i have been in pain for about 4 wks now. i wasnt registered with dentist but went to a local one i had used yrs ago. turned out to be private but pain was so bad, i wasnt bothered. had check up, he said i had abcess, 3rd tooth from bk. gave me antibiotics for 3 days. he also said bk wisdom tooth wud need to come out as wasnt helping. anyway pain seemed to disappear, but wisdom tooth started to hurt, strange as it didnt before. was due to go bk 16th april, long time i no, for wisdom tooth out. 2 wks later, this was thurs, unbearable pain for 3 days, no sleep, glands were swollen, pains in ear and head, went to nhs walk in centre, didnt even no it existed. he looked, did x-ray, said there was infection in gum, and wisdom tooth wud need to come out as not helping. so 4 injections later, tooth is out. numb face for about 6 hours, best 6 hours ever... pain free. once it wore off pain came bk with a vengenance. it is now sat, half way through antibiotics, taking strongest pain killers available over counter, and the odd ibruprofen as well and still no improvement. the pain now seems to be in top teeth as well as bottom. cant close mouth properly, teeth dont seem to meet, pains in ears and head worse than ever, and was told to rinse with salty water. tried few times, nearly went through the roof!!! ouch is that supposed to hurt. and keep gettin sort of shooting/stabbing pains where tooth removed. i also seem to be having trouble swallowing tablets, seems like throat very narrow. and antibiotics taste awful, get stuck on bk of tongue. have spent hour or so reading other posts, so maybe i just need to b patient, but any advice would be great. my mum has told me to ring nhs direct for advice on pain but always feel like its a bit trivial, and they think im mardy. :?
