hello, my upper right second molar is aching. Was told it was coming from my wisdom tooth next to it so I had it removed 11 days ago but the pain is still there. Any clue? X-ray attached. Thanks

It could be early days yet, and the back surface of the 2nd molar will be exposed to the cold, sweet, sour things you eat. Try a desensitising toothpaste. Also, I don't diagnose just off a single Xray like that - I'd like to see bottom teeth as well. The source of pain can be elusive.

Do you have more pronounced pain bending over and going Up & Downstairs? If so, you may have sinus pain which feels like tooth pain.

Many years ago, I had an upper molar case that I felt was not a tooth but a sinus problem. The patient saw me 3 times and I didn't do the root canal she requested. She returned for a 4th visit saying her Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor said her pain was not a sinus problem. I accessed her molar root canal and found it bleeding moderately (healthy pulp) and finished the job. She returned a few days later stating she is having the exact same pain. She went to another Ear, Nose, & Throat doctor who ordered images and sure enough, it was a sinus problem.
