Patient :I had my wisdom teeth removed 3 days ago and I have had horrible headaches (possibly migraines) for the past two days. The ache starts in my right ear and goes across my temples to my left ear. I have been taking the pain meds the surgeon prescribed me and my mouth isn't in too much pain but my right ear and head are killing me. Is this possibly an ear infection or migraine and how do I make it stop? I have used peppermint and lavender essential oils in the past, could these help?
