For the past three days I've been experiencing an excruciating pain and my dentist is out of town so I hope somebody here can give me some hints..
I've been having sudden, violent pains on my left cheek. The first evening the pain was irradiating on my upper teeth while yesterday and today it affects the lower side. It's really bad, it lasts a few minutes (but I feel like banging my head against the wall) and it usually starts if I'm sitting. If I stand up it gets better and yesterday I found some relief also lying down. When it gets really bad even if it's on my lower teeth I feel pain also behind my upper front teeth and part of the palate. It seems to me also the left side of my tongue hurts and my neck.
I'm currently undergoing some dental treatments so I'm monitored weekly. I thought it could be a nerve but I already had some problems and consequently some root canals and the pain seemed different from the one I'm experiencing. It happens at random, during the day but it's more intense in the evening, esp. after I've spent a lot of time sitting in front of the tv..
Can somebody help me? I'm puzzled. And in pain...
PS: I don't feel any discomfort with hot or cold food or drinks and none of my teeth on that side hurts when I chew
