Worst pain i've ever had.

I was up for almost three days until the pain seemed to numb itself as I finally fell asleep yesterday. The only relief I get is to have cold liquids or ice on the area to numb the pain

I was fine once I fell asleep and didn't wake up from pain. Now the Dentist claims that this is an infection. I can feel a spot that hurts a small bit if I touch it but it is up so high and looks like its covered up by skin and it's not visible.

This is on the upper right side and the pain comes in the very last tooth. The area where I can touch and feel a hard spot that feels like it has something in it is farther down though.

I have been through a full bottle of antibiotics and half way through another and nothing has gotten better.

Re: Worst pain i've ever had.

It would appear as though you do have a tooth that the nerve is dying. Your dentist can do a few tests to help determine exactly which tooth it is. Do not wait because something like this does not get better on it's own.

Re: Worst pain i've ever had.

I had a tooth exactly like that. The pain continued even after I finished my round of antibiotics. It felt like someone was holding a hot poker to my face. It was an exposed and dying root. I had it pulled and that took care of the pain.
