Hi, my name is Emily and i have a problem. Last tuesday went to the dentist to get the rest of my root canal finished and something horrible happened, and i hope you can help me.First i was numbed with epenephrine, my hands were shaking, and my heart was going really fast.(which i heard is normal). so i rested about ten minutes to get my pulse down. after that, the dentist numbed me with isocaine (i should point out that she was numbing the left side of my mouth) almost immediately i felt wierd. my left side was numb, but around my right eye it felt numb too. Then my right eye started having spasms. i could open my right eye, but when i barley tried to close my eye, the muscles tightened up and closed it i couldnt control the muscles around my right eye very well. Then, to add on to that my left eye that was numb would close maybe half way. The dentist said it might be belpausy, but she looked in a book and i only had one of the symptoms, which was that i could not close one of my eyes very well. After the spasms first started, i stayed in the denists office about an hour because she wanted to moniter me. After i left, i had the spasms for only about 10 minutes more before the numbness went away from my face, and the spasms were getting weaker. The next day i was looking at the inside of my mouth where she injected me with isocaine. there was a blister like sore, which was red around it. neither the dentist or a general doctor knew what was so, :confused:i was wondering if you could help me, or figure out someone who can.

  • I hope i can help at least a little, it sound like you might be allergic to whatever you got injected with. or maybe she injected you in a nerve where she wasnt suppose to. Good luck but look into this.
