Yesterday morning, I woke up with both a headache and a severe tooth ache. I have sensitive teeth, and this happens to me when ever there is winter storm. My experience has been that nothing helps. You just have to ride it out.
Yesterday, the pain went away when I was walking, so I assumed that the exercise probably helped. But it returned as soon as I stopped. It has suddenly dawned on me how to end it. In fact, I ended it early this morning by doing one simple thing.
Wearing a mask.
When I exercise outside, I bring a mask but never wear it. When it gets cold, however, I have always worn a balaclava. I have quite a few. I have always liked the way they warm up my head, neck and the air as I breathe it.
When I walked yesterday, and I was out twice, I wore a balaclava. My toothache was gone. The pain returned when I got home.
This morning, I donned a mask inside my underground lair, even though I am near no one. In 15 minutes, the pain was gone.
I think the mask (or balaclava) might help those of us who suffer tooth aches during weather changes.
This is just my personal experience. Nothing more.
Have you had any positive experiences from wearing a mask? Feel free to share.
