Dental Sedation and Wisdom Teeth Are Go, Go, Go!

I saw my dental surgeon today to discuss the extraction of my remaining two (top) wisdom teeth.  I blogged all about dental sedation and how it will not present significant complications with my ME/CFS.

Today he confirmed that my amitriptyline doesn’t contra-indicate with the sedation so we are all set to go!  I’m booked in to have the teeth extracted in a few weeks. Gulp!

The dental surgeon also assured me that this time things be a lot easier than when I had my bottom wisdom teeth out last year (one of which proved to be complicated – gory details available to anyone who wants them).  These remaining teeth are already pointing in the direction that they need to come out (yeah to teeth growing outwards!).

So hopefully the impact on my health CFS/ME wise will be minimised.  It’s an early start (for me) as the surgery is around 45 minutes away but the whole day should be a blur thanks to the sedative ;o)

So feeling re-assured and ready to get these damn teeth out!  But maybe just a teeny bit nervous – but you have to expect that from someone who needs an IV sedative I suppose.

    I had 2 root canals in the last month. The second time around the local anesthetic just nailed me. My heart started racing after the injection, I was dizzy when I finally got out of the chair. But then I was really tired the rest of the day.

    I figured the heart racing would aggravate my CFS and it did. One day this summer I was lying in bed wondering how my heart still had the energy to beat and wondering what exactly CFS was doing to my body to make it so tired. I came to the conclusion something had affected my mitochondria, hence my muscles, and my heart is after all a muscle. Plus sometimes I feel too tired to breathe, and that’s all muscle work too.

    It’s so upsetting to have this disease and I wish I knew how to get rid of it.
