    OMG I'm having such trouble with my wisdom tooth!!!
    Every 6 months or so it grows a little and for a few days it hurts like hell!!! What's your oppinion on painkillers? Read somewhere it's unadvicable to take them on an empty stomache, is that right? I try to avoid taking them at all but today my jaw is agony. Any advice? xx

    I have stomach problems and painkillers upset me at the best of times. However, paracetamol are pretty gentle on the tummy and if you take them with a shake you should be ok.

    My sympathies, I hate the pain of toothache and I cry like a baby with it!

    I had a bad experience with taking nurofen, had a desperate pain in tummy.(you may have seen my post) i cudnt eat/drink anything at all and had them on a empty stomack i got sick everywhere. Try panadol or something not so strong first and have it with a shake :)

    avoid anything that is ibuprofen based as it can irritate the stomach lining. Go for a chalky parcetamol with a shake. Hope you feel better soon hun xx

    get some co-codamol which is paracetamol and codeine and have that with a shake. Alternatively you should be ok taking brufen with a bar and plenty to drink. Tooth ache is the pitts.

    If you have just eaten your bar you should be ok to take something now :) if you have an empty stomach paracetamol is best, not sure if it will be enough I hate tooth ache :( (((hugs)))

    I took a Propain yesterday for a bad headache and it made me feel terrible. I had to go and lie down in the medical room and ended up going home. Hope you feel better soon. I used to dab brandy on my wisdom teeth when they were growing. I had them all out in hospital in the end because they caused me problems all the time. Take care

    Clove oil is supposed to be quite good too! You can get that from a decent chemist. You just dab it on your tooth.
