Slight burning in cheek, swelling inside and outside of cheek! Really worried!

Hello everyone;

I had my root canal done on Monday by a dentist, upper left 26th. I had got a cavity in there, although was not so much painful but due to weather and I was not able to resist anything cold so I went with root canal and I considered it safe. During root canal, my dentist was able to find fourth root of same tooth and cleaned it as well. Everything was done in single sitting and I came back home. Things went good. On Wednesday morning, I started feeling some swelling on my cheek (outside) which was not very noticeable though and I even did not care about it. In night of Wednesday, I was not able to sleep due to pain so I took appointment to the dentist and got checked. When he touched far above my gums, he found swelling inside mouth as well and told me that I have got abcesses. Then he prescribed me antibiotics, amoxycillin and Flagyl both 500 mg, 3 times @24hrs. I also told him that I have been feeling pressure in my cheek bone and eye which he said that it is due to body's natural response to left over infection. Anyways, I started taking antibiotics. Now after 3rd day, I do have swelling which is almost same of day 1st, I have redness on my cheek outside and as well as BURNING (which is scaring me if I have got trigemial neuropathy, I am always feeling something is pressuring me from inside and outside is burning with a pain which goes with Advil). In night when I try to sleep, I can feel the pressure in my nose area as well. Please help me out, what should I do? I have asked 2-3 dentists and they say its normal. My own dentist says that its normal. I do not have xrays done after filling, which I will be getting in my appointment tomorrow. Now I am so much scared, the worst thing is neurological disorder, is it this easy to get TN???

Please help me out.... Please!
