I'll merge these 2 threads together, it'll be better to keep track of what's been going on rather than start all over again.

Sorry. No, there's nothing obvious. Did you get the bite re-checked?

I just came back from my visit with the third dentist this month
Third times a charm I guess . The filling wasn’t bonded properly , there was a crack on the filling and there were 4 cavities inside , close to the nerve !
I wasn’t imagining my pain and I’m glad we finally found the problem ! Now I have a special paste on the tooth ... it’s not the final tooth . The dentist called it a “medication” . I have to wait for two weeks now

I got different replies including a crack , bonding issues , cavities still inside and all three were correct ! I would have never imagined it was combination of all these issues .

Sadly it’s worse again . The pain started stronger than before and I can’t eat anything now . I’ve been crying all day
😭 I guess it wasn’t any of these issues and it’s not bonding issues and it wasn’t even the cavities . The pain is unbearable
I’m on antibiotics and medications . I’m so sad
I lost all hopes

Anyone has an idea what the issue could be ?? I’m shocked that this issue cannot resolve itself . My bite has been adjusted (I have a temporary filling) . I can’t chew ! It feels and burns like an open wound - bruise or as if someone’s removed my filling and was blowing on it . Any idea ? Please help . I’m on antibiotics and pain killers and they’re not working ... I can’t eat anymore

Sounds like the nerve is dying off now. You'll need to go back to the dentist again, sorry.

I am in constant contact with my new dentist ... I spoke to her yesterday
She put a medicated paste in my tooth , calcium hydroxide
