Red face Tooth Abscess? Bad taste, mostly filling


I guess I'm just venting here, I'm dealing with multiple issues, and have a mostly metal filled tooth that I had filled when I had the old filling/tooth break off about 2 years ago. The dentist warned me that it was possibly a short-term fix. I forgot about it. I'm being treated for a neck muscle problem after whiplash(I don't want to deal with this too*but i'm scared frustrated), and now have a bitter taste in my mouth and have had it reoccur for three days. I think I need an x-ray. If anyone else knows symptoms well for abcsesses. I'm on ibuphrophen 800's for my neck and i feel a specific pulling underneath that tooth and realize it's a bit swollen right under it along my jaw line. I'm just frustrated. I'm going to call or show up at the same dentists office tomorrow and beg for an x ray and ask how much and see if he can rule out an abscess here. Just angry and confused and if anyone has ever dealt with this? My nurse was sure it was from my ambian, but I'm thinking it's from something else-I'd been on Ambian for months with no taste like this.
