Hi Yuni Aswandi,
Continuing from several topics with the other HealthReplies.com team of doctors regarding the condition you are experiencing. If an examination has been carried out and given treatment, it is better to continue to follow the treatment recommendations from the doctor who treats you.
As in the previous discussion regarding antibiotics and pain medications in this discussion, the drugs that have been given, especially antibiotics, of course have gone through the doctor's calculations, both the dose and the duration of administration, so they should still be consumed until they run out and don't buy them on their own initiative. Meanwhile, painkillers can be consumed intermittently and only when pain occurs because pain medications often cause stomach upset.
If later after treatment the pain persists and does not decrease, it may be possible to do other treatments, such as going back to the dentist and an ENT specialist. You also need to be more relaxed and reduce anxiety and stress because it is not uncommon for anxiety or restlessness of the mind to indirectly cause symptoms in physical conditions or called psychosomatic. Also try to find out or learn when or why the pain occurs and what can reduce it so that pain can be prevented and managed.
