Thank you for visiting NetWellness. Unfortunately, it sounds like you may have a dry socket. It should get better in the next week or so. A question similar to yours has been previously addressed. The links below will connect you to that information. NetWellness may also have some general information available that you can access through our search feature. Feel free to write back if you still have questions or need an explanation.
