4 years ago, I had a tooth extracted from my upper jaw on the right side. About 1 month later I had an infection in the extraction site which was treated by antibiotics. Some weeks later I developed a pain in the bone above the extraction site, with a rotten smell in my right nostrill. I saw 14 different dectors: dentists, ENT specialists, surgegons, neurologists and what have you. With all sorts of tests, x-rays and MRIs, no body could find any thing wrong or diagnose my case. Twice I had acupuncture treatment with no result. I still have the pain. Constantly.
Any body can tell me what to do? Please.

  • Just a thought but check out Osteomyelitis - a chronic bone infection caused by bacteria - i.e. if an infection gets really bad bacteria can get into the bone. Good luck
