Constant Sneezing after wisdom teeth extraction

Yesterday I got all 4 wisdom teeth extracted - I remember waking up mid surgery from IV sedation, and they put me under for another 30 minutes beyond the 45-60 minute estimation. Apparently it was a difficult surgery, and I didn't get to speak to the surgeon afterwards about any complications because he was understandably behind with other patients.

The first thing I noticed was the pain, of course, but I took oxycodone and amoxicillin, then went to sleep for a few hours. When I woke up I noticed my left nostril was running constantly, and was extremely sensitive in the area that tingles right before you sneeze. Incidentally, this has caused me to sneeze a lot.

I've tried looking this up as a complication of extraction, but all that has come up after searching was a sinus puncture (which this does not really feel like) and the advice to avoid sneezing because it causes dry socket. I have taken sudafed but it has not stopped my sinuses from acting up. What could be causing this? I'm not only irritated by the constant urge to sneeze, but I'm worried if I can't stop the sneezing, it will cause dry socket. Anyone have any insight?

Re: Constant Sneezing after wisdom teeth extraction

Wow, this is very similar to what I am just experiencing today. Prolonged extraction of all 4-wisdom teeth and now my nose is running without stopping. Also sounds like I have the same meds as you. One difference is my sneezing happened on the way home before I had any meds. I am kind of suspicious about how cold the exam area was combined with the prolonged extraction. How did this this turn out for you ... found anything to stop the runny nose or prevent any complications?

One thing I have seen is sneeze through your mouth, and also don't cough hard. I am also going to try some antihistamine, but waiting for the pain med to wear off first. Also I am not blowing my nose, just dabbing it with a cloth, rather than kleenex, to prevent any dust irritation
