That is probably just referred pain from that area. The nerves in that area travel up to the brain through various connections and sometimes the connections cross over and the signal gets a little mixed up and the pain feels like its from somewhere else.
I hope so! The pain is more in my jaw and around my ear rather than where the tooth was pulled.
As long as the pain is improving, it means that the area is healing most likely. You may want to ask for a strong pain medication and I would consider another post-operative check if the pain does not improve.
The pain has improved, yes. I still have the throbbing though.
No, unfortunately the dressing is usually used to help alleviate the pain in that area. Your surgeon may consider trying to re-induce the bleeding in the socket and try to get a scab to form to cover up the socket. Has the pain improved at all since the day of the extraction?
