I went to an oral surgeon to get my bottom left wisdom tooth pulled. The surgeon injected Novocaine type of pain killers into the area. Even before the dentist could pull out the entire tooth I had a grand mal seizure 3-4 mins long and was rushed to the hospital emergency room. The ER test showed nothing wrong with all my test. The ER doc said that the Novocaine could have been injected into an artery in my mouth which could have led to the seizure. I'm 39yrs old and have no history of seizures. I'm not allowed to drive till I see a specialist in ref to the seizures. I'm missing time from work and using my own sick time so I can get paid till I get cleared to return to work. My wisdom tooth is still in my mouth and I'm in a lot of pain but now I'm scared to return to a dentist.
