had major dental (and major novacaine) work done on my front teeth and within 2 days had massive post nasal drip.. then it stopped. (never had PND before). I go back 2 months later to the dentist on the same front teeth... same thing.. major PND... then it stopped again. The last time I went to finish up the work on the front teeth I got PND again and it never went away. This was 3 years ago and I have it 24/7. I was reaching for straws as to why this happened and it took a while for it to sink in. Major dental work and novacaine which was tons of shots... must have done something to me that damaged my sinuses.. ... Just a thought for anyone who has had major dental work in the top front teeth under the nose and wonders why they now have PND or massive sinus problems... I know there is a connection with me and could be for you if you're wondering why something like this happened... check and see if it coincides with a dental appointment and novacaine.
Re: Chronic post nasal drip due to Novacaine shots
i know that i had been treated for a sinus infection (only one zpak though) and then got a crown. Then the infection came back with a vengeance. Ever since (this past winter), whenever i have sinus issues, the symptoms that caused me to get the crown come back. Very frustrating. I see my dentist in a couple of weeks and a ENT on the 25th. I hope to get some answers... strange how all this is happening after 40 yrs of age... the sinus crap i mean
Hope you find out
