Root Canals

Root Canal and Vomiting

05/31/2010

Question:

Had root canal procedure started and within a few days I was violently ill. In the hospital, dehydrated from being so ill. Admitted me and in for two days with stomach pain and could not find anything. A nurse told me that it could have possibily been a bacterial infection prompted by the root canal. I was ill for more than 10 days. Two days ago I returned to the dentist to continue with the completion of the root canal (temporary crown etc.). Today I am physically ill and cannot keep anything in my system. Do you have any thoughts on this subject?
