Everything in my mouth hurts?

Over the past week, I've had a high fever and suffered the symptoms of the flu. Muscle pains, migraines, coughing, sore throat etc. I also had a dentist appointment on the third day of that week, Tuesday. They did their job, and cleaned my teeth blahblah, but my gums were really pooofed up? I also have braces .. and when they were cleaning, it was way bloody. Ever since, my gums has been hurting like hell. On that same day, I also went to the doctor, I thought I had the Swine Flu, I was really afraid so I wanted my mom to take me there and check me out. My throat was really painful. So now, I'm taking some sort of medicine they prescribed me called Amoxicillin. So now, here I am, I'm over the flu but my mouth really really hurts. I haven't eaten for a week. I also started to have these canker sore looking blisters in my mouth, there's about 3-4 of them.

I'm started to get irritated that my mouth hurts so much. I can't chew because if anything touches the gums, they'll just hurtttttt really bad. I've brushed my teeth, but it's not as clean? as I'd normally do it.

What should I do? When will this pain go away?!

Amoxicillan is for infection and will also help  your gums.  They only reasons for them to be so sore after a cleaning is if they had a lot of plaque build up, and/or the hygienist was very careless.  This happened to me and I complained to the dentist.  His hygienist told me that the dentist expects her to see a certain amount of patients a day, which forces her to rush and not take the needed time with each patient.  Talk to your mom about this and ask her to question them as to why they are so sore, and if need be, I'd get them cleaned elsewhere next time.  Be very gentle when brushing your teeth, and rinse after meals with warm water and a little baking powder.

Thanks for commenting, the gums has gotten either better or I've just gotten use to it. But I feel much, much better and have been eating. My gums are now starting to look really disgusting .. and sickly-like. It's white .. I think and some of them look bloody inside? My mom says it'll just go away? .. But I don't think so.
