    Hi I’ve been having some trouble with my wisdom tooth every few months the pain will come back and cause problems the gum is a little swollen and I’ve been having pain in my jaw and ear. There’s also a stinging/sharp pain around tooth (like there is an ulcer on my gum by tooth?) it’s been giving me a sore throat aswell. The pain is easing of a little now and it’s not as swollen, but I know in a few months it will just come back again like it always does. Is this normal for a growing wisdom tooth?

    That wisdom tooth is stuck as far as it will come (vertically impacted). You will keep having problems with it, so don't continue to suffer unnecessarily. See a dentist, check for other wisdom teeth, and consider extraction.
