  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • I honestly thought I was this was worse than child birth. Not pain wise, but the feeling that I was going to suffocate. For a little while there, my teeth were chattering so hard, that it sounded like a helicopter to me. Thats crazy, but it just would not stop. My jaw felt like it was so tired, and it locked up. I could not talk or move my mouth hardly because the constant chattering and inability to move my mouth. Trying to breathe while this was going on made it more difficult. I felt like I was starting to hyperventilate since I was trying to take big gulps of air while struggling to breath through my teeth. Finally after about an two hours or so of this, it completely stopped within a second. My body was so tired of the jolting and I developed a severe headache. I threw up about an hour later. It was clear liquid. Probably the tea I had tried to drink when I was shaking with the chills. I didn't throw up my dinner however. I was very suprised about that. When I woke up the next morning around ten, I had black spots in my vision that took a while to disappear. My left eye was very blurry every morning for about a week. I had one injection at the doctors office and was prescribed 800 mg IB profen and Amoxicillian which I've never had a reaction to. The tordol injection was given to me that afternoon at around 5pm along with my perscriptions.

    A tooth (plural teeth) is a small, calcified, whitish structure initiate in the jaws (or mouths) of many vertebrates and worn to defeat down food. Some animals, particularly carnivores, also partake of teeth for the purpose hunting or in place of defensive purposes. The roots of teeth are covered nearby gums. Teeth are not made of bone, but degree of multiple tissues of varying density and hardness.

    The community structure of teeth is nearly the same across the vertebrates, although there is respectable converting in their form and position. The teeth of mammals have deep roots, and this figure is also rest in some fish, and in crocodilians. In most teleost fish, regardless how, the teeth are attached to the outer outwardly of the bone, while in lizards they are fond of to the inner surface of the jaw by way of a man side. In cartilaginous fish, such as sharks, the teeth are attached by tough ligaments to the hoops of cartilage that accumulate the jaw.
