My husband pulled one of his teeth about 3 weeks ago. It was upper lefthand eyetooth it was double rooted. He ended up with a headache, so I took him to the ER here in Helena and the doctor on call told him his mouth looked good inside. She(the dr.) gave him pain pills and antibiotics. My husband started the meds but by morning his left shoulder was hurting and he said his lungs felt like he had pnemonia. I ended back at the hospital a second time and they X-rayed his shoulder and lungs and the same dr. said no pnemonia. (Shethedr.)just gave him more pain pills. The 3rd time we went he seen a doctor at Urgent Care and he was very rude. Told my husband that he was just having withdrawels from meds. The pain aids didn't touch the pain so he didn't even take all those. Brian my husband finished the antibiotics about 11 days ago. He (my husband) is still having stuff come up from his lungs and his shoulder is feeling better now. But should it take that long to heal from pulling an infected tooth? Remember He (my husband pulled it himself.) It was infected and an eyetooth so could that cause infection to run thru and make his shoulder feel like it was out of socket and cause him to have felt like something in his lung pop and have like elmers glue thats dry and a little thicker than elmers glue? He doesn't have an appetite and hes didn't eat for like the first week. He drank fluids even water and he said he can't quench his thirst. He has only took a few bites of food in the last 2 weeks. Why would he feel like he could not quench his thirst and what do you think?
