Hi all.

I've been in a cycle since the beginning of April,
but over the last week and a half, the beast seems to
have been packing up his bags and leaving. The worst HA I
had during this week lasted only 8 minutes, etc.

Yesterday, I had a dentist appointment, just a routine
cleaning. I had a pretty bad cavity filled about 6 mos. ago,
and when the hygentist scraped at it, it became irritated.
I wasn't given any drugs at the dentists, it was just a cleaning.

Later that night, this tooth started to hurt like hell, before
bed. After I went to sleep, I woke up in a lot of pain.
I was so tired that at first I thought it was my tooth.
Then I realized it was a cluster, by far the worst one in
over a week. It lasted for at least 45 minutes, again, by
far the longest in over a week.

Can there be some connection between the tooth pain and the
head pain? It seems like more than coincidence, but I don't know
how to explain it.
(The tooth feels alot better today BTW, just a little bit sore)
