Exclamation Abscess tooth & shortness of breath

I have had many Abscessed teeth as I don't have insurance so I can't afford to see a dentist. The current one is in the top upper left all the way in the back. I have taken bactrim DS for the past 3 days and it helped somewhat (I know it is not for my problem but It is what we had) I have had severe headaches today with shortness of breath to the point I can't really go more than 10 feet with out feeling so tired and short of breath. Now the pain feels like it is in my jaw and seems to creep down the base of my neck. I really don't know if these things are related or if I might have another problem on my hands. My heart seems to flutter every few hours to the point where I feel like I should be able to look down and see it beating (but of course I can't) My legs also seem to hurt just to move them but they are not swollen. My hands are starting swell.....has increased over the last few hours. Not sure what I should do or if I am just being a big baby.
