When I have had xylocaine with epinephrine for dental freezing procedures, just to let you know it makes my heart start palpitating and I start shaking without any anxious symptoms. I now have freezing without epinephrine and it is fine so I would check to see the type of anesthetic your son is getting. Best of luck to you and your son.

This web site is not a substitute for a thorough medical evaluation and diagnosis of your vaso-vagal type symptoms.  Medical treatment and diagnosis is the only acceptable initial response to these serious symptoms since they might present from any number of life threatening and treatable illnesses. It is for you and your physician to rule out more serious illnesses; Please don't use this online forum as an alternative to getting responsible medical attention and being under the care of a physician for the duration of any unknown, suspected or dangerous vaso-vagal syndrome symptoms.
