Can decayed wisdom tooth makes you sick?

Hi guys, i've been suffering for two months now, I really need help. Two months ago I was eating some chunkfoods, then I suddenly hit the decayed wisdom tooth(lower). The impact of it was really bad, the pain radiate to my jaw and face. The pain last for seconds only, I looked in the mirror to see any damage in my wisdom tooth, suddenly the tooth cracked. I ignore it, because the pain subsided, no swollen jaw and face no tooth ache at all. But after two days I started to feel sick, severe dizziness as if something is eating my energy inside my body, i feel pressure at the back of my head. Extreme fatigue, muscle ache and weakness, GERD, spaced out, balance problem. I can't concentrate, I want to just lie down in our bed and just sleep.  I cried sometimes because I don't know what happened to my health, I am very healthy before that incident.  I went to my dentist and told him the whole story, he probe the tooth and ask if it hurts, I said no. He told me maybe its just an anxiety. OFCOURSE NOT! The apperance of the tooth is really bad, too much decayed and cracked. Please help me.

Hello~I would definitely see another dentist, preferably an orthodontist instead of a regular dentist. YES, a decayed wisdom tooth can make you sick, it is spreading poison through your body.
I wold take care of this as soon as possible. I hope you feel better soon.

Thankyou! It's been two months now. I already visit an orthodontist and she said I need to remove the bad tooth. But i'm scared of extraction because of what I read in the internet, that there is a possibility of sepsis after a tooth extraction.  Please enlighten me!

Hello~There is very little change of sepsis after the extraction. The dentist will  probably give you an antibiotic to take after and the procedure will be done in a sterile environment.  Taking the antibiotic will certainly prevent any infection. I wouldn't worry at all, you have more of a chance of sepsis if you DO NOT have it extracted.
