My wisdom tooth on my right side has been bothering me for a few years now.
About 4 years ago I was told by my dentist that I needed to get them taken out because they were coming in sideways, and going to push all of my teeth together.
For the past year or so it has been causing me lots of pain.
Now, instead of a tooth, it is a rather large hole.
(yes, its gross) But every single time I eat anything I have to get a toothopick and clean out the hole.
And just recently within the last 3 months or so, it has gotten to the point where I cant stand it anymore.
I have extreme pain. I have been taking Excedrin and ibuprofen around the clock. But I think Im taking it so much I'm becoming immune. The pain is all along the right side of my jaw. Then it feels like someone has a steak knife inside of my ear. And all the way down the front and back of my neck is tender and sore. I cant even sleep on my right side anymore or I wake up an hour later in excruciating pain.
My sinuses have been really bad.And just yesterday it seems like my vision on my right side is blurred.
Anyone know what is going on? Is it infected and how serious is this?
I know its not good.
The problem is I have no health insurance. And Cant afford much of anything.
Just looking for some answers on what to do.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks
