Ok, so 3 weeks ago I finally went to the dentist after years of putting it off.
First thing we did was start a (very painful) root canal. Got an appointment for the next week to get it finished. Called them 2 days after due to severe pain and was told that is was normal so i left it at that and just took painkillers. The day for the finishing of the root canal came and I was looking forward to getting it done. The dentist gave me about 15 shots of anastechics and got started (no xray) and the pain I felt can not be explain, I had to stop him and cried for about 10 mins for the pain and I think the trauma. Dentist then took xray and could see the tooth was infected. He put in a temporary filling and sent me on my way with antibiotics, this is 10 days ago and it seems to be no better. I went back to dentist for a new prescription and am now experiencing severe pain, headache and stiffness in the neck!
A few questions.
Did the dentist do something to make this problem worse?(is it normal)
and should i be worried about the head ache, stiff neck and the fact that after 10 days on antibiotics still have an infection? Bit scared it's gone to the jaw bone.
Additional info: Allergic to penicillin so of course not on that
Thank you in advance.
