    This certainly sounds like a terrible situation, however, you can't pull the nerve out because it is connected to the rest of your nervous system. It would also be more painful then what you are experiencing now and it could cause permanent damage, which could also cause you pain the rest of your life.

    If you try and pull the nerve out, you will not only cause yourself even more pain, but most likely cause further complications to your dental health.

    You need to see a dentist immediately.  Call your dentist and tell them what's happening and they will get you an emergency appointment.  If you get an infection, it can too easily move deeper into the body or become much worse.

    No, no no! Depending on how old you are, pulling on a nerve can result in total loss of feeling in the area it is in. The one twisted in with the wisdom teeth can cause the entire lower part of your face to go numb, along with your bottom lip.

    Only if you want to experience a newer and more intense sensation of pain. Go see a dentist!

    Stop confabulating. The pain would not let you write the question.

    As for balooney - sure, just pull the nerve out; what are waiting for?
