Jaw pain 5 days after extraction

Had a lower very broken tooth extracted 5 days ago but in the last 2 days have developed jaw pain that stopped me sleeping last night! The dentist used some kind of instrument that was like a staple gun feeling against my gum I guess to loosen it in the jaw where it was broken off so low. I'm really worried something is wrong with my jaw bone!!
If it kept you awake last night then phone your dentist and get it looked at.
