I had a root canal last Wednesday and I’m still in so much pain. I know it was in a bad tooth - it was the very last one in the back of your mouth - and it’s right on the jaw hinge.

The endodontist is blaming it on my auto-immune disease, but really I had eight crowns all at once (including a root canal) and I didn’t have this kind of pain. It hurts to even touch the tooth.

I don’t have a fever, so I don’t think it’s infected. But am I crazy for being worried about this?

I would give anything to be one of those people with good teeth.
