Re: I am up
Unfortunately, this probably won't help you tonight, but if you can find some clove oil tomorrow (I had to get mine at the health food store) you can dilute it and rub a drop on her gums. It will probably burn at first, but within a couple of minutes she will be numb.
As for whether or not it is normal for it to get worse at night, I think it is just that during the day there is enough to distract them from the discomfort, at least a little bit. At night there isn't the distractions.
