Hi, I am 23, female from Pakistan


Q: Hi, I am 23, female from Pakistan. I got a toothache in my molar Friday evening. The pain was so severe that even my ear, throat and right side of Head started to ache. The dentist said my molar was infected and he proposed a root canal treatment, which he scheduled on the next day. For relieving pain, he advised me to take Sanid (Ribuprofen) tablet and if pain persists, take two instead of one tablet. In addition, he prescribed me the antibiotic Redox and Riam. He also said that if pain continues even after taking Sanid, go for Dicloran injection. I took two Sanid tablets, one ridox and one riam tablet each. The pain continued with Same magnitude. My aunt is a Dr. She advised me to take Gabil tablet. According to her, it relieves the pain in nerves. I took it at midnight. The pain fortunately reduced. At dawn, my aunt injected me Dicloran so to completely relieve the pain in Tooth. The injection worked and I finally slept. At 8 a.m, I woke up with pain in my heart. It was like a pressure all over my chest and my stomach. I thought maybe it was gas building up. I took green tea with lemon but no relief. I got my pulse and b.p checked. It was all normal. I also had acidity because of taking so many medicines altogether so just before my root canal treatment, I took Risek 40 to reduce acidity and Sanid again as dentist asked me to take it before starting root canal. Risek did help me to reduce the burning in Chest but the pain in heart persisted. After Root canal, I got rid of toothache. The pain in Heart was like as if somebody is squeezing my heart, it was that much severe. Sometimes it disappeared. Sometimes, it rose again so rise and fall continued until tonight. I got myself checked at Hospital. The Dr said it's just the muscular pain. My E.C.G was normal. He prescribed me to take Tramal injection. I refused to take any more injections. So he asked me to take the oral tablet of Tramal. It's supposed to work as it is an analgesic agent, but here I am writing all this long story with pain in my heart. Please, I want relief.
