No this is not normal and I think you need to return to your dentist or seek another opinion from an endodontist or another gp. This severity and length of pain is unacceptable.

thanks for helping,,,i called the dentist on thursday,she was off till tuesday on family emerg ,i called her emerg number,,she said she didnt no what was wrong,it shouldnt hurt like that,told me to go to doctor or a clinic and ask for stronger anti-biotics and perks,as she could call the anti-biotics in but not the pain killers as it was a triple perscription,,i went to the doctor,he said it was more the shock,but need to take anti-biotics still,so he prescribed more amoxicillian,thats what i was just on,its not working,and more t3;s,ive gone through about 30 in 2 days,there not working,,she wants to see me tuesday to see whats going on,,i just want the root canal out,,im really hurting,,

you should see a oroot canal specialist for an opinion on what was done and why you are having such problems. it should be someone who has no connection at all to the dentist who alreay treated you.
