So if the area has been recently xrayed it probably isn't a cavity or something that's causing nerve pain, but if the discomfort is that extreme you may need to see a specialist (endodontist) to determine if the pain is coming from that molar or if its from another source. Let me know what specifically I can answer or help you with so that you can get your pain under control.

The pain is coming and going. It's so severe that it's making me cry. I don't know if it's an infection or what. Nothing is swollen. Just sharp pain radiating in my jaw. I really don't want to go to the emergency room. I'm taking Tylenol and I can't take pain meds bc im pregnant and a recovering addict. I don't know what they would do in the ER
Dentist: Dr. Hegland, Dentist replied 1 year ago

Well if the pain is that severe, Tylenol probably isn't going to help. If you go to the ER at least they can do a brief exam, and they could numb the area (because that's safe when your pregnant). If the area is numb, at least you'll be comfortable until you can see a dentist or an endodontist.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
