i had three replacement fillings done, each time my mouth was open for several hours. This went on for three Friday's in a row. Afterwards I developed pain in my mouth when I bite into anytime of food, even chicken salad. I went back and forth to the dentist and they filed my teeth down a bit more, put me on an antibiotic in case I had an infection and threw his hands up after that. the symptoms kept getting worse so I went back to my primary care dr and was told I had a double ear infection and a sinus infection. AFter three weeks of meds the pain in my ear is still there. I was referred to an ent and have been treated with physical therapy, meds and heat compresses. I'm working if in fact something else could have happened and what I can do about what happened. does this sound right?
