Like to know what`s in a Novocaine shot
In the first place I have Mutiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) and I had teeth extracted in two visits and he used Novocaine and both times I`ve felt bad for weeks like itchinginside my skin..stomach upset and my gums seem to get on my nerves..feel like their swollen but their not..I don`t think I can go thru anymore extractions
You should consult an allergist who will be able to determine whether your symptoms after exposure to Novocaine are allergic in nature.
