Dental Anesthesia

Symptoms After Root Canal



I had a root canal and the next day I couldn`t keep any food or liquids down.  Also felt chills and sweating on the same day after the root canal.  Feeling somewhat better today 2 days after.  Was it the Advil taken for pain or the novocaine used to do the root canal?


These symptoms to not seem to be related to local anesthesia.  You may have a coincident GI virus.  You may want to follow up with your family physician if symptoms persist.
