Hello im an 18 year old who went to a dentist for wisdom tooth removal. Immediately after recieving local anesthesia I didnt feel right. After the procedure was done, I was left cross eyed, unable to see. I literally was seeing double. This lasted about an hour and a half. I called my local hospital, which has a nurse
calling service, and asked a nurse about it. She ad no knowledge of this and told me to ask the dentist.
I remember looking in the mirror and watching my eyes go out of focus, as one who shift to the left or right on its own. My mother was worried to the point that she called the paramedics. They advised me to go to the ER, which I decided not to, though now I wish I had. They told me he probably put too much.
I was unable to look at anything directly.
Right after the procedure when I mentioned this to the dentist, he looked at his staff with concern and said that everything was fine. But his worrisome look made me feel uneasy.
Fast forward a week later I go back for a follow up. Come to find out, I now need root canals because my nerves were damaged. Mind you, just one week before my nerves were completely fine, and this was not on the X ray. I asked if the anesthesia could of caused that, and they said no. I figured it it really could cause that, they of course wouldn't tell me.
Now because of this, I am not referred to yet ANOTHER dentist to have root canals.
Can someone please tell me do I have a case? What should by my steps from here on?
Thanks so much in advance.
