Had my wisdom tooth took out today because it was infected now my throats appears to be swollen I am in so much pain . Do you think I should call911?

Steinbeck Sat 08-Apr-17 00:57:26

I would say yes OP, just because the infection could be spreading. Not wanting to alarm you of course ....but best to get some advice...

Steinbeck Sat 08-Apr-17 00:58:55

Even if it's just for some advice on pain relief.

Audreyhelp Sat 08-Apr-17 00:59:13

Thanks just feel pathetic I just can't swallow will ring

elephantoverthehill Sat 08-Apr-17 01:01:06

My ds had a tooth out today and was given a guide about what to do if? Have you been given something similar OP?

Audreyhelp Sat 08-Apr-17 01:04:25

Yes I have followed it to the letter just feel my breathing isn't right . My throats feels tight . Pain is unbearable

Audreyhelp Sat 08-Apr-17 01:07:09

I will give it twenty minutes .

elephantoverthehill Sat 08-Apr-17 01:10:02

I think you had better ring.

TallBlondie Sat 08-Apr-17 01:13:04

Go get it checked out by a physician, better safe then sorry. Take care of yourself.

QuestionableMouse Sat 08-Apr-17 01:14:38

Are you in the UK or US? (use of 911)

What pain relief have you tried?

Does sound like you need to be seen. If you're in the UK try 111? They can give you some good advice and steer you in the right direction.

Hope you're feeling better soon!

Audreyhelp Sat 08-Apr-17 01:17:12

Thanks uk I meant 111 I have took tramadol but not helping

Wayfarersonbaby Sat 08-Apr-17 01:29:12

I think you need to be seen. Is there a minor injuries or a walk-in centre near you?

TheElephantofSurprise Sat 08-Apr-17 01:30:58

Please ring now rather than later. A colleague's throat closed up due to an infection and she needed to be hospitalised for a while. It's an urgent thing.

Steinbeck Sat 08-Apr-17 13:15:02

How are you OP?

SorrelSoup Sat 08-Apr-17 13:17:01

Gosh, just seen this! Are you ok, op?

stopfuckingshoutingatme Sat 08-Apr-17 18:16:37

Call them or get a taxi to the nearest minor injuries unit OP for you might need antibiotics and extra pain relief

If you call the NHS they will let you know the right service for teeth xx there is an emergency tooth service my dentist told me xx

Hi just an update my throats doesn't feel so swollen I just feel like my whole mouth is aching I am on my second lot of antibiotics and just clock watching to see when I can take next painkillers.
I wouldn't wish this pain on my worst enemy. Thanks for your concern.

SorrelSoup Sat 08-Apr-17 20:09:11

Do you know what the problem is? Is it just your throat or for you have dry socket or something else?

picklemepopcorn Sat 08-Apr-17 20:13:31

There can be lots of swelling and bruising. Does the care sheet say you can gently rinse/gargle with salt water? It helps reduce swelling. Don't disturb the clot though!

And do you know how to use paracetamol and ibuprofen together?

Audreyhelp Sat 08-Apr-17 20:26:51

Don't think dry socket comes on this quick . Yes am taking ibrufon and paracetamol and gurgling with salt water and corosydone . My face tooth ear and throat are really hurting but throats doesn't feel like it's closing like it did last night.

picklemepopcorn Sat 08-Apr-17 20:31:40

Well, hopefully each day will be a bit better. That must have been frightening- lying down makes it worse, I think.

SorrelSoup Sat 08-Apr-17 20:32:03

I got dry socket within 24 hours as there was no clot. Painkillers do not work on that until about day 5, but it sounds like you have other things going on. Don't discount it though. If it is that then a dentist can pack it for you which really brings relief. I really feel for you. I've had 2 wisdom teeth out this year and it's been awful.

UnbornMortificado Sat 08-Apr-17 20:35:34

Feminax ultra is naproxen that's OTC it's stronger then ibrufen. Tramadol is pretty strong.

I would ring especially with the throat thing. Dry socket is supposed to be nasty.

@mrsmorton (hope you don't mind the tag) knows her dental stuff.

UnbornMortificado Sat 08-Apr-17 20:36:53

Sorry just seen your throats better, 111 can advise on medicine I use it at work for drug interaction queries.

Audreyhelp Sat 08-Apr-17 20:46:32

I have slept in a chair for a week now as I can't lay down. They gave me antibiotics last Sunday. Then took tooth out Friday .
I think last night the tramadol with ibrufon paracetamol and antibiotics was too many pills , especially as I can't eat much.
Praying I can sleep tonight and thus throbbing stops.
