See your doctor. : This is not normal, you should see the doctor or oral surgeon who removed the wisdom teeth immediately to diagnose the problem.

Go back: This is not normal. I would suggest you go back to the dentist that did the extraction.

This is too long to still have residuals in from an extraction. Please return to the dentist or surgeon who removed your wisdom teeth for an evaluation

Not normal: What you describe is not normal 3 weeks after surgery. You should return to your surgeon for evaluation and he can help you treat the problem.
