It started about five months ago, when a had a tooth (right side, no5, a piece broke off) filled. the pain did not go, I got a root canal. pain did not go. I got antibiotics, it became better, but not ok. 2 weeks later my ear (on the same side) started to hurt. the root canal was finished but my pains did not stop. I waited then, went to another dentist, had x-rays but they did not find anything. Also, I went to an ENT dr, nothing was found. later I went to an oral surgeon, who found out that 2 of my teeth on the right (5,6) were wrongly root canaled. the dentist started to do the root canal ( on no5) again, but my pain became worse. Finally, I had both teeth pulled out. that was more than 2 months ago. since then, nothing has become better. I have been to another oral surgeon, a jaw specialist, an ENT doctor, but nobody has found anything.
I have a burning feeling on the right, sometimes it's like needles. my other teeth ache, too, everywhere. Jaw specialist said it is the too much pressure, but it's so hard to believe. I am desperate, I want to get rid of the pain, but I don't know where else to go.
