I recently had 3 teeth removed and in the process had several shots. I was very dizzy and my heart raced like crazy, my chest was tight and I felt sweaty cold, clammy and sick. The side effects let up some after a few days but have not gone completely. I am a little concerned. I feel worn out . Is this a normal reaction to Novacaine when you have MVP with regurg.? I have had anxiety attacks in the past and this was not one!!!
Make sure and tell the dentist next time to give you a shot WITHOUT epinephrine. I get these shots all the time when going to the dentist, my heart never races or skips, but in the past when I had the regular novacaine shots, my heart would race, skip, I'd be nauseated etc.
