I took out my upper wisdom tooth about 2 weeks ago. It was uneventful, simple, and there was never any pain or soreness afterwards.

Now, for the last 2 days I have numbness as if I have a novacaine shot. The dentist insists this is impossible because only the lower wisdom teeth have this issue, never the upper ones.

Not only do i have this numbness (which just subsided a few min ago), I had two weird stuttering episodes last week as i was waking up. The dentist suggests this may have been a mini stroke.

Who else has had this? I am so lost.
