    Question TOOTH PAIN after hospital stay for sore throat!!

    Hi all,

    I just recently had a four day hospital stay due to an extremely bad sore throat an inner ear pain. It was deduced (FINALLY) that it was a very deep infection down in the soft tissue of my throat, just under my glands.
    I was given the antibiotic Una-cin (not sure of that spelling) to heal it. I was also given steroid shots and a morphine drip while I was there for both the pain and swelling.
    I am out now, and back to the working world, and I am on a liquid antibiotic called Augmentin (I think. I am at work, if that is wrong I will correct myself at home.) I was given Roxicet for the pain, but am not taking it.
    My question is: I am having really bad tooth pain. I don't know if it is a side effect of the drug, or if it is because I was brushing my teeth with whatever they had at the hospital, or what? But when I bite down on something, there is a lot of pain. There is a little bit of sensitivity, but more pain when I bite on harder things (when I bite on anything, really) than anything else.
    Has anyone ever heard of this?

    Thanks much!!
    Jon

    Hi Jon,

    Did they find out the cause of the infection in your neck? Maybe your tooth was infected first and spread to your neck.

    It would be a good idea to go to the dentist to get it checked out.

    Hope your feeling better..

    Oh my gosh, I didn't think of that.
    Ack! I wish I never posted this question!!!!!!!

    They did not find the cause of the infection, but they said it was probably just some bacteria I picked up and my body was already weakened from a previous cold.
    If my tooth was infected, wouldn't it hurt before my throat would?
    Also, several teeth hurt, not just one.... so I am hoping that it's not an infection.
    Besides, I brush and floss and use Plax in the morning and Listerine at night!!! COME ON TEETH!!!!

    I hate the dentist.

    Thanks for the help - I'll probably lose sleep now. Yeah. Thanks.

    Seriously though, thanks!
    Jon

    well if you're worried I would see the dr. Perhaps you had a staph infection that either came or went to your tooth (teeth)
