingly treatment will be provided.

In your case, dentist will first take an X-ray of your tooth and then advise you the treatment.
Kindly avoid taking painkillers for a long time as they have side effects.
Perform warm saline rinses (3-4 times/day), it will relieve pain temporarily.

I hope this answer was useful.
Kindly write back if you have further queries.
I wish you good health.

my resting heart rate is normaly around 60 to 70.....but for the last couple of months it has been falling into the lower 50's. i suffer from anxiety which i just started taking xanax for.( 1mg daily). i was concerned for my heart rate so i talked to my doctor. he told me it was just my anxiety and not to worry about it. a week later after being very tired for a few days straight and waking with my heart rate at 47 i went to the er. they ran every test that they could.... thyroid, supplement deficiency, ekg, checked my heart enzymes, x-ray, and a couple of others. all came back normal. all they could say is that i had sinus bradycardia. my question is even though my doc says i am fine and all the test come back normal, should i see a cardiologist just to make sure there is not a underline problem with my heart? i just think it is funny how all of a sudden my resting heart rate has dropped so much. thank you!!!

Hello,My Name is Miguel, Im 18 years old and i am from Portugal.This monday I had an Math exam, I was a little nervous and i started cutting my nails with my mouth from the hand and accidently a nail got stuck in my throat. I went to the hospital next day and the doctor examined me and while he was examining he said that he touched the nail but when he does this its when i imideatly cough. He said that the nail was gone but i kept feeling the sensation that I still had something in my throat. Next day i went to the hospital again and the doctor made me a colonoscopy and he said he didnt detected nothing. I asked them for x-ray and once more they didnt saw nothing. But the question is that after 5 days i kept feeling the same sensation that i have something in my throat and im getting really really frustated and worried with this! Is there something that could make me better? :(Please, help me!
