story time: my boyfriend had a cavity on a tooth toward the back of his mouth. he got the tooth with the cavity pulled about a month ago. after getting the tooth pulled, he suffered from the normal pain where the tooth had been as well as pain in his tongue. this pain went away several days after the tooth was pulled. about a week after that, he came to visit me (we live 2 hours apart). when he came to visit, we made out. later that day after he had returned home, the pain in his tongue came back. it has been back for the past 2 weeks. he says it feels like someone is sticking a pin in it, but there is nothing visibly wrong with it.
