I had my top left wisdom tooth removed approximately 6 weeks ago and then my bottom left wisdom tooth removed by a surgeon 9 days ago. I keep experiencing strange really feint electric shock like feelings from around the extraction sites. It's not painful, it just feels odd. Any ideas what it may be?

maybe the bottom tooth was close to a nerve.
Ask the surgeon who removed it.
It may settle down with time.
don't eat/chew on that side.

Yes, the tooth was close to a nerve. I was referred to a specialist surgeon to have it extracted. I hope it isn't permanent. It's not a nice feeling!

I would speak to him asap.
In the meantime, avoid eating on that side.

Is the sensation all the time, or just occasionally and for how long?

It isn't constant. Just random twinges throughout the day. Tends to be worse in the afternoon for some reason. It started a couple of days after surgery

I believe they normally say give it 6 to 12 months for it to settle,
but see what the surgeon says.

I phoned the dentists where I had the tooth extracted today and all they said was 'I can see you are registered with a dentist who referred you so you need to ring them'. She didn't seem to care that it was an emergency dentist that referred me. Basically cos the surgeon doesn't work there on a permanent basis they have washed their hands of me.
I have registered with a dentist in the meantime but have to wait 6 weeks for my first appointment.

that's a very poor service.
I would of thought you'd be able to get an appointment with the surgeon, even if he is part-time there.
