Sharp pain in jaw, ear, throat. Possibility of sinus infection, lazy eyes, arms weak. Reason?

About 3 weeks ago I starter having a sharp stabbing pain in my right jaw and ear. I figured I had a bad tooth . The dentist said nothing looked out of place. I went to our family doctor and they said it was probably a sinus infection . And prescribed a z pack. The pain has gotten worse, radiating to my right ear and down my throat. It s a horrible stabbing pain that the only thing I can compare to is a dry socket from when I had my wisdom teeth removed 20 yrs ago. I m a healthy active 41 yr old female. I m not over weight nor do I drink or smoke. The pain is debilitating. I don t want to go anywhere or do anything. I went to another doctor and he said I had shingles!? I don t have any kind of a rash?? The pain is getting worse. Feels like my ear is going to explode. I m having a hard time reading and writing my eyes feel so lazy and my arms weak. I m really scared. Ive finished all the acyclovir the doc gave me. No relief.. What s going on?

Dentist 's  Response
A thorough clinical evaluation has to be done by your dentist as well as ENT SPECIALIST.
I would advice you to check for any grossly decayed or impacted wisdom tooth in your oral cavity.
If present,get it removed.
Maintain oral care well.
If symptoms persist,please do visit an ENT SPECIALIST.
Meantime,gargle frequently using warm saline or betadine solution.
Avoid cold,spicy foods.
Too much exposure to cold weather has to be limited.
Take complete course of antibiotics prescribed by your dentist.
Rinse your mouth after every meals.
Hope you get well soon.
