I went to the dentist 2 years ago. Every sense I got a numbing shot my face and nasal area feels as if it has been stoped up. My upper teeth hasn’t stopped hurting I’m having balance problems and my tooth that was worked on tasted funny. I have head aches all the time the pressure constantly hurts me every day. And my sinuses burn from time to time and when I drive the pressure get worse . Please help me

Have you asked the dentist about it or have you gone to a doctor to ask about it?

They said they didn’t do anything to cause what I feel. As soon as I got the numbing shot I felt the pressure . It hurts and it’s hard to breath

It feels very hard to breath. Someone told me that the lining of my sinuses could be numb.

Hi Kim201425,

If I got you right, then all of this happened two years ago and you are having these symptoms since then? I have difficulty imagining that you have been living with this for two years, particularly having difficulty to breathe :( I think the best idea is to get to your GP to find out what is going on...

Hi Kim201425

Sorry to hear of the anxiety and symptoms this is causing you. I hope you can get some answers soon. I echo what Enarete and fearful say about going to a Dr to check this out if it has to do with breathing at all.

They won’t look in to it . All they want to do is give me allergy shots . I tell them it’s hard to breath and I feel lots of pressure

I’m guessing it’s not too hard to breath that you would need to go at the emergency room? I find it worrisome that you say it’s hard to breath and they don’t seem to want to help.

Missing too much information I'm afraid.
What was done to your upper tooth (filling, root canal, etc.)?
Have you tried the allergy shots or antihistamines?
Has anything helped relieve symptoms, even temporarily?

If your current GP or specialist (ENT/allergist) aren't helping then try to get another opinion.

Sense I got it done I have felt lots of pressure I. The right side of my face it’s hard to breath my nose hurts really bad I’m having balance problems . This is right after I got up from the dentist. Driving and walking makes the pressure worse and my breathing gets worse. I hear cracking in my right side when I push it in my face it hurts bad. I feel like my nasel area and siniues are numb it hurts bad
