Of Tooth Aches and Fainting Spells

I went back home to Penang last Friday. That makes it three days ago. I was so excited to go back home and everything. I mean, it's Penang for crying out loud! Yea, I know it's the fasting month but I was just thrilled by the idea of the food!

I was in the car with my bro and a couple of his friends. One of 'em really reminded me of Acap from ASASI...Hm, wonder what happened to that dude????

Anyway, even when I was in the car, I felt my gums salivating a bit more than usual due to the pain. Hey, these things have happened before and lots of my doctors say the same thing again and again.

"Your gums need water when it's the fasting month! They hurt more cuz' your dehydrated."

So I was in vein throbbing pain for the whole day on Saturday. I had to bukak puasa and take like brape puluh biji Ponstan in order to decrease like...gee 20 percent of the pain... The amount of pain killers I took shoulda made me feel like I was in heaven or something...



And then on Sunday...Tragedy...Striked...

I woke up...

Had Sahur with my family...

And then...

Stars, stars, stars...

I saw them...

And then it was total blackout...

Yeah, I fainted. I wasn't at all prepared for it. I was talking and I asked for the water... Suddenly, I saw stars and the next thing I knew was I was in my Mama's arms and she was yelling at me at the top of her lungs.

All I felt was pain all over me and all I heard was my Mom screaming my name.


Everybody was in such a panic. My bro said he thought some horrible thing had befallen on us. He said he was thinking of all the nightmarish things ever.

"Abang dok ingat orang masuk rumah ka, binatang ka! Ada api ka! Scary gila!"

My Mama kept saying what a big huge nightmare gone real life the whole thing was.


She said I'd reached out for the water and then I had it in my hand. I just blinked rapidly and I slumped over within a couple of seconds. Mama said she had no time to make a grab at me and that I fell over, broke the chair I was sitting in, hit my head, shoulder and the whole of my left side against the wall. Alhamdullillah, there was no blood. I wasn't injured in any way except for the fact that I still feel aches and pains on my neck, shoulder blade and hips and ribs...my head hurts most though...

Turned out I had my menses in the next few hours to come. I fainted cuz' of the pain of the tooth ache and my cramps from my menses. When we went to the doctor's, he simply said it was alright. Just that I had low blood due to the loss of blood from my cycle and he recommended I go over to an oxi-whatchamacallit facial surgeon to perform a minor surgery so that my swollen gums get to become normal again.

The stupid image of fainting

The real thing.

Due the medication he's given me, my gums have gone down a bit but it's still swollen and it still hurts when I eat something hard (tho dat doesn't stop me).

So tomorrow's the day I og to the dentist to get my swollen gums fixed. I'm skipping the whole week cuz' of the recovery rate I need after the operation.

Doa for me, my friends.
