    Hi Ivy,


    Please let me say how sorry I am that I haven't answered your question yet. Somehow I didn't see it, for that I apologize. 


    First, I hope you are feeling better now.  But seeing as I've never had a tooth pulled, I really can't comment on this. My daughter did have her wisdom teeth out and if I remember correctly she did have a bit of a headache afterwards. Did you speak with the dentist who did the work to see if this is typical? That might be something to check in on.If you are still in pain, you may want to start there.


    It is good to know that your tests came back negative.  And as much as I'd like to tell you yes or no to your question about teeth being pulled and your headache, the only one who can give you an accurate diagnosis is your doctor. He/she will go over your symptoms with your take your medical history, your family's medical history and do a complete exam. Then they should be able to point you in the right direction regarding you head pain. 


    Good luck
