Default I really need help!! :( I am in pain!

I am so desperate to find out the answers why I am in this pain!!!

In March, I had a regular checkup with a new dentist and she filled 5 of my teeth. At the time of filling, she injected needles for anesthesia so roughly. As soon as she gave injections, without waiting she worked on the teeth. I was in so much pain and she kept giving me more injections. At the end of the treatment I could not feel any part of my mouth!! And the filings were so painful.
And about a week later, I went to an endodontist because I had an infection on the tooth I had RCT done 5 years ago. He performed apicoecotomy on #13. After the surgery I took an antibiotic. As I finished antibiotic I was fine for about 2 weeks. And then all of my teeth became so sensitive. All of them! So I could not eat or drink for at least a week. I got better after a week. And left side of my face started hurting. I had ear pain, cheek bone pain, tooth pain on my left side where I had the surgery done. So I went to see the dentist again, and took another round of antibiotic that I finished on May 5 th. While I was on antibiotic I felt a little better, but as soon as I finished the med, the left side pain all started again and gotten worse.
Last week, I went to a different endodontist and he told me I need RCT on #14 which is the next tooth I had apico surgery. So I had RCT on 14 but still in pain!!
Now I have pain on my right side too.
Here are the symptoms I am having.

Left side teeth sensitive and ache
Left side gum pain throbbing
Left side ear pain (feels like someone is stabbing )
Left side cheek bone pain
Left side jaw pain.
Cannot chew on the left side.

Right side cheek bone pain
When I chew on this side, I have pain on right side temple.

Sometimes I feel pain and pressure on the end of both upper teeth..

Any advice is welcome and appreciated..
Please help me..
So desperate!!!

echbehav, I'm not very knowledgeable about dentistry but have had a lot of dental work done over the years. I've never had an apicoecotomy that I know of but understand it's a minor surgical procedure.

I've had a few root canals, and most were tolerable except for one where I'd had a neglected abscessed tooth that I'd waited too long to seek treatment for. Those root canal treatments were quite painful.

So I think root canal treatments can vary considerably in terms of how much suffering they cause. But you knew that, I'm sure.

The dentist filled 5 teeth at once? I had a dentist once who did that, and he gave me several shots of anesthetic all at once. I very nearly passed out.

I didn't go back to him, and I noticed that he'd moved out of state. I had my doubts about whether he was a very good dentist because I've never known another dentist who filled 5 teeth at one time. They've always set me up for one appointment and then another, taking care of one filling at a time until they were all done.

On the basis of this, I'm wondering if you should think about a different dentist. Are these 2 endodontists you've seen doctors recommended by the dentist who filled 5 teeth at one time?

This may sound too drastic but a new dentist, possibly with a referral to a different endodontist too, seems like a good idea at this point. There may be something going on that has escaped the attention of the dentist and endodontists who have been working on your case.

You sound as if you've had a lot of pain ever since March. I hope you can find some good answers soon.

welcome echbehav!

some people develop tmj pain after dental work. cheek pain, jaw pain and problems chewing are symptoms of TMJ.

you can check out the tmj page at : TMD WE GET QUESTIONS...AND COMMENTS | TMJ.org or just google tmj official website.

good luck,
jeannie

I also had an apicoectomy and was in horrible pain after. Antibiotics helped only for a while. It seems the apico failed and I had tooth extracted. The pain stopped. This might be your case too.
