Sounds like torture.  Have you looked up dry socket symptoms? As previous post says it may be an infection and may need antibiotics. I had a wisdom tooth removed on the 1st April and I have dry socket, also a lot of headaches but I had put that down to stress from the dry socket.  Maybe I was wrong.

If you haven't called your dentist you should.  You may have an infection brewing and you don't want that to get out of control.  Hope this helps and that you feel better.
