go to the endo if that doesnt help go to a neurologist! i dont have a clue what could be causing your pain but it is not normal. some mild pain might occur after a root canal enough to warrant a couple advil and a nap not the horrible pain you are describing. even the typical failed root canal wouldnt cause that kind of pain. good luck and keep us posted!
I had a root canal on Monday and I have yet to go back to get it filled but I've experienced severe pain since the anesthetics wore off. My dentist has said there's no infection and I'm on painkillers which ease the pain for about an hour then wear off. I have trouble sleeping too. I really don't know what to do. I hope by now you have found a solution to your problem. If you have, please share. I'm sorry I cannot give you any advice, as I am in the same boat. But I really hope you feel better.
Gravity boots or yoga are better than a chiropracter for putting your spine back inline if thats the problem. An aspirin sized amount of calcium powder rubbed on the gums will provide very rapid pain control. Too much at one time will give you headache. Rinse mouth with warm water with teaspoon salt in it or clean seawater if you can get it. Oregano tea either cold or hot can take of infection. Oregano oil is also available. Chose this before taking antibiotics. Place a teaspoon of virgin coconut oil in mouth and swish it around as long as possible also good for dental problems, called oil pulling
I'm going through the exact same thing, i had a root canal first then went back and they went deeper and did it again now i have extreme pain all through my right side of my jaw down in the jaw and it feels like my gland is swollen on the right side. the vicodin isn't even working anymore and im on antibiotics, what was the outcome of what was happening with you. mine was done by the VA so lord only knows if the guy did something wrong or not. but i cant sleep and feel like im going to vomit it hurts so bad and i have a high tolerance to pain. please tell me what you did or what i need to do. thank you
I so relate. I had a root canal on one side after an awful toothache. Had another toothache two weeks later on the other side. had another root canal. Pain went away for one week. Came back. It turns out it's the tooth next to the last one I had root canal. So i had three root canals in 1 and a half months. And I still have pain in other teeth. Does anyone out there know if this is normal? to have so many in such a short amount of time? It's been soooo painful. Help!
