Because my tooth extraction site was so painful, I woke up at 5 AM. 4 days ago, I had my top wisdom teeth pulled. OxyContin only helped one side. The other side of my mouth is still throbbing and stinging as bad as before I took the painkiller. I also feel a bit sick to my stomach. I’ve been doing salt water rinses 4 times daily and following all the other instructions. I’m worried that the pain might be from an infection since the meds didn’t help. I called my dentist earlier today but haven’t gotten a call back.
