I had dry sockets and I wanted to die. Its a complication caused by the clot prematurely dislodging from the socket post extraction. Narcotics have limited value because its nerve and bone associated pain. The vicodin es, Tylenol 3, motrin didn't help much. I would sleep for a moment and then I would wake up to pain with the same intensity. I went to the ER which didn't help. My dentist disappeared without any forwarding instructions for her patients. No other dentist wanted to come behind her. Clove oil helped me the night before but irritated my mouth something serious. I cried nonstop until it was packed which I had to have done every 3 days for about 10 days.
I wouldn't wish that pain on my worst enemy. I legit wanted someone to put me out of my misery.
