Not sure what was used in your case but I remember Dr. Goldstein had said that Lidocaine (sp?) helped some of his patients.It always happens. I feel calmer, more relaxed and have more energy after getting shot up at the dentist. It generally lasts an hour or two..
Anybody else get that reaction?
I don't know - I asked someone and she said novocaine but I didn't really trust her answer.Are you getting the kind with or without epinephrine?
Hard for me to tell because I get so amped up going out, dentist or not. I'm amped the rest of the day then BOOM! crash
Thanks. I guess I will try sudafed.Most dental numbing shots have epinephrine in it. If you do a search on it and Noriepinepherine this will probably answer your question. For those of us with POTS (depends on what subset you are) some of us have found sudafed to be a temporary help similiar to Noriepinepherine. This was surprising that i would find benefit because I'm HyperPOTS which means my NE levels are too high with standing. Some of us hypothesize that this NE release is a compensation for upright posture with POTS. A good many of us wit EDS have the HyperPOTS version along with MCAS. Noriepinepherine and especially epinephrine also works on allergy respone and they also work on vasoconstricting and vasodilation causing improvements with blood flow and oxygenation.
Sadly for all of us that did the experiment, the good stopped working on day three, for the majority of us. We reserve it for when we need an "on" day.Thanks. I guess I will try sudafed.
