Hallo. I need your help (please).

I had a root canal done on wednesday. "It will be sore for a few days" says dentist. well, anaesthetic wore off soon enough and since then have been in agony, pain is constant,(though not worse with cold, which Dr Google says is a good thing) and feels like it is shooting out of my eye socket and down my neck. Haven't slept. Have taken ibuprophen cycled two hourly with co-codamol- not touched the pain. Have tried hot pack.
What now?? Am just off to pharmacist, but what do I ask for? (bottle of whiskey? oil of cloves?). Help me!
