I checked with my PCP and got diagnosed with an ear infection, for
which I am on the 4th day of Zithromax
. He also gave me Vicodin for
the jaw pain. The ear pain has settled down; however, the jaw pain (can't even pinpoint the tooth anymore) is solidly in my left jaw, molar area, and up to the top jaw as well. The pain responds somewhat to aspirin and Vicodin, but comes back in an hour or so after medicating.
The pain itself feels like a vice grip coupled with a sharp throb.
