Dry Socket Urg

So I was doing so good, well that was until 6am this morning I woke w/ horrible pain in my left side of my mouth, I drugged up & went back to sleep when I woke at 8am it was still killing me. Long story short I got to the dentist asap he packed it w/ this horrible tasting clover oil crud to leave there until Friday when he will remove it & the stitches. He said that when he cut & pulled that tooth, it did give him a lot of trouble coming out & bleeding so he believes blood may have gotten down there & dried up & caused an infection so I feel like I am back to square one. But I do know that I am starting to feel better & look forward to be able to be back to myself full throttle soon.

It was crazy bad, but I hope we caught it in time, b/c since he packed it, it has not hurt just still swollen. Thank you

I never thought this would happen to me b/c I heard you get dry socket from smoking or drinking through a straw b4 it heals. Well I don't smoke & have yet drinkin through a straw lol but it happens.
