Hi all,\n\nSo about a month+ ago, I started having small pain->terrible pain in the left bottom gum where my wisdom toothused to be (got my wisdoms out about 3 months ago). When it got to bigger pain, it moved on to my entire left jaw so I thought it was something in my jaw. Went to the dentist, took some antibiotics, it got better but didn't heal completely and then some white bumps and this gross colored infection circle thing started to form around my last/back tooth. Went to the dentists who gave me some type of cleaning on the gross colored thing and told me to go to the bigger hospital dentist bc they couldn't do anything more besides give me antibiotics. Taking the antibiotics, I went to a big hospital dentist and 2 of the dentists there couldn't figure out what was wrong. Told me to come back in 2 weeks if after taking more antibiotics it didn't heal so I could take a CT scan of the area (and pay a lot of money). \nSo [B]NOW/CURRENT SITUATION/CURRENT SYMPTOMS[/B]- Finished antibiotics, the white bumps and redness around my back tooth are gone, but there's a new gum-colored bump forming behind that tooth/where my wisdom teeth used to be. I also feel discomfort in general, pain after I eat, and I think the discomfort/pain stretch to my left chin area (i can point to a specific area) as well as my left jaw as I keep wanting to crack my jaw....\n\ndoes anyone know what these symptoms are??? cyst? infection? gingivitis? foreign body? tumor? cancer???\nI'm currently using listerine twice a day and washing with salt water as much as I can but it's hard to do it so often because of work :(\n\nthanks for any inputs!!!
