    What does dry socket feel like?

    I can't tell if I have one (which may be a good sign). Is the pain SUPER intense? I woke up this morning with pretty bad pain, but it seems to have mostly gone away. Called my dentist and did some research, but actual experiences may be helpful too. Anyone?

    I never had it.

    But from what I've been told you'll know it if you get it. Its supposed to be absolute agony.

    If you do have it...I hope you like the taste of cloves.

    My friend got it when he got his wisdom teeth removed and said it hurt like crazy. He said he was eating a piece of bread and it touched it...he got real red, started sweating, and almost passed out.

    Good to know. I don't think I have it. I just freaked out a bit cuz I woke up with pretty bad pain. I must have banged my mouth or clenched wrong while sleeping. The pain is almost non existant now. But I guess time will tell. I'm praying I don't get one. I'm supposed to go to Seattle next friday to visit my brother. It would really suck if my condition worsened. I was hoping all of this would be taken care of by then.

    If it is a dry socket, the pain wouldn't have gone away. I had a dry socket after getting a tooth pulled and it was non-stop pain until the dentist took care of it. So if the pain went away that's a good sign.
