****hoping someone is here for advice, we all know toothache is terrible especially when it hardly lets up. had a root canal in a large bottom tooth 20 years ago, the gold filling fell out about 2 weeks ago, i was surprised it didnt hurt instantly, but it did a few days later, throbbing and pulsating,i didnt help things by keep touching it with my tongue, obviously im not a dentist fan so delayed going until i couldnt stand it any longer, i thought it was an abcess , it hurt like hell even with the lightest of touch, was taking too many cocodamol really, rinsing with salt water and using clove oil, which helped a bit, although too much clove oil made me sick, anyway a few diazepam and i was in the dentists chair she confirmed it was an abcess and she could see it, the pain was in my neck jaw and ear and also pain on the other side of my jaw (referred pain) . prescribed metronidazole for 5 days 600mg per day, its day 4 of 5 and its just the same, im fed up, should i wait and finish the course? or go back and say i dont think its working? i promised her i would have it out when the infection has gone but at this rate dont know when that will be, i just dont like taking all these painkillers, am i just being impatient, answer if you can please to help thanks x
