Hi all...

Just want to hear if anyone out there has ever experianced or has any idea what is causing the pain that I'm going through right now. About a week ago one of my teeth on the right hand said of my upper jaw started paining. Now a week later, the whole right side of my upper and lower jaw is in constant extreme pain. The minute I let anything cold or hot into my mouth it feels like im about to pass out.... traveling in a car also causes intense pain. But then... thats just intense compared to the constant pain im in. I'm on heavy pain meds (which dont help) and anti-biotics (which mean less than the pain meds) and the maxillo facial surgeon says I have a senstive tooth... um.... not to down his opinion... but I really dont think he has a clue what exactly is going on... and i dont think he believed the severetiy of the pain. He prescribed a muscle relaxant and some more pain meds (yippy.... guess what... they not working either) . Its two weeks before I can see a different maxillo facial surgeon for a second opinion... and im worried that i might hit myself over the head with a brick before then just to stop the pain..... Can anyone give me any advice.... PLEASE!!!
