I went to a new dentist to get a filling done and finish a root canal (put a post and crown in). He used mepavacaine (on my recommendation) and put an almalgram filling in (silver)
I had approx 1 1/2 tubes of anesthesia for the 2 total procedures.
I got home and all of a sudden felt like I bomb went off in my head. I almost passed out. I was sick for a few days, chills, wacked in the head, lathargic. That passed for about a week and then started up again for now the last couple of weeks.
Let me preface this all by saying I had a SEVERE reaction to Levaquin 11 months ago and have not been the same.
I am concerned, 1. That I can never have dental anesthesia again or 2. That the filling is making me sick.
How can I tell if I either had a toxic reaction to either?
Are there any tests??
I have not felt right since this happened and my balance
is a little off.
This has been a terrible experience. I never had a problem with any dental procedures prior to getting the
ADR's from taking Levaquin.
Any suggestions for someone like me?? I need more
dental work done, but I am terrified. I know I will never get another silver filling that is for sure.
Thank you for you time on this. I don't know whereelse I can turn. My new dentist doesn't know what to say.
