Sorry to hear that Sometimes the pain can persist for 5 to 7 days after a difficult wisdom tooth extraction but you should be experiencing less pain with time .
it would be advisable to have a word with your treating surgeon..a clinical examination would be necessary but an x ray may not necessarily reveal anything significant.
Please consult a dentist / surgeon to rule out a dry socket... That's what can give significant pain even after a few days .
