Thank you for the input.

Pain on the right side of the face along with toothache can arise from tooth or gum problem like gingivitis or infection. When you are not feeling any improvement with tylenol, I think you should get it examined by doctor. Your blood pressure is also on the rise which needs to be checked. High blood pressure can cause headache. Sometimes heart pain can be referred to the jaw region. An EKG can be taken if doctor thinks necessary.

Any query, please feel free to ask.

I knew dental problem can cause headche, but today i went thru Nuclear stress test at Trilluim health centre with cardiologist, B.P. was fine then and after the test. headche started in evening, I have made dentist appoint ment this after noon
Is it B.P is high for the heart patien to stay like this for 10-12 hours?, I forgot to mention that I have taken AMPICILIN 500 mg 4 times in last 20 hours

Is it worth it to visit to walk in clinic , no emergency hospital

High BP puts extra load on the heart or its left ventricle. But it is confusing as you had normal blood pressure & stress test in the morning. You can visit walk in clinic.
