Hello.

You will have to see an ENT specialist for the X ray. He may also help you with the testing of the swelling. Your blood pressure is normal. Hence, there are no chances of excess blood flow from the site of the tooth removal.

Hello.

The shoulder pain has to be addressed with the help of an orthopedic surgeon. Let him examine you. It may be something which needs to be treated.

An infective focus is a place where micro-organisms can accumulate and spread to other parts of the body. The area where the tooth was removed from can act as a focus.

You stated you had a root canal and EVER SINCE? did you go back to the ORAL SURGEON AND ASK HIM TO DO A SPECIAL XRAY on the same area to make sure he got the WHOLE ROOT? you could have radiating pain from that, or in fact have another tooth about to go on the spitz to a newer root canal. They have xrays where they inject a dye into the root of the tooth and the Dentist can look for the health of the tooth. I do recall having neck and shoulder pain with my inflammed root. Perhaps you have an infection in the gum or under the incision that is radiating. Id suggest going back to your oral surgeon and having them recheck the matter , if he did it wrong they are respsonsible so it wont cost additional to redo it. good luck

Hello.

he shoulder pain may not be related to the removal of the teeth. Can you recall any injury to the shoulder? Did you have the pains in shoulder after you had the fall?

Have you followed up with your dental surgeon after the pains have started? There may be an infective focus, and probably abscess formation. A fracture would have been a lot more unbearable. I would suggest you consult your dental surgeon soon. You will probably need to get an X ray of the paranasal sinuses.
