Novocaine Trouble

I had a really bad experience with Novocaine. I was having a root canal and when he gave me the shot- I felt what felt like "FIRE" Shoot thru my jaw and Face and thru my nose....he said: "I know what you felt" But your not supposed to feel that" Was the only answer he gave me.....Has anybody ever had that happen to them? Thanks

Re: Novocaine Trouble

It sounds like it went straight up some nerve. Novocaine hurts like crazy!

Re: Novocaine Trouble

It sounds like the dentist hit a nerve. There are so many nerves and muscles for them to run into, that it's amazing we don't run into more problems like that more often.
I bet the root canal treatment was painless after that?

Re: Novocaine Trouble

Yes it sounds like your dentist hit a nerve. It can be very painful yes. When giving an injection, the dentist tries to get as close as possible to the nerve without touching it, so he's been on the right track anyway!
