Tooth Pain/Root Canal/Crown/Antibiotics Not Working/Severe Pain

Just over a year ago I had a root canal and a crown on the same tooth. On and off when I would floss there was a little blood and the crown felt a little 'off.' But I had no problem chewing.
Now these many months later out of nowhere-I wake in severe pain in THAT area.
Anything bothers it. I mean anything. I'm in severe pain. I know pain as I am a patient with spine issues. Anyway I try to wait it out to see if it's temporary, I was afterall raised this way but after two, then three days, I can't take it anymore and the Orajel is NOT doing its thing. I call the dentist. Gets me in pretty quick. Thank you! Xrays taken, takes a look, cannot see anything. Prescribes antibiotics. After two and a half days, thank God relief finally! That's Thursday. I'm so happy! Come Sunday oh dear Lord! The pain is back and it is twice as bad! My eyes are watering it's so bad and it hurts to open my mouth, I don't even care to eat or drink ANYTHING! This is much worse than giving birth naturally. I'd rather do that five times tahn deal with THIS! I'm on pain meds-allowed to up the dosage-it helps a 'little' I finally fall asleep around 2-3 am. The next morning it's tolerable. I'm not eating or drinking afraid I'll irritate whatever IT IS! Trying not to talk to my husband. He understands. (Likes it...haha ). So I'm using my regular back pain meds for THIS. Nothing because I have a pain DR. for my Spine problems. Anyway-currently I called the dentist-see them in three days. The antibiotics have NOT helped. Ten days taken as prescribed.

Hello, Loucy! How are you feeling? I am very sorry that you're so miserable.

Have you seen the dentist, yet? It sounds like you might have gotten an infection under the crown, which causes a lot of pressure to build up, because it can't drain.
