Hi, I had 1 upper wisdom tooth removed 3 days ago and during that time I've been through the most excruciating pain of my entire life. I cannot talk, I can't eat, and I can't sleep. My face began to swell so I went back to my dentist this morning and she told me I have a dry socket and an infection. I was prescribed anti biotics and mersyndol pain killers which she advised me are very strong. The problem is the pain killers take 2 hours to kick in and only mask the pain for around 2 hours. I can't keep taking them too often because I don't want to overdose as you're not supposed to exceed 8 in a 24 hour period so I am left in tears for hours. Pus keeps dripping from the site straight down my throat and it tastes awful, I already threw up twice. I'm trying to keep the area clean with salt water rinses but does anyone else have some advice they could give me? I'm going through hell and the next time I can see my dentist again is in 2 days time. Help :(
