I m 27 and I had all four of my wisdom teeth removed 2 weeks ago. I never took any pain medicine, as I really had no pain with them. Shortly afterwards (3 to 4 days) I started getting pretty dizzy. I thought this was because of the antibiotic I was on ( Clindamycin ) - I was also nauseous, felt out of it /like I was constantly dreaming instead of being awake, and had some pain in my lower abdomen. Under the okay of the oral surgeon, I stopped taking the antibiotic about a week ago, but I am still VERY dizzy. I don t seem to have any of the other symptoms that I did have. Recently, one of my ears started hurting a bit - making me think I had an inner ear infection, possibly caused by an infection from the wisdom teeth extraction site. I went and saw the oral surgeon yesterday, and he said that my sockets are still pretty open but he saw no infection. He also said that the teeth should not be making me dizzy now. I then went to see my GP today and he said my ears look fantastic and they re not infected. I also started taking a new anti- depressant (Wellbutrin, 150mg, 1x a day) about a month ago. I contacted my psychiatrist and told her about the dizziness , but she does not think it s from the medicine. Any ideas as to what the dizziness is from? Should I see an ENT?
