Has anyone on here had this? Any advice? I tried google, but didn't come up with much of anything. I could really use some help.
My guess would be that it's your TMJ, and a combo of the infection and having to open your mouth wide at the dentist's office messed it up.
When my jaw has locked up before, I've been prescribed Naproxin (what's in Aleve) and that has worked (sometimes.)
Either way, I wouldn't freak out too bad.
Hopefully by this time tomorrow your pain will not be near as severe and you will be able to open your mouth all the way. If it gets worse instead of better, call your dentist!
It does go away after a few days. I hope you feel better soon. Oh and look up the drug in question just to be sure; in my experience docs will often say not to take while nursing as a CYA thing when it might be ok to do so.

I have had the same issue and to fight infection and relieve the pain make a mouth rinse of 1 cup of warm water, 1 Tablespoon of sea salt or table salt and 1 capsule of Goldenseal-opened and added to water. Stir until dissolved and then swoosh around the inside of your mouth twice a day. In addition, take 3 echinacea daily until swelling and pain are gone. Hope you are feeling better.
