Please help - extraction over 2 weeks ago

Aug 11, 2016

I had an upper molar extracted 17 days ago, I had to go back two days later because I had a bad taste in mouth, he cleaned it out and put that tobacco looking stuff in it and stitched it up, about 5 days later I had the stitched removed because they were getting manky.. anyway I'm now in kinda constant dull pain and my maxilla bone right at the top of my mouth above the main molar is large and hurts so bad especially to touch, my dentist said its just because of the tooth extraction but I don't know, has anyone else had to deal with this? I'm scared it's a bone infection because I'm starting to feel unwell and I just feel like it's getting worse and I don't know what to do my dentist doesn't seem concerned.

I grind my teeth in my sleep, and over the course of the extraction I've had amoxicillin and metronidazole.
