Excruciating toothache with sinus infection?
I have a sinus infection for which I just got on a Z-pack yesterday. My upper right molars are KILLING me just about 24-7!!! I called my dentist and they said it is sinus related for sure. Can anyone give me some ideas on how to get some relief at home? I can't eat, can't sleep, can't work. HELP!:confused:

Re: Excruciating toothache with sinus infection?
For short term relief until the Z-pak starts to work your best bets are:
[INDENT]1. Take a decongestant like 12-hour sudafed to relieve some of the pressure.
2. Buy a SinusRinse starter kit and follow the instructions for sinus irrigation to flush some of the infected mucus from your sinuses.
3. Take Ibuprofen or Tyelenol for the pain[/INDENT]
It will take a few days for the Z-pak to start working but these things should give you some relief.
