Had tooth extraction due to abcess is felling light headed a day after ok and how many days after is it ok.?

Various causes: Feeling light headed is not a symptom related to either an abscess or an extraction. It would be more related to pain medication you might be taking, low blood sugar from not eating, or a psychological effect.

Seizure medications like gabapentin, carbamezapine and valproic acid help. You may need more than one type of medication and sometimes you find out what works only by trial and error. See a neurologist for treatment. ...Read more

It doesn't sound like there is anything to be concerned about. However, we can't determine this over the internet, so contact your own dentist for your peace of mind. ...Read more
