Hello I recently got my teeth cleaned and filled, three days after i was experiencing a swollen tonsil . It got worse and was inflamed i could hardly swallowed and talk due to sever pain. I went to the doctor and she prescribed some antibiotics and cataflam for the pain .I didn't get the chance to fill that prescription due to circumstances. I had some antibiotics and i took them and the pocket of puss burst the following day and swallowing became much easier. I felt better for a few days ,however , I began to experience pain further down my throat and my soft palate now seems smaller than usual and sometimes you could see a little clear mucus hanging from it. Sometimes when i swallowed it feels like something is stuck at the back of my throat. i need your help please .

wisdom teeth extraction on left side lower jaw third molar last week friday- I had a wisdom tooth that was erupted very marginally. it caused infection so I was asked to remove it. the gum next to inner cheek was cut and the bone was drilled and the tooth was taken out whole. non dissolving stiches were put in to be removed in 7 days.its been 6 days now and as I am allergic to tettracyclin and peniccilin i was prescribed 1 panadiene thrice a day after meals and 1 cataflam 3 times a day.. the pain was manageable and I followed post operative instructions to the letter. there was swelling on the cheek and jaw that peaked on he 3/4th day and caused considerable pain when trying to sleep as the pressure when lying down was too much and pain radiated towards the ear. inside of the cheeks also was swollen and yellow scars appeared from rubbing on my teeth which were painful. now the swelling has gone down but i am in pain and the jawbone hurts as well as a small stiff lump on the jawline remains which is tender to touch and there are increases in the pain from time to time throughout the day. can move the mouth though slightly uncomfortable when eating.mostly inner cheek hurts and the lump on the jawbone is hurting alot. is it dry socket? but there are stiches so there is no hole in my gums. or an infection in the jaw bone? please help as sleepless nights have become the norm...

i am 27 years old bachelor. i never had any sexual intercourse till now.i masturbate frequently and i had hurted my epididymis an year ago. it started paining with infection and i have been taking treatment since then. the Surgeon had adviced me nothing was wrong and everything was fine. recently the doctor told me that no more treatment is needed and i do not have to visit him again. he prescribed me to take cataflam tablet whenever i fee pain. the pain is coming on the right side of testicles and the doctor told me one vein is still need to be recovered. having said that,he mentioned that he doesn't know what to do with that and i do not have to visit him again. also he does not advice any operation as everything is fine.

i took a second opinion from another doctor and he did some ultra scanning 6 months ago and all the results were normal.

I am worried now as my doctor said as he do not know how to treat this pain. please help me with your suggession as how should i proceed? the pain is not stopping at all and making me stressed despite it is not swelling very high.

many thanks..
