I suffer from OCD and a complex form of tourette's syndrome, which seem to be pretty well tied together in my case, among other things. A while back, I got pretty depressed and stopped taking care of myself very well for a few months. I'm now in a better place, maintaining everything and not super depressed or anything, but I had a few cavities to get taken care of. One of my problems is, my sense of touch has to be even, for example, if someone were to brush past me and touch my left elbow, I would have to touch my right elbow in the same place. This also applies in my mouth. After getting a few fillings and a root canal/crown, one of my fillings has been high which causes one of my teeth to touch before all of the other teeth, which really causes me significant discomfort, and the root canal/crown tooth is bigger than the rest, which bothers me a lot. It's to the point where it's pretty much constantly on my mind and making me miserable. The high filling is getting adjusted, but I don't know how I'm ever going to get used to this crown. Anyone have tips on how to manage the discomfort? It's incredibly frustrating and I don't know how I'm going to live with this for the rest of my life. I've never had therapy or anything for it, but I've never had success with medication.
