since last night the right side of my head is numb. i dont know why. i had 4 major teeth pulled at the dentise and he gave me empracet 30 (300mg). now i can feel tooth is still in my gums. should i go back to the dentist and get the rest of the teeth pulled out or will it do it on its own. my dentist says there are only pieces left and should come out, but i feel a large piece and its starting to hurt me and that is 1 problem tooth out of 4. could this be the reason the right side of my head is going numb for some reason.

since yesterday half of my head has velt numb. i had 4 teeth extracted and one of the teeth took 45 minutes to come out , but the tooth that took so long seems to still have a good portion in my gum. dentist said is should come out on its own and its in pieces, but with my tungue and fingures feel some of my tooth and its a big piece . could that be why i can t feel half of my head. should i go back and have the rest exctracted or just wait for it to come out. its in deep and causes some pain compaired to the other three.

Go to the E.R.> It kind of sounds like Guillain Barre though. This is diagnosed through a spinal tap and EMG/NCV studies. It is kind of rare, but very possible. Have you had the flu or cold lately? This is how it starts. Let me know how it goes!
