What Causes Profuse Sweating And Numbness In The Gums?
Its not uncommon for me to feel run down see medical history, but yesterday I had to go to the dentist to have a tooth extracted, Now Ive been to the dentist many times and some this year and had the injections for numbing the teeth/gum many times. But this time when I was given it I felt strange, sweating, a little breathless and uneasy is the best I can explain it. The dentist put the air con on and I eventually felt ok, she explained it was the adrenaline in the injection, thing is I have never felt that before. I only got 3 hours sleep that night and was feeling really strange next day, so I tested my blood pressure and it was high. Can you take a look at the reading I have done today (attached) and explain why it s high and seems to be the diastolic mostly what is the significance of the higher diastolic reading? and what you think I should do
Sorry I have forgot to upload the pictures of the reading, have attached now, they where taken through out today from the morning till about an hour ago
Side effects of xylocaine.
Confusion, dizziness, headache, funny feeling and high blood pressure are side effect of xylocaine therapy.Lidocaine is a local anesthetic (numbing medication). It works by blocking nerve signals in your body. Lidocaine injection is used to numb an area of your body to help reduce pain.
As it increases the levels of adrenaline hormone ir cause rise in blood pressure and feeling of uneasiness etc which will go away by itself in 48-72 hours.
The diastolic reading, or the bottom number, is the pressure in the arteries when the heart rests between beats. This is the time when the heart fills with blood and gets oxygen.
I can't see your readings please attach them with follow up or mail it to YYYY@YYYY
Have seen your reading they fall under grade 1 hypertension(most likely its because of the drug injected by dentist).
My suggestion is wait for 72 hours before going for any cardiac investigation.
Drink lots of water and try not to over stress yourself.
Follow up after 72 hours.
