I saw my local doctor 3-4 months ago (Bloods normal at the time). From the dentist I have recently had Amoxicillin 500mg, and now Erythromycin 250mg as the first was only helping a little. The socket is taking a while to settle down, but the general area has improved since extraction.
I take 1 Omeprazole 20mg a day for acid reflux, nothing else.
Thank you for your prompt reply. I'll certainly try the water and lemons. I get a dry mouth quite a lot, so the salivary gland thing seems very possible. However, what about the initial mental absences and the continuing 'head not quite right' feeling? I put that down to the dental infection, but now that the tooth is out I'm not so sure.
