From this study (6 days ago):
After having a tooth pulled, that evening I became violently ill, started with upset stomach, then chills, then throwing up and diarrhea, simultainiously. Went on and off for 2, 3 hours. Next day I was weak and stomach was very sensitive but no more throwing up, etc.. I thought I had caught a 24 hr. stomach virus because it went away, then I had a tooth filled,
same thing, not quite as bad as but still bad. I assume the dentist used novacain for deading of the area.
