Wisdom teeth extracted, getting horrible headaches, throbbing by temples, jaw pressure, bad breath. Cause and cure?

I just got my wisdom teeth extracted 4 days ago I have been getting horrible headaches where my skull attatched to my spinal cord, also a dull throbbing by my temples and pressure for my jaw. i'm woozy and very dizzy, can't focus my eyes. i'm only taking half the dosage of pain meds (just Tylenol 3) but am taking antibiotics times a day. I have little to no appetite, and feel like throwing up almost constantly. I have bad breath, as well. I am 16, 5'3'' and 120 lbs.

Dentist 's  Response

Thanks for asking the query,

Wisdom tooth extraction is not a simple procedure and often associated with post operative complications like pain, swelling, prolonged numbness, head ache, difficulty in mouth opening.

You dont worry about the symptoms, follow the post operative instructions given by the Dentist properly, take complete course of antibiotics and analgesic, take lukewarm saline gargles, use antiseptic mouthwash gargles twice daily.

Maintain a good oral hygiene, avoid food lodgement in the area,

Avoid eating of hot and spicy food stuffs.

Take tab paracetomol 500mg twice for three days.

Hope this helps out.
