Hi, and thank you for coming to JustAnswer.com with your question.
There are a number of things that can feel like a toothache. Most of them (not surprisingly) are dental in nature.
Aside from tooth trauma / cracks / cavities / gum disease etc. other things that can cause a toothache is food stuck between your teeth, grinding your teeth, a problem with your jaw, and sinusitis
. Also it is possible to have an infection all the way at the root of your tooth which can cause pain.
I know that tooth pain is miserable -- I hope you feel better very soon.
For now it might be smart to get a second opinion, and meanwhile motrin (if you have no conditions that make you unable to take it) and alternating hot and cold packs might help.You can click on this link to see more causes of tooth pain.
If you have any follow-up questions please feel free to ask them.
