A 34-year-old member asked:

Wisdom tooth removal, is stinging pain afterwards a normal after effect?

Stinging pain: Depending on how long ago the tooth was removed... This could be normal. Otherwise, you might be getting infection starting, or the nerve may have been traumatized, which can happen in wisdom teeth removal. Either way you need to go back to the dentist who did the extraction to examine you. Good luck!
