See a dentist ASAP: Toothaches are a sign that something is wrong. Very soon the pain will become unbearable. Call for an emergency appointment NOW.

Yes: There is truly a lot of variables in this question - i.e. How much does the child use a pacy of suck their thumb per day, but for the most part these habits are devastating to teeth. Not only do I see this every day in my office, but I have a child who sucks her thumb and see the devastation to her teeth every day.

See below: Assuming you did not have any oral or dental trauma, he is probably testing your cranial nerves which could be affected by head injury.

I took 5 aleves (naproxen) and I am having severe nausea. Is this normal?

TOO MANY: 5 Aleve (naproxen) at the same time? That is too much. The package says take 1 pill up to 2 times a day. Never take more than the label says unless your doctor says it is ok. 5 alave can make you feel nausea. This is why they print how many to take safely on the labels.
