That’s how I feel! Why is it when one tooth hurts, it makes your entire body hurt? My husband called the dentist yesterday for me, and they said to go to the oral surgeon. I went to the oral surgeon, he gave me some penicillin and vicodin and told me to go to the dentist. I saw the dentist this morning, and am currently waiting on a call back from the oral surgeon with an appointment. At least when I left the dentist office this morning I was numb, and that lasted for 6 glorious hours. Now I can feel the pain again. My jaw is throbbing and my ear is ringing. Can I just bury my head until someone figures out what will help me?
