I have been to the dentist about 2 years ago for root canal etc with no problems whatsoever. I hadnt been for a checkup in all that time until 2 months ago, I got to have one wisdom removed as well as 2 root canals. I have absolutely no fear of needles or dentists, few weeks ago he injected anaesthetic into my gum and I instantly felt strange like cloudy feeling in my head like slightly confused, then my hands started to shake and heartbeat picked up pace. They sent me to the waiting room for it to kick in, for 5 minutes I was holding my phone and try take my mind off it as maybe other people were looking as my hands were shaking. It wasnt a paranoid feeling or anxious feeling. I told the dentist and he just laughed it off. I went back a week later and the same feeling. It last for 5 mins then the shaking stops and my hearbeat seems to come back down. I went to a new dentist and same thing. So... i sat down and told my dentist properly everythinh to what happened. He said its the adrenaline in the anaesthetic. So he gave me one without adrenaline and i didnt get any shaking. I thought this was great. So back to the dentist to and he had to inject 3 syringes full of non adrenaline anaesthetic to numb my tooth as non adrenaline is not as effective as adrenaline anaesthetic. I felt strange after the second and even more strange after the third injection. I felt my body twitching and felt an overwhelming feeling like I was coming up on some drug. I had to stop the dentist and sit up to get my bearing. I have to go back for another root canal and worse of all the wisdom tooth removal which im told needs about 2-3 adrenaline injections. I am worrried i may have a reaction and something could happen. I dont understand I have never had a problem with anaesthetic, now all of a sudden its reacting with me or maybe tolerance change to it. I am allergic to cyclizine which is anti nausea after operations.
has anyone experienced this? I thought adrenaline was natural maybe this is normal to shake after adrenalin anaesthetic but then again I dont know anyone its happened to. Maybe I am sensitive or something. I was told it was me working myself up and bring on this all in my head, thats not true i know my own body and know the differnce between a feeling of anxiety to a a feeling of something injected into me.
Could I go for an allergy test? I called a couple of private health allergy testing centres and nobody does one for anaesthetic? strange.
