okay, if you read friday night i was having major tooth pain. (im pretty sure its absecced, the tooth itself is discolored, and has a whole in it) VERY PAINFUL... i was gonna wait till monday to call the doctot/dentist... Sunday afternoon it hurt so bad, i was sick to my stomach i called the ER and the OB Doctor there called me in penicellin and tylonel 3 , and told me to call the dentisit and my doctor on monday.....
So Monday I called the dentist and told them about it and there gonna see me at 11 tomorrow, i have a doctors apt. at 8:30 and they just told me to get a note from the doctor saying i could get it taken out.
The problem is , i have a huge phobia of Dentist, and really only dentist. Some people think im crazy but for some reason as soon as i step into a dentist office , its almost unexplanable, i start to panic majorly (once this dentist "tried" to get me to lay back , my heart start to race and i bite her) (then another one "tried" to numb the tooth, I had my eyes closed ,trying to stay calm, i started to panic and jerked around and the needle got stuck through my lip) ...... so I normally am given happy pills, i really cant take them since im pregnant.
Its a differnt dentist office then i noramlly since, i tried to explain to the lady that i have a real problem. Any ideas on what i could do to help? Anyone else been in the same boat? My husbands going with me tomorrow , but im still really nervous and worried.
Any advice would be nice, please no bashing though, its a real fear of mine.

Wishing you So Much Luck- i understand, believe me!

If the Lady Laughs at you when you get there; tell her this is a Real Issue with you & if they can't deal with you then you need them to give you a Referral for a dentist for High Fear Patients-ASAP! Her attitude will change quick:)
