Hi friends, I think I've dislocated my jaw! I see singing cowboy dentist at 4 today. My heart is beating very fast, is that normal?
I thank all of my drugs.com family!
I would rather give birth to triplets than have a root canal, to answer your question, yup~ pain, along with the antisipation of not knowing what is going to happen when you get to the dentist will cause a rapid heart beat from the stress alone, if you're in pain that also will add the stress, take a deep breath, try to calm yourself down, let the assistant know you're feeling stressed she will also help you. Good Luck at the Dentist. I hope you're soon feeling better.
hi sweetlem,hope you start to feel better soon.and yes pain def does cause heart rate to clime.try to focus on slowing your breathing,in through your nose out through your mouth. keep telling yourself that your pain will pass.try swishing warm saltwater around inside your mouth.try soft music also.hope you feel better soon little sister.let us know how things go for you today...
I am positive it makes your heart beat faster! I think it is pretty common with most pain, even when I had my car accident, I kept telling the paramedics I could walk. Even told them to let me. Of course, my torn up mess of a foot proved I couldn't put an ounce of pressure on it. I really hope your tooth feels better. My question to you... "is a singing cowboy dentist normal? LOL! Fall Queen
try a hot compress or a heating pad on the side of your face,as hot as you can stand it. dont burn yourself,sounds like your gonna need a antibiotic to take some of the swelling down.let me know how things go... im goin to send you psychic healing all the way from my bedroom here in southampton pa. get ready here it comes. oooooooommmmm ooooooooommmmmm
How in the world did that happen? It sounds tremendously painful and enough to cause a major panic attack, that would certainly get your heart beating faster. Are you sure it's the dentist and not the Dr. you should be seeing? I'm sure he will help you, one way or another, let us know what the outcome is and now that it's so much later than when you first wrote, hopefully you are back to "normal" by now? I hope so, sending you good thoughts sweets, TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF. xxoo Dede
Yes I know it does - my heart pounds rapidly when I am in pain and my Dr. told me my blood pressure goes up so high that I need to take a pill for it. Hang in there and try to relax. I thought I was having panic attacks alot and I think it is something related to mitral valve prolapse that makes my heart feel like that - I am a nervous wreck all the time but now I feel like it is O.K. Let us know what happens. K
Of course, just like when I was admitted into ER for severe abdominal pain, my heart rate was up, blood pressure high ( I never have high blood pressure) and nurses said it was because I was uncomfortable and in pain. Especially anything with anxiety and panic attacks, your heart rate will rise.
I've been suffering from a torn meniscus for three months now. I need the surgery, my cardiologist won't clear me for it because of an accelerated heart rate. i Maintain the heart rate is caused by the intense pain due to the three meniscus tears. I use Vicodin (7.5/300) and Lidocaine patch(0.5 %) for pain control. I've noticed that when I remove the patch in the morning my resting heart rate goes from 70 BPM to over 90 BPM in an hour or so. I've been tracking the changes for a couple of weeks now and will present to my heart guy on July 5...
