Poisoned At The Dentist?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else had really weird reactions, as in feeling "poisoned" for a week after getting dental work done? Could it be from the novacaine, or whatever it is they numb you with? I had never been numbed at the dentist (as far as I can remember - no fillings or anything), so maybe it's normal, but I have felt SO WEIRD since I got some dental work done last week.

They also did impressions and took and impression of my bite line with this weird whip cream like substance, so god only knows what's in that stuff. I guess it could be gluten, but it really doesn't feel like that. I've had crazy brain fog, really intense night sweats (like I have to wake up and take a shower at 2:30 in the morning), shakiness, really dark urine even though I drink tons of water, dizziness, I keep dropping things, I just feel really blah in general. I mean it's not so bad that I can't function, it's just weird.

The only cause I can think of is the dentist. Does this happen to anyone else???? Or is this just a new form of glutening from whatever was in that nasty impression and whip creamy stuff????

thank you so much for this discussion! I went to the dentist yesterday and seemed like everything was fine...started some cramps this am and I have been having diarreah all morning- I was panicking because I beleive I did not ingest any gluten through my diet...but reading this helps me to understand I need to reserach a bit more and help my dentist understand my sensitivity- am not sure to what- I plan on calling and finding out what the ingredients are in the novacaine they used for my dental work...

Well, they really can't do dental work without numbing the area. I don't think they're allowed. ...My dad is a periodontist.

With that much pain, you'd go into shock.

I would call your dentist right now about your symptoms.

They do have an epinephran-free anesthetic though. I went back to the dentist last week to finally get my veneers put on. I explained very clearly that I had severe reactions to epinephran. The dentist agreed to give me the epinephran-free version. In the middle of everything she got tired of the fact that the weaker anestethic was wearing off quickly, so she gave me the epinephran without telling me. My whole body started shaking uncontrollably in the chair. She said, "now that I see how you react to that, I won't give it to you again." My gums were gushing blood to the point where she had to go put on a smock, because the blood was getting all over her white coat. As this was all going on, she was telling me how much fun she was having :angry:

It was so twisted, and after all that I have veneers that do not look good. I need to find one of those natural dentists. It was the worst experience...

That is beyond outrageous, perhaps we should have dentists sign agreements with us that state they will not poison us. :angry::angry::angry: I don't think suing is the answer generally but I also don't think you should be paying for work that you aren't happy with and a dentist so arrogant as to disregard your request not to be poisoned should not be rewarded financially for doing so.

I'm so sorry that happened to you.

Thank you for this thread, I need some dental work done and now I am going to look for a dentist who understands and respects the needs of Celiacs.

Thanks for your post Rinne. The good thing is, I haven't paid the dentist yet. I don't think she'll be getting a whole lot of money from me.
