No Stranger to Needles..

So today I was injected again! as some of you know a few days ago I had a scan on my shoulder, before this though I had to get dye injected into it. The story is posted on my blog about it if you want to read more. But today I was at the dentist for what I thought would be a routine check-up. Turns out that under one of my fillings a bit of food got stuck underneath and he had to drill out the filling and re-fill it! Before he done this I was injected twice in my gums near the tooth and once on the cheek inside my mouth. My mouth was numb for about 4 hours after it. After the dentist I decided to go for a haircut since the end of the holidays are coming up and it's fair to say I had a hard time having a conversation with her with half of my face numb!

Tomorrow I get the results of my shoulder scan, So until then all the best!

  6. Experienced the same thing when pulling out 2 wisdom teeth, to be honest I'm glad there's needles, the pain would be pretty unbearable without. ^^

  11. @Bang for my Buck - They injected dye before my shoulder was MRI scanned. I have tore my shoulder and they needed to see how bad it is for possible surgery!

  21. I actually fainted once going to the dentist when I was little. I guess they didn't use anesthesia because I was out cold the whole time.

    I feel your pain mate. :(
