removed impacted wisdoms (8 Day later and alot of PAIN)

Last week wednesday i removed 3 impacted teeth, 2 wisdom teeth and 1 normal. Since saturday i have had severe pain on the right hand side lower jaw with the pain extending to the back of my ear. The pain is so bad that i cant even sleep at night. I ave also been taking Miprodol for pain relief which is not helping much. It is now 8 days since i had the teeth removed and i am still suffering with so much pain on the right side where the 2 teeth were removed. Please help. I cant understand why there is so much pain

The pain from impacted wisdom teeht removal can last for 10-14 days post op.
The teeth were probably lying very close to the nerve- that is the reason for the pain extending to the neck.
Has your surgeon scheduled a follow up appointment for you some time soon. There is also a chance of post op infection.
