I was diagnosed with a dental abscess about two weeks ago. It was treated with antibiotics and a root canal. However 4 days after I was diagnosed with the abscess (prior to the RC) I began experiencing some strange sensations. I felt pressure (and kind of a warm feeling)in both my ears. This was later coupled with pressure in my nose b/w my eyes. This ear/nose pressure has been going on for two weeks now. It occurs just about every day each episode lasting an average of 15 minutes and then subsiding. When I had the root canal done I had another X-ray done which revealed that the abscess was still there despite a week of antibiotics. Could these pressure sensations be related to the abscess in anyway? Any help would be greatly appreciated...I am at my wits end.
I do not think the pressure sensations are related to the abscessed tooth and I also would not anticipate that the infection would be cleared up in that short a period of time.I would suggest that if the ear problem persists you see your MD.
