    irritated gums

    I have sensitive teeth, I purchased Sensodyne toothpaste and used it for four days, my gums were inflamed and I had pain in my teeth, so I discontinued. I wrote the company and they said the product is not for everyone. But that was before Halloween, I still have gum irritation on the lower right hand side of my mouth, and now it's effecting the nerves on the side of my head and up over my right eye. I've applied ice packs and anbesol to the gum area. I also took Tylenol, it took over two hours for the pain to recede. It seems when I eat my dinner it flares up. I do not have dental on my medicare program and can't afford to go to a dentist. Is there anything else I can do to rectify my problem? Thank you for your time.
