Local anesthetic warning...

Postby Ange » Thu Aug 27, 2009 6:37 pm

Hi all...

I went into hosp on Monday to have a wisdom tooth out. I've had local jabs before, and never bothered. Ok, they are a bit unpleasent, but not the worst thing I've had.

Anyway, first jab and after a couple of minutes I felt faint, and heart racing. The second jab and I was faint again, heart racing and shaking a bit.

The extraction was done, and I sat for a while, and then all hell broke loose.

My BP plunged to 103, and I was taken to a recovery room. I was shaking so much the bed shook too. I was monitored etc, and ended up in there for 2 hours while they got me sorted out.

The doc said it was a reaction to the adrenaline in the local anesthetic. Now I don't know if this is the Hypothyroidism side of me, or the Fybro.

So beware of anything like this if you have to have a jab at the dentist...

I am ok at the dentist thankfully.
But very very tired after and i have to go and get a tooth out either next friday or the next friday - not lookin forward to it as i am a bit nervous at the dentist.

Come to think of it, last time i had a general i had a terrible migraine after and they sedated me for a while till it passed.
But i cant take morphine or any derivative as i take vertigo.

I too had a bad reaction, my dentist says its the adrenalin, i now have injections without it in and i am fine. Just a word of warning, injections without adrenalin take longer to work, eg i had a tooth out last week, had injection 40 minutes before i had my tooth out, and was fine.

Ok from the local, but have some nerve pain up my face that I hope will go as things settle....

I put the same post on Thyriod Uk, and there have been a lot of replys to say that they have the same problems....so it seems it might be a thyroid thing more than a Fybro one.

I do know that there can be adrenal problems with the Thyroid....

Anyway....onward and upwards eh....:):)

I wonder why they put adrenaline in local anesthetics ? I would have thought a sedative would be better.

Hi all

Although I am not in the medical profession I can almost certainly say it's likely a couple of things added together ...

Anxiety coupled with the relief that the procedure is over can cause a massive adrenaline rush - its happened to me a few times :oops: Before I had my occipital nerve block injections I was asked if I was worried , no I said - bring it on ! :roll:

After it was all done I was surrounded by staff in the theatre when I decided to jump up and ' shout hallelujah its a miracle , my pain has gone ' !!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

......... adrenaline rush and Dave on floor looking a tad daft surrounded by the medical team from ET :oops: Its a our bodies way of protecting us and sometimes works overtime . lol
