Hello all. I need some help and advice.
I went to get my wisdom teeth extracted last week because I had been experiencing some dull headaches everyday along with pain in my gums and inside of my ears. Well my OS told me that I was a high risk (10%) for *permanent* nerve damage that would never recover because my teeth are so close to this nerve. He also told me that teeth pain does not cause headaches or ear aches and to stop tagging along symptoms where they do not belong. So since he told me that I was such a high risk he sugfested I just keep an eye on it for now and come back to have them removed if I experience migraines, swelling or throw up.
Well I left because I decided I needed a second opinion about this risk and wasnt comfortable going through with the procedure at that time. Now I have never had a migraine before and did not think I would experienxe one but last night as I was driving home, I had a very sharp pain above my left eyebrow. It was very painful but I found that applying a lot of pressure helped some. I couldnt even open my eyes. Now this was very sudden and left suddenly too leaving me woth a very strange tingling feeling in my head I had never experienced before. It came and went just like this 3 more times before I turned the lights off for bed. And my right arm and leg muscles slightly spasmed which scared me. Opposite of head pain which was left side. The head pain subsided with the lights out but then I got extremely nauseated and was miserable. I was very hot and sweaty. I felt very strange. I fell asleep sitting up and when I woke up today ny head still felt tingly but it didnt hurt very much at all. I have no idea whats going on but I am guessing this is a migraine?
And if so, what should I do about my teeth?
The OS said I would have to immediately remove them despite the risks if I had these symptoms and I am honestly surprised because I did not think I would experience them! I am pretty anxious right now so I would really appreciate some second opinions and feedback!!!
