So about 4 days ago I started to get this shooting pain in my jaw on and off, at first I thought it was my jaw that got hurt somehow, because when I pressed on each tooth bone hurts. But then 2 days later it progress to a throbbing pain from one of my upper right tooth, and it hurts like hell when I touch the tooth (even slightly touch!). I went to doctor as the closest dentist appointment available is a week away. The doctor saw my gum is red but not really swollen, she prescribed metronidazole (Flagyl) 400mg, 3 times a day, as I'm allergic to penicillin so she didn't give me amoxicillin. And I'm taking panadol for the pain. The panadol is working a little but the pain is never completely gone. I start taking the antibiotic last night, but I dont yet feel any relief, not sure how long does the antibiotic take to work but it hurts so bad, especially when I eat or when I sleep, the pain is almost unbearable
