Inflammation from Novacain?

I have been going in for some repair on old cracked molars. Every time I get Novacaine shots, I get nerve inflammationi that lasts for a few days. Once the dentist gave me a Motrin 800 after grinding away and I didn't get the inflammation. Yesterday, I had an overlay put on and didn't take the Motrin. Today, the side of my face hurts and the nerves feel inflamed. Anybody have this experience with the dentist? Raven

Thanks, JeanneRoz, I also

Thanks, JeanneRoz, I also get symptoms of low blood sugar from Novacaine shots. Thanks for the suggestion. I didn't know there was another type of Novacaine. Raven

I had oral surgery last

I had oral surgery last tues and I hyperventilated in the chair. I was sobbing uncontrollably and my entire body became so tight it hurt. I have major reactions to novacaine and dread it. The actual procedure was no problem, just the novacaine. After the procedure I am starving all the time, moody, and very irritable. I think maybe it could be that my liver detox cycle cannot handle it. (methylation) kc
dxi msi 1996. started capi 10/05. Started with tinii pulses switched to flagyli pulses. Now almost on continous 500mg flagyl but do need breaks. On minoi 100mg/day biaxin 1000mg day and NACi 600mg. ldni 2.0mg.

Perhaps you should have

Perhaps you should have asked them to use non-epinephrine novacain.  I learned about it the hard way as well.  Sorry you had to experience this episode as they are not fun.  I (within the last 6 months) had most of my amalgams removed and this is what my dentist used... I had no problems.

Well, I guess I must have

Well, I guess I must have been in the process of coming down with an infection. Friday morning I felt a respiratory infection coming on. Perhaps this is a part of the inflammationi but the next day after the dentist it was gone. Lots of sick sneezing and coughing people around me these days.I have some time off and will take it easy. Taking Allicin, Olive Leaf Extract, Licorice tea,lots of C and 10,000 units of D every day. Raven

I also have this problem

I also have this problem with novacaine. It is worse when I am sickest. I would be interested in any ideas as to why some of us have this problem.

Hi Raven~  While I was

Hi Raven~  While I was sick, and before I knew what was going on, I did have some unusual reactions to Novacaine.  When it was given to me (in my mouth of course) it made both of my entire arms feel very heavy and odd!!   They recovered, but it was weird.
