Had dental work done, right sinus/side of nose, painful, frequent sneezing, running nose, increase in post nasal drip. Cure?


I had dental work done yesterday and since then my right sinus/side of my nose is painful, frequent sneezing, running nose and increase in post nasal drip. The Novocaine injection hurt more than usual - wondering if i should be worried as this has not happened to be before and have had Novocaine injected in the front top of my mouth before. Thanks.
