I had a back molar extracted two days ago and had almost no pain after the anesthesia wore off. Yesterday it started hurting, and the pain continues today; it feels like a bad toothache deep down. I have no swelling, bleeding, gum pain or redness and as far as I can see the area looks good. Lymph nodes aren't swollen or tender. I don't think it's the tooth next to it as that tooth isn't sensitive to heat, cold, tapping or biting. Even before the tooth was extracted it didn't hurt like this, in fact it barely hurt at all. What could possibly be going on?
