Q.

Paining vigoriously

When i was pregnant i started having toothache my dentist couldnt do anything until i gave birth the pain disappeared after a month the pain returned i went back to my dentist he took x-rays and told me theres nothing wrong with my teeth gave me antibiotics for the pain....it disappeared again. until recently it resurfaced i just been to the dentist for the 3rd time today even changed a dentist hoping the other one will decide to take out my aching tooth only to be told my teeth are healthy...but what about the pain i have its excrutiating i cant stand it. its like a shock wave that when it comes all my left side organs are left in pain (also a headache) whats wrong with me.

it sounds as though the pain may be neurogolical (related to a nerve). Toothache will not usually give rise to organ pain.
it may be best to see a neurologist.
