In brief: See your dentist

No it is not normal to keep having pain after 2 month, the pain could be coming from a different tooth or from the extraction site or even form the joint.
Get it checked out by the surgeon who did the wisdom teeth as well, if different from your GP.

In brief: See your dentist

Tooth extraction is a surgical procedure and is not completely risk-free.
Pain, swelling and infection following surgery is usually at its worst 24 – 48 hours after surgery. After that it should subside more and more every day and after 7 days stop. Pain after 7 days is a serious issue. See your dentist/surgeon for post-op appointment and treatment. Take care.

In brief: Not normal

No two people heal at same rate, but should be feeling better by now.
Have you returned to the treating Dentist or Oral Surgeon for a pet surgical evaluation? Please make an appointment.
