I had my top right wisdom tooth pulled 48hours ago and my other teeth away from the one pulled hurt pretty bad. Why? Is this normal?

In brief: Pain

Pain is never "normal," but may just be indicative of healing surgery.
Pain can be referred to any location along an affected nerve's length. Call the Dentist or specialist Oral Surgeon who treated you. Post operative care is part of the treatment process. He/she may or may want to see you, or may change your post-op Meds.

In brief: Post extraction pain

May be referred or radiating pain and may or may not be within normal limits following wisdom tooth extraction.
Could also be something else. I recommend you call the dentist who saw you and discuss your symptoms and concerns.
