I having pain since 2 weeks ago which started out in the lower left part of my mouth, a toothache. It was severe enough to keep me up half the night, coming on very suddenly. Also very senstitive to cold liquids. I went to the dentist 2 days later, and he did an examination, took x-rays, and could find nothing wrong except slightly inflamed gum. The pain is still there, and it is just as severe, sometimes radiating into my upper cheek as well. Very unlocalized, except always on the left side of my cheek/mouth. I can keep it completely under control with IB profen, but every 8-10 hours like clockwork it comes back if I haven't taken the meds. I don't know what to do, as the dentist has no idea what's wrong.
