Dying of pain.

Hi Doc.
About six months ago I had really bad tooth pain after baby was born. The dentist pulled one of my back teeth(verstand tand). Since this morning I've had the same kind of pain. Could it be the other side's tooth? I also went to a dentist before that complaining about a whole in my tooth. She said she couldn't see it and did nothing. Could it be that?
I will go to the dentist, but we're not on medical aid so I have to wait till the end of the month. Is there anything I can do about the pain in the meantime. Panados and Disprin just isn't enough.

Yes it could very well be the wisdom tooth on the other side. It could also be the tooth your were complaining of. Did they take an x-ray? I dont advise taking pain killers for another 10 days- see a dentist even if it is at the state clinics.
