  • I think it was due to apprehension, and anxiousness about the procedure you were receiving. Also, could be an allergic reaction to the substance in the anesthetic solution..The main thing that causes the allergy are the preservatives that are in used in the anesthetics.Next time you have a procedure where anaesthetic is required ensure you tell your doctor about this. It would be good to know the exact name of what they used for the local anaesthetic, because the next time they may ensure they do not use that exact one.
