I bit the inside of my cheek last weekend. Hard. Very hard. The indent of my teeth is still there. B/c of my uber sore throat, the inside of my mouth is all swollen, so I've had to insert padding against my cheek so I don't keep bitting it, since it's swollen, too.



Moron.

Ouch. That sucks. My brother did that after being numbed for dental work. He actually ate a meal before he was fully recovered. He said it was like hamburger meat in there. Ew. Did you rinse with salt water? That might help.

Yeah, it really hurts my throat, but helps the bit.



My mouth has not been the same since I had a wisdom tooth removed (and the bone infection afterwards). They shifted my jaw just a tiny bit, so I always seem to bite one side of my mouth when I sleep.

That sucks a lot, kristadb. (I do that sometimes, too, only not quite as hard I suppose - so I know a little about what you're going through )



If it's any consolation, I might be an even greater moron than you: Today I was out rollerblading, and I was going back inside. Only, first I had to climb down the stairs from the street level to the back yard. (The back yard is at a slightly lower level.) For some reason I decided to do the famous Drunken Master approach... And I was not wearing a helmet... Ouch, that hurt! Probably looked just like one of those jackass morons.

I no longer post here after VB was sold in 2012. (See my profile page for details.)

My son gave himself a shiner with his knee! Actually it wasn't his fault though, my husband was dropping him on the bed (which they do all the time as part of wrasslin) and he um, jackknifed. Bony knee hit bony eye socket. Instant shiner.

When I grew in my wisdom teeth, first I grew in the uppers, then I grew in the lowers some time later. When the lowers grew in, I wasn't used to have a full set of teeth back there, and kept biting my cheek over and over again, and it would get more swollen from the bites, so i'd bite it more, so it would get more swollen. It was self perpetuating and absolutely horrible!! It didn't get better, actually, until I DID get a tonsil infection and couldn't handle solid food for about a week, so I wasn't chewing anything.

Moufs are so sensitive!

For me, the cure was liquid diet. Broth, tea, yogurt, ice cream, ice pops, things that are easy going down the throat, but don't require jaw action. Cause the more I chewed, the worse it got. It was just "convenient" that I got a throat infection when my cheek was at its worst. Killed two birds with one stone, if you will. Lozenges with throat numbing agents (not menthol.. the other kinds) also help numb your cheek some.



ETA: Talk carefully or not at all. Also easier when you have a sore throat cause it hurts! I remember having to consciously move my cheek out of my teeth area when I shut my mouth all the day, and talking slowly when I did to not accidentaly get my cheek caught in my teeth.

I am sorry to hear this.



I had some dental work done on a molar that needs to be crowned. That was about a week ago and my gums and cheek in that area are still swollen and sore. So I am sorry for your situation.
