Had sinus sugery 4 days ago (fixed deviated septum, right turbinate reduction, sinus drainage hole enlarged). Gum pain is a lot worse than the sinus surgery pain in nose/sinuses. General anesthesia caused 3 ulcers, the one on gum-line hasn't healed, very painful, seemed to be the trigger. (Some numbing, tingling under top teeth from surgery but can deal with that.) Started tonight treating ulcer areas with OTC Oral B wound wash and added a canker/aloe vera ointments that helps but doesn't calm gums. Concerned because my gums all over are throbbing, bottoms more than top, to the point I can't sleep, pain pills not killing the gum pain. Flossing doesn't help but that is the feeling...that gums are swollen and aching all over, a bad throbbing almost itching feel. Taking Lavequin, tylenol (now on ibuprofen). Gums don't seen red. Teeth are sore esp on bottom that I dread touching them together. They seem inflamed and getting worse each day, not better. What could be going on? What can help?
