I had upper right molar (13?) removed today. It was difficult removal and I felt pressure in my right eye and ear (bizarre). After the extraction, the dentist told me I have an 'open sinus communication'. This sounds very scary. I can't cough, sneeze, rinse my mouth vigorously, blow my nose, bend over, or move my head abruptly. It's now 10 hours later, and I feel dizzy--unbalanced. My right ear and right nostril feel 'wrong'--heavier, colder, and I feel like the right side of my face is heavier. I'm scared I'm going to feel this lack of balance forever. Do people ever feel normal again? I know it's only 10 hours, but I feel like I'm in perpetual vertigo. I started the antibiotics immediately. The dentist wants to see me in one week for a post-op xray to make sure nothing's gone wrong. Is infection all the doctor is worried about? He seemed very concerned--which freaks me out. I don't know what else to look for other than infection? Could this cause a permanent dizziness? I don't know. I've never heard of this before. Please let me know your experiences. Thank you.
