more if i am stressed. i have high blood pressure . without meds it runs 147/93. i am on atenolol 25 mg. a day. my dentist says he will not use epi and doesnt know what else to do. he sent me to an oral surgeoun who says he will use epi on me. my question is, is this safe to use epi on me? my cardiologist says no and gives me no other options to get my tooth pulled. how do you get a tooth pulled if you cant get numb safely?????... will the epi kill me or something?
I checked with my old dentist who moved out of town, and he said that he would have either used lidocaine or carbocaine. My question is - does lidocaine ALWAYS come with epinephrine? Is it possible that because I did not have much to eat that day, I somehow had a much stronger than normal reaction to carbocaine? Is carbociane supposed to go into your bloodstream, or does it stay localized to the jaw bone?
If I covered one eye the vision was ok otherwise. My blood pressure went up also from 107/75 to 149/89. Vision is ok now, blood pressure decreased but not all the way.

Dental lidocaine often contains adrenaline, to constrict blood vessels and keep the lidocaine from having systemic effects. Could it be that your reaction actually was towards adrenaline and not lidocaine? I don't know, but you should ask your cardiologist. Anyway, if he is against IV lidocaine and you had this reaction, I would not take the chance..
I understand about anatomic variations and fully believe this seizure was caused by lidocaine essentially hitting a vein and numbing my girls' brain and not her tooth; BUT, 1)This is apparently a 'rare' event, How often does it occur and does she have an increased (any?)chance of this event happening again? Or the same chance as everybody else? 2) Is she prone to seizures and this event "set her off"? 3) She still needs this lower molar filled, now what? Other drugs?
Does anyone know if it is dangerous to get lidocaine IV infusion (for pain) when I have multiple daily heart arrhythmias, tachycardia, bradycardia, PVCs, PSVTs, PACs, SVEs, and also fluctuating blood pressure problems. (I am also on toprol xl daily). I had severe heart reaction to lidocaine from a dental injection in the past, so they wont use it on me any more. But now my pain dr. wants to do a lidocaine IV infusion, he says IV infusion of lidocaine is different than the dental injection.
But this spasm is 5days old now, very uncomfortable and distracting and exhausting,mostly pressure with some aching, and I had minimal discomfort for 6 months up until this started 5 days ago. Please, has anyone else experienced pressure and tightness like this? after cranial surgery? Any thoughts on what this might be? If it settles eventually? and how to manage it? I never had headaches before my surgery either so if this is a migraine or a type of migraine I have nothing to compare it to.
Tried Prednisone, Z-pack, Augmentin 875, Midrin, Ibuprofen, Butalbital, Nortriptolyne, steroid and Lidocaine-Steroid shot, and nothing helps. I have been checked for temporal arteritis, sinusitis, and TMJ. I am now being told it's just chronic daily headaches and to keep trying different meds. Would chronic daily headaches actually cause a tender spot in the back of head that radiates pressure build-up?
The room wasn't spinning but it felt like head sensations and dizzy. I had a bit of eye pressure and my ears felt like they do on a airplane. I was popping them like crazy trying to relieve this. Since than my eyes feel normal and some days are much better than others but I still have these symptoms. It feels like a heavy head tingling , a little dizzy, and my ears still pop. Also my front forehead is tight a bit. Its definately not a headache.
i have the bright red blood on the toilet paper and off and on that blood is attached to the stool....
Body covered in broken blood vessels. Whites of my eyes blood red and purple/red spots all over, especially my face. Orders at the time were to be tested for HIV every 6 months for 10 years, due to blood transfusions (HIV awareness but blood screening for HIV had not yet been fully implemented.) Never tested positive. 1995 Inline skating accident, injury at lower back, disc bulge at S-1 L-5 and believed to have developed my large Tarlov Cyst at base of spinal cord during this time.
Ankle pain is also present in high levels of entrapment. With increased pressure on the nerves, blood flow decreases, fluid collects on standing and walking causing swelling feet. Diagnosis would include evaluation by neurologist and an orthopedician, later by a podiatrist. MRI foot, ultrasound to check for synovitis, Nerve conduction studies all aid in the confirming the diagnosis.
I am more sore today just from being tense than the actual procedure hurt. The lidocaine was the worst part and that was not that bad,. I did not feel the procedure it self at all. The best part is she will have the resulets in one week. Did not take valium for the procedure.
Had brain and cervical MRIs. Had EMG and another test they do during the same session and carpal tunnel was ruled out. There was an abnormal needle result that suggested something neurological is going on. Two lesions in brain, none in cervical spine. Vision went bad suddenly, so I told neurologist. He said for me to go see an Ophthalmologist. Was at Ophthalmologist office for four and a half hours and she found I have refractive diplopia and convergence insufficiency X (T).
My own GP has noted that when I'm in pain (even with a migraine), my blood pressure goes up pretty significantly, and for those whose ectopics respond to blood pressure changes, this could be a real factor. Your tachycardia in the period just after your injection was probably a reaction to the epinephrine that is used often used in these injections to help keep the anesthetic (Carbocaine or Lidocaine) in the area during and after the procedure. Epi can really cause the heart to race.
i have had bleeding for 3 months and have bad cramps and blood clots and stopped bleeding for 10 days in that 3 months finly stopped 1 day well should i say more im waiting 1 more mounth then ???????????
It has been almost two weeks and I still have severe pain after a bowel movement. I do have some lidocaine inserts that help some. I go back to my doctor in a few weeks and hope to have some answers.

