Dear Dentists, I submitted a letter before for free consultation about numbness on the right side of my tongue. I got surgery on July 18th, 2012. Recently, my numbness was getting better, I started to feel things, but not taste. But today, I took some medicine, and drink some water when all of a sudden this heat flared up where the numbness and a sharp pain shot through me between my ear lobe and mid-throat. Not only that but the feeling in my mouth was so bad it was like I ate something really horribly spicy and wouldn't go away. The pain is still there and the spicy feel/taste is lingering. I called the surgical office of the place where I did my surgery, but they wouldn't pick up. Did I do something wrong? Do you know what happened?

  • Can you please tell that which medicine you took as sometimes it can be a reaction to medicine also but what i feel is that you might be having a periodontal problem. Having a radiating pain after almost two weeks of surgey is not normal. So, i would suggest you to plan a visit (emergecy) to the oral surgeon and if s/he is not available then go to E.R. Till that time avoid eating anything too hot or too cold.
