Interesting chain of Events

So I have had a toothache for the last few days. First I tried to decide if my sinus's were causing me grief, but after a cranky day yesterday, I decided to go and see a dentist this morning.
The dentist was reluctant at first to take x-rays, because of my pregnancy....um.....yeah.
After we cleared up that mis-diagnosis, she took the x-rays and did some digging around....and this was the conclusion.
For the past 5 weeks I have been using a new toothpaste that has a very strong bleach for whitening. Apparently some of it got into a tiny crack in a filling...irritating it. This coupled with the fact that I have been clenching my teeth at night (and while driving), due to stress (of driving) has caused me this pain.
....who woulda thought.
