Long story here. I'm now afraid of dentists...never was before. I had an onlay fall off and my original dentist messed up...too long of a story to go into. There was trauma and pain. I decided to do a root canal and cut my losses. AFter the root canal, my ear started to hurt and I got a bump near the tooth. The endodontist office said that meant the tooth was bad and needed to come out. There was also a bad crack in the tooth..,another long story. I went to a new dentist. He pulled the tooth, but also did a bone graft. He said this would prevent future problems like the teeth shifting and I could put an implant in later easier if I want or not. This is the far back right molar...I didn't want to put in an implant. The day after the extraction and graft, I developed a fever. I was already on antibiotics. He changed them. Didn't help. Changed them again. Didn't help. Then, was put on two together...didn't help. Then I got sickly...and my regular doctor told me to consider getting off of them after taking two CBCs and didn't show infection. I now still have a low grade fever. It's been 15 days. I'm scared. It's the same fever on or off antibiotics. I went to an ORal Surgeon for a second opinion. He said not to worry until it has been one month post op. He said the dental site looked good and there was no sign of infection in my mouth. He said to rest and gargle with salt water. I'm very very upset. My blood pressure went through the roof and my medicaiton had to be doubled. My regular doctor put me through the ringer with tests, all coming up ok. I am waiting for one more huge one that I took at the hospital...might be back tomorrow. I have had bouts of lupus, but oddly, right now it is in remission. Has anyone been through anything like this or heard of anything like this? HELP! I'm truly very frightened. My fevers are .99 to 100...not horrible...but after 15 days, I'm REALLY tired and getting weaker. Thanks.
