Pain killers: Pain killers fon't cure problems, only mask the symptoms. Pain may be due to infected teeth and/or gums, infected sinus/throat/ear, trigeminal neuralgia, TMJ Dysfunction, etc. Start with your Dentist to evaluate for oral or peri-oral causes. If normal, the next stop would be your General Physician.
