I hated going to the dentist because I couldn't seem to numb up with the anaesthetic. The dentist would argue telling me that after 3 injections if the anesthetic, I was just imagining the pain because according to him, it was impossible to feel anything.
How wrong was he!
I came across an article on the Internet of somwone who also had this problem and indeed suffered with EM too.
I've since been a study at the Liverpool Dental Hospital regarding my treatments and finding anaesthetics that actually work. They do have to work pretty fast because it doesn't last very long although given in seriously ridiculously large amounts - seeing the needle alone almost had me pass out with fear!!
I'll post the article I found. Now the dentist near to me keeps it on file for future reference as does the Liverpool dental hospital. Also they held a talk on this problem of not numbing up with all the trainee dentists and are keeping it on the course work from now on (YIPPEEE!!)
