I got a prescription from Dr. Merchant (my dentist) on Saturday for the sore throat. She prescribed me penicillin.
It worked! My teeth are still a little sore at times but the sore throat went away.
I'm getting the teeth out Monday at 10 a.m. I'm really nervous. I am hopeful once I get through the actual removal and recovery that I'll feel better. I have a feeling that the teeth have been cause me trouble for a while in other ways besides my mouth. I'll only know once they're out.
