Well, the area from which the cursed tooth was extracted is finally starting to actually heal from the trauma so that is a big plus. It was actually pretty painful through last night. Unfortunately, and this is something of which I was totally unaware, dental trauma can exacerbate Rheumatoid Arthritis and cause flares…and this infection and extraction did just that. I didn’t realize what was happening at first but as it continued to get worse and worse, I started doing some research and found a lot of information about it. Probably the only thing that would stop this in its tracks is prednisone and since I’m a diabetic that’s not going to happen so I just have to hope that the Plaquenil will do its job after the tooth trauma has completely died down. I am having a hard time typing, walking, standing, and I’m also suffering from fatigue. I’m miserable. But I feel a bit better than I did yesterday so maybe I’m on the mend. Whether I am or not, I still have to be at work since it’s the end of the month. Well, my finger joints are starting to complain so I’m going to close for now. Hopefully, I’ll feel a bit better tomorrow.

I hope each day brings you more relief and less pain. I never knew dental pain could send more RA pain. I too deal with those flares.
