I've had a week and a half of constant, severe pain due to an abcessed tooth which was treated by a root canal which then went wrong. It still hasn't been completely fixed, but today my pain mostly went away. I had been taking back to back paracetamol and ibuprofen which had only scratched the surface of the pain. I've been on the anti-biotic flucloxacillin all this time too, so the dentist is insistent that I no longer have an infection.
Now my whole body feels awful and I keep losing my balance and getting chills. I can't turn my head without the whole room spinning and I can't walk around without falling to one side. What is happening to me?
