Training was going well until about a week ago when I started to get some pain from a tooth on my left side. Went to dentist and they confirmed something is amiss and referred me back to the endodontist again. (second root canal in 6 months). The last one wasn’t so bad but I also wasn’t in a training block. I was able to knock out last Tuesdays work out but had to sit out Thrusdays as I was overtired from not getting much sleep the night before as the pain decided to ramp up in the evening and I was forced to take some ibuprofen. I typically have a high tolerance for pain like this so you know it’s bad, and my wife will attest as I hate to take drugs. Had to sit out the weekends workouts as well, not that the pain while resting was bad but the tooth has been very sensitive (understatement of the year - it was bad at certain times and I didn’t want to take a chance) to fluids in general and I like to drink a lot on the bike, plus I was still taking the IB so probably not a good mix. My endodontist appt is tomorrow so I should be back ready to go on Wednesday for my ramp test! I’m going to try and get on the bike tonight as most all pain as subsisted and the tooth is no longer sensitive as long as I don’t chew on that side, which I think I can manage while working out.
Anyway, not looking for any advice, just some commiseration.
