hi, i just had a question. trying to ease my overworrying brain
for the past few years i have had an infected tooth, recently i had gotten a root canal. the infection was really severe and the tooth was abcessed. it made me feel pretty lousy for along time.
took antibiotics for a while. and i admit i didnt take them at the times i was supposed to. so the infection is still there. i have to go back on monday and get a cap on my tooth.
but i'm worried about this pain.
i just feel sick..i have pain all on the right side of my head, my right eye, my neck and really bad on my right shoulder. my glands are swollen on that side and it has the same pain on the right side of my jaw where my tooth is.
is this normal for a tooth infection? keep in mind its a pretty bad infection.
i just started back up on amoxicillin yesterday and sofar there are no improvements.
i'm not sure if the pain and ickiness i feel is from this infection or if it could possibly be something else?
i tried to look it up on the internet but i see nothing of neck or shoulder pain. so it kindof worried me because i've been like this a few weeks.
could it possibly be that the infection had spread?
i'm not sure what else could be wrong but it makes me feel horrible and i'm not sure if i should just relax and take the antibiotics and not worry about it...or if i should be concerned that maybe something is wrong and see a doctor or go to the hospital or something?
if you have any ideas please let me know.
this tooth is going to be the death of me. haha
