Pain after extraction

I had a tooth filled and two days later had to go back and get it extracted.  The paid has subsided a lot it has been 24 hours.  However,  I still feel pain around the front of my mouth at the gum lines both top and bottom. The tooth was extracted from the top back (my left side) of the mouth.  It doesn't hurt terrible but its a nagging pain.  My mouth and jaw are awfully sore.  I have never had such pain before after a tooth extraction.  Why are my gum lines feeling sore.  It is no where near the tooth extraction?

this pain is for some period of time...but if it still pains after 2-3 days of extraction, then you need to check with the dentist again.....

   Lots of times you can have referred pain after an extraction, it sounds like you're actually doing very nicely after such a short amount of time.