I will be posting again after this Thursdays blood results and I hope the count is 0 but for now I had to tell you and maybe it could help someone else about this rash I had on my legs and belly. I stopped the pill for the itch, because it was putting me to sleep but found this and my rash is almost 98 % better. I took a cool bath every 2 nights and used Aveeno Bath (pretty sure its oatmeal) and this thing works. Just to let you know.
But, I am seriously contemplating asking my MD to prescribe Topamax for me for weight loss. I think maybe my blood pressure will also decrease, and I am sure my feet and joints won't hurt anymore if I can get this extra 60 lbs off me. As I said, I am 66 years young, and am interested if any other young seniors are in my shoes. Any comments for the older group will be greatly appreciated.
) then what that does is decrease blood flow to that area and can cause ulcerations after consistent pressure. It is even worse if his protein levels (albumin) are low.
But I ask you, could forcing a lot our eyes in front of a screen for a long periode of time finish by injurying nerves and muscles in the front of my head? Or/and could my bad posture kind of jammed my neck and therefore alter my blood flow or something like that?

I dont know why we hurt, and it seems, neither does anyone else. I bought burn gel tonight, its has 2.5% lidocaine in it and it numbs the area of a burn, I may use it and see what happens, it was a suggestion to help the pain of vulvondia on a site, its OTC and I got it at Walmart for $5.
I was poked 4 times, 1st needle burned a little and I felt pressure, the other 3 just a little pressure. Then waited to see if the pathologist had enough to do the test. The worst part of the whole thing was waiting to get it done, then waiting some more for the results.
If all the tests are negative, an ultrasound can be considered to evaluate the gallbladder, or a 24-hr pH study to conclusively evaluate for GERD. With obesity and high blood pressure, there is certainly increased risk for heart disease. A stress test to evaluate for heart disease would not be unreasonable. I would discuss these options with your personal physician. Followup with your personal physician is essential.
I called the office on the 2nd day after the dilation and he prescribed me a concoction of Maalox and lidocaine, which tasted disgusting but helped with the pain. He said I had acid reflux, which I've never had a problem with in my life, and put me on Zegerid. He also did a gastric emptying test, and it turns out my stomach no longer wants to empty on it's own.
i draw blood, pump a blood pressure cuff, do EKG and give injections i am not healing and i feel like my wrist never had a chance to rest.......
