Oral Surgery/Tooth Extraction and Headache

I have the exact same symptoms! I have been to the Neurologist, ER and urgent care thinking it was a severe migraine.  When no treatment has worked, I finally realized it may be from a double tooth extraction 2 weeks ago.  Waiting on the surgeon to call me back.  I do have muscle relaxers so will try that when I get home.  How long until there is relief though?

I don't believe any dentists. I never had a headache or migrainesomething in my life. I had my upper tooth pulled, not wisdom tooth, & instantly, migraine, so bad, it's constantly everyday. My dentist says it's not related to my tooth being pulled, yet, I never had a migraine until my tooth was pulled. After 8 months, neurologistso have no idea, now I'm headed to Mayo Clinic. I just want you to know, your not alone
