I had a back molar on the bottom right extracted 5 days ago after a week of antibiotics and severe pain. I had no complications up until 2 days ago when I awoke with a fever and severe pain. I went to a local ER as my dentist was unavailable. They diagnosed it as absessed and gave me a script for an antibiotic and a few pain killers. I am still having severe pain in my jaw on that side and pain in my neck and ear. I saw the dentist today and he said no dry socket and walked out. What could be causing this problem? I am in severe pain that actually brings me to tears.
