For the past week i have been having severe (I can't stress how much pain i'm in) toothache on the right side of my mouth. At first, pain killers easily got rid of the pain within minutes. As a couple of days went by, the pain got worse, more frequent and pain killers stopped working, and the only thing which soothes the pain is icy cold water. The pain sometimes spreads up my face, into my ear & eye. I saw my dentist, who examined my mouth & gave me a x-ray. She told me there were no obvious causes of pain, so the pain could be coming from somewhere else. So, i went on to see a doctor, who told me the pain could be coming from a ulcer, and gave me some gel type stuff to put onto the ulcer and some anti-inflammatory tablets, and told me to buy some co-codamol paracetamol tablets. I've been taking all of the medication, but the pain only seems to be getting worse, and i really need to get it sorted as im going Italy next Thursday. My mum thinks it could be neuralgia. Can anyone suggest what may be the cause of the pain? Or has anyone experianced anything like this? Thanks x
