Sorry for the off topic question, just wanted a second opinion to avoid looking like an idiot I have an infection in my tooth/gum. I started antibiotics last night but i am worried about how quickly the infection is spreading, I woke up this morning with the whole gum swollen with bits going black (yuck i'm sorry i know) my jaw, ear neck, sinus and head are all throbbing. I am in agony and just want to cry. should I just rest and toughen up or go to the hospital???
