After My Tooth Was Extracted I Suffered From Severe Pain Like Lightning Bolts. What Do You Think This Is?

Hello Dr Patel. I had a hole in my tooth and one day I got severe pain like lighting bolts. It came back 3 times. This pain is the worst pain I have ever experienced in my life. I have had the tooth removed but I am scared it could be trigeminal neuralgia. The pain was so bad that I cried. I asked the dentist about this pain but I am not convinced they really understood the amount of pain I had suffered. I have not eaten anything really substantial for 3 weeks now and I am losing weight. I cant go anywhere on my own for fear of this pain. I had my tooth taken out and have not had it since. I am still not convinced it has gone though because it only happened 3 times in 4 weeks. What do you think this is? Thank you for helping in advance.
Hello and thank you for your enquiry. It is most likely that the cause of the pain was the tooth but the area will still need time to heal and any infection left will need to be cleaned up by your body. If you continue to suffer from these symptoms go and see your dentist. If you don’t feel like you are receiving a satisfactory answer try to seek a second opinion. I hope this helps. Kind regards, Dr Riten Patel.
