Hello everybody! I'm new here. My name is Rachel, and I'm 30 years old. I went to the dentist about two weeks ago. Oh boy did I have some work done. In three hours time, I had three tooth-colored fillings, one crown, and three wisdom teeth pulled. Here's the crazy part! NOTHING HURTS but the fillings on my lower left side of my mouth. The teeth themselves don't hurt, but deep underneath is KILLING ME. I know he had to give me a "block" with the novocaine. It has not settled in two weeks, and I'm on Advil constantly! Once I take the Advil, everything is fine. But when it wears off, my entire lower jaw hurts all the way up to the inside of my ear! Even weirder! My arm left arm and shoulder are now feeling strange....like, numbness and weakness. I've been back to him, and he's filed it down, but nothing. So I went back again, and he said he doesn't understand any of my side effects, and to give it another week to settle. What the heck am I feeling here???
