Oh, I feel your pain. I've been through that several times with my wisdom teeth. The ONLY thing that really worked for me when I had that was Advil. Try to limit yourself to only one pill every 8 - 10 hours. It works, but if you take too much it will upset your stomach. The pain normally will go away, without having to take anymore medication, in about 3 days. I also found that slurping around Jack Daniels Whiskey in your mouth for a little bit helps numb the pain. My EMT friend told me to do that and it actually helped a little. Any kind of alcohol will temporarily help numb the pain, but don't drink the alcohol and take the advil at the same time though. I hope you feel better. Learn more:
