I had a bad abscess which gave me headaches, eye aches, ear aches, swollen lymph nodes, pain to my jaw and neck and trismus low grade fevers. Had to have tooth removed last Tuesday. Hurts less but still having some ear aches and some jaw pain. How long will this take to heal approximately?
Were you given an antibiotic? If so, you should feel much better within the next week so hang in there.
You need to contact your dentist ASAP. Sounds like you need an antibiotic. Sometimes they will pull one hoping that will sove the problem, but you need an antibioitic if you are running a fever & other side effects...
