My girlfriend had her last 5 bottom teeth removed 6 weeks ago. The pain will NOT stop. She describes it as hot acid in a line through her jaw. It is worse at night or after physical exertion. Her ears are involved, often suddenly draining hot water. She is having herpes simplex outbreaks one after the other. Her dentist refuses to help or provide an answer, he hasn't even examined her lower gums since the extraction & subsequent (running) stitch removal. She is in agony 75% of the time. She has a feeling of foreboding, feels she will die from this. PLEASE HELP US!

  • it is difficult to comment with out seeing the case clinically but as it all started after getting the extraction done, it looks like she has the infected extraction socket like dry socket. In that pain is quite acute and lasts so long after the procedure. She can visit another dentist as the dry socket needs proper treatment. She has to do the proper course of antibiotics and get the socket cleaned and get the dressing. If the extraction sockets are completely healed and there is no infection then may be the problem lies elsewhere. If you want to know more about the dry socket you can visit the following link
