On Christmas eve 2015 a slight pain started and increased. It became very painful so I had an emergency appointment at my dentist 3 days later on 27th December. My dentist took an xray and said my left bottom wisdom tooth had an abscess. This tooth had a root canal filling a few years ago. My denist said this would have to be done again and I should make an appointment on Monday 4th January 2016. My dentist gave me anitobotics (amoxycillin) which I took as prescribed but the pain didn't ease it got worse. My dentist then gave me stronger anitobotics (amoxycillin+metronidazole) to be taken 3 times a day it is now 2nd January and the pain has become unbearable. I noticed that every time I take a dose of amoxycillin+metronidazole the pain gets much worse for about 20 minutes. My dentist doesn't know why this might happen and thinks it's a coincidence.
Can anyone help please?
PS I'm taking Ibuprofen and Paracetamol and I've tried salt water and clove oil, pressing on the spot has also helped but it still hurts.
