Anesthesia from root canal

I recently had a root canal but they never finished it cause it was calcified. Well, my dentist wants me to go see a specialist. Anyways, when I was getting the root canal done, she injected the anesthetic in me. It made my heart race and I was really shaky. It lasted for about 5 to ten minutes. Maybe even shorter than that..it just freaked me out. I was trying to act calm when she was working on my tooth but I wanted to climb up the wall. Welll, I haven't gone back cause of that little incident. But I do need to finish the root canal. So, my question is has anyone experienced the kind of side effects that happened to me? Is it normal?

Exclamation Re: Anesthesia from root canal

Fairchild, please tell me how old you are! Because when I was 15-16, dido!!!! Except I couldn't stop myself from almost hyperventelating, and the dentist had my breath in a paper sack, and he referred me to an endodontic specialist to take care of my root canal. They wanted to knock me out for a root canal (yeah right!) and they were very rude and cussed at me. However, I moved back to Iowa from Arizona, and the dentist I saw wasn't too nice, either, but he did give me the shadow of the doubt (fainted at pano-x-ray, how embarrising) and he gave me laughing gas, and it solved yesterdays problems for me sitting in that chair! We got it done, but don't see him anymore. Now I think I was given a very caring dentist in Cedar Rapids area of Iowa. I have to get my lower wisdom teeth removed before too long. Anyways, I just joined this site, so feel free to post again, and I'll make an effort when I'm on next to reply!!!!
