I've tried the following remedies since the extraction 2 weeks ago
Right after the tooth extraction, I took Arnica 200c, Ledum200, Hypericum 200 phosphorus 200 staphysagria 200, one after the other repeated 5 times each. It helped for stop bleeding and nausea from having the injections. After those remedies, the type of pain has changed from very sharp neuralgic pain to something deeper and almost like bone pain so I started to take Ruta 30c and 200 but didn't help at all.
Other remedies are Symphytum 30, 200, Arsenicum 30, 200, Lachesis 200, Pyrogen 200, Heper sulph 30, 200, Sulphur 30, 200, Calendula 6, 30, 200, Plantago tincture, Echinacea tincture within 2 weeks and nothing is working. I took those remedies for at least 5 doses to make sure if they do anything but nothing has worked so far.
I'm also gargling with calendula tincture and warm saltwater.

28.Any other things which you think it make you unique from others ..
Not sure.

Thank you for your help but I'm afraid that I've already tried Hecla lava ( from 3x to 1M) with no success. I also had tried merc 6, 12, 30, 200 c and merc-cy 30, 200c without any success. I've been taking silica 6x twice daily and calc f and calc phos 6x twice daily but I haven't noticed any change. I'm in severe pain but I'm not taking any meds not even pain killer as I believe homeopathy can help and I just need to find the right remedy!
Do you have any other suggestions? Thank you again for taking the time.

I've already tried Hepar sulphur 6c, 12c, 30c and 200c but no matter which potency I tried, it just doesn't do anything! And it's not the right remedy. I know the right remedy will give me a relief without waiting for a long time as this is an acute case.

In addition to the remedies you've tried as listed in your first thread and subsequent threads,kindly pen down other remedies you have taken.

If you haven't tried BELLADONNA 30,have it three times.

Sir, I've tried every possible remedy in the past 2 weeks.
It started with Arnica and it worked great for swelling and bleeding right after the extraction.
Then Belladonna 200c for the pain and it worked great for the first week then stopped working even after changing the potency to 1M and 30c.200c seems to work the best and I took it for at least 15 doses or more as the pain was maximum of 10 out of 10. After belladonna the intensity of the pain has decreased around 5 out of 10 but it's still very painful.
After that, I tried Hecla lava, gunpowder, sulphur, hear sulph, nitric acid pulsatilla, phosphorus, phosphoric acid, kreosotum, mercurius, merc-cy, merc- I- f, ledum, staphsagria, Ruta, thus tox silica, calc carb, calc phos, calc flouricum, syphlinum, psorinum, Nux vomica and Camphor (I tried to antidote some of the remedies) all in 30c, and 200c repeated at least 3-4 doses.
Now if I take a wrong remedy, the pain increases to the maximum. This is the result of taking too many remedies, but what can I do? I'm in pain and I want to get relief from this suffering.
So please suggest the right remedy. I have no more room for Trial so it has to be the correct remedy.

So I stopped taking more remedies today but just took cell salts ( silica 6x, calc-p, calc-f) but the pain increased so much right after taking those so not even going to take cell salts anymore as I'm scared to have even more pain. So please please find the right remedy for me. Thank you!

Sir, Belladonna does not work anymore and I've also tried 30c and1m, but it just doesn't work.
Also, the icy cold water or warm/hot drinks does not change the intensity of the pain. (I've already tried those)

HELP!!!! please!!!

I just took a dose of Staphysagria 30 and the pain has increased to the maximum of 10 out of 10!!

Just had a very strong black coffee and took Camphor 200 trying to antidote the effect of staphysagria but I'm so much in pain!!!

Now, what should I do????
Saya 2 years ago
Repeat camphor.

Apply potash alum.

More symptoms required now as the best selected remedies only aggravating the pain.

Chamomilla is ruled out as there is aggravation from warm drinks or entering warm room.You may like to study the remedy.F

After having 5 doses of camphor I'm still in severe pain.

I created a new post looking for other suggestions.

Thanks for your time.
