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!

the problem is i've never been heavily sedated, and idk how it would affect me with my unique blood and mental chemistry. I am thankfully on summer now and i'll still be doing senior year next year and a few college courses

You don't have to be heavily sedated. They can do a local, which is what I had done. In fact, I had to have a local because at the time, there was no one to drive me home. You should ask your surgeon if that's an option for you. . . . and if he or she says no, find a different surgeon!!

The local for me doesn't last long enough, heck when i had a root canal done on one of my molars I ended up feeling most of the pain from the root canal
