You have my sympathy. Whoever called them wisdom teeth anyway?
The pain is going to go away. I take whatever medicine the doctor suggested and remind myself how tough I am. And then I usually try and sleep it off.

Is the pain you described from the removal of them, or are they there and causing an unholy amount of trouble in your mouth?

If you haven't had them out yet, make sure that you do. They will only cause more and more pain and suffering.

If its pain from the removal surgery, just bear with it for a little while longer. It should go away well within a week, a week and a half tops.

In fact, I don't remember anything about the pain when they took mine out. All I remembered is that the pain medication they gave me made me loopy and dizzy as can be and nauseous to boot. I really hated that stuff, and stopped taking it only a couple of days after the surgery. It wasn't worth it to me to be sick to my stomach all the time.

I had my two bottom ones out at different times. Still have the top two. I would recommend getting the surgery sometime this summer, especially since you'll be going back to school in the fall (right?)

Really, having one out isn't generally that big of a deal, and for me, having a pain just in my mouth for a few days (after surgery) was much better than a pain in my mouth, head, neck, and back all at the same time (caused from the tooth itself).

Of course, you or your parents will have to make the call about when it's time. I agree with others, though: Don't let it go on for too long; it's just not worth it!

If you can take aspirin, place a small dose aspirin between the tooth and its' mate and let it slowly dissolve. This should help.

Mine didn't hurt, and I only had two-on the bottom (top ones never formed). However, they were coming in in such a way as to mess up my lovley teeth the folks paid large dollars to have straightened, so the decision was made to pull them.

It so happens that about a month before the scheduled tooth pulling, I got insecticide poisoning. I was working in a big drug store stacking bottles of malathion on a shelf, when it collapsed and all the bottles crashed to the floor, soaking my leather shoes and socks with the stuff. I was no gardener and only 18, so I was mopping it up with paper towels. Just as I noticed that it was making the glue from the floor tile bubble, the lady from the camera department came by and gasped in horror. "Go home and shower that stuff off immediately!," she shrieked. So I did, feeling slightly headache-y.

The next morning when I woke up, I could hardly lift my head off the pillow and weakly croaked out to my parents to come help me. I got taken to the ER for blood samples. The family doctor told us that malathion was related to nerve gas used in WWI and that if you got enough exposure it would paralyze your respiratory muscles and you stopped breathing. In my case, it interfered with the nerve transmission in my muscles just enough to make me feel like a weak little old lady. I had to have my blood monitored weekly for about a month, and even trying to lift a glass of milk to drink was a huge effort! I spent the month sunbathing in the garden, reading, and ordering my little brother to go get me things. Guess who doesn't use any insecticide in the garden to this day?

Anyhoo, when the time came to get my wisdom teeth out, my worry wart mom called the surgeon and told him about the malathion incident. "Jeez, I'm glad you told me," was his response. "If I had put her under with sodium pentothal, she might have stopped BREATHING!" Thanks, Mom!

The tooth-pulling was therefore postponed. When it did occur, it went off without a hitch, in fact, it didn't really hurt at ALL! I went out that night with friends and stupidly ate tortilla chips and salsa. No swelling, nothing. However, 2 weeks later I developed a "dry socket" (tooth hole didn't heal over) and that hurt like stink. Nothing a little vicodin and antibiotics couldn't cure.
That's my wisdom tooth tale, hopefully yours won't be quite as arduous.
