I had a tooth extraction 2 days ago and am experiencing severe pain, swelling, nausea and head spins. Should I seek out a doctor ?

In brief: Complications

Certainly does sound like you're suffering from potential complications of that tooth extraction such as a possible infection doesn't it? I might first try call the dentist back who you saw.
They may want to take another look at the extraction site to see if there's something they can do before seeing a non-dental MD. Questions? www.healthtap.com/drsaghafi Key Code: PDXFNR
