Pain in jaw, swollen lymph node below ear and jaw, antibiotic, wisdom teeth taken out

Having constant dull pain in jaw on left side neat ear, slightly swollen lymph node below ear and jaw. Random spasms in temple. So far I ve been treated twice with antibiotics to no avail. This has been going on for 2 months. Kind of feels like a constant state of sucking on something very sour. Had wisdom teeth taken out to make sure that wasn t the cause. Still have it two weeks later. waiting on xrays and went to chiropractor hoping for cure there.feel better as in now the pain is tolerable without ibuprophen but still there.

Dentist 's  Response
hi,i read your problem,this may be due to infection spread to the oral spaces,as you said you have swollen lymphnodes on the left side it is because of some infection on that side.and you have muscle spasm may be due to some habits like bruxism or truma to that side i will suggest you please go to an oral surgeon and go for whole mouth examination and follow all the given instructions and take a proper treatment.nothing to get worried.
take care

This condition looks like localized osteomyelitis and you have lymphadenopathy also. you should consult with good oral surgeon and in my opinion a microbiological examination should carried out before starting antibiotics.
