    Got Wisdom Teeth Removed
    Giovacchino posted:
    I had my first surgery ever to remove four impacted Wisdom Teeth removed around noon today (November 1st) under General Anesthesia. I felt fine, pretty great actually, once I woke up. But for about the past hour now - so 8 hours or so since I got home I've started feeling nauseous if I get out of bed or move my head too fast (which I know is normal), and my legs - and just a tiny bit in my hands - are incredibly tingly and almost numb like when they're about to fall asleep.

    Is this normal to happen to my legs after General Anesthesia? Movement and massaging them helps a little, but not much.

    I'm eighteen, don't smoke or drink, and have good blood pressure. I was also given prescriptions for Hydrocodone, Amoxicillan(sp?), and a steroid to reduce swelling. Could this be a side effect of one of those?

    Thank you for any help!

    Hi Giovacchino,

    It's now days later... how are you doing? If this is continuing and you haven't already contacted your dental surgeon or doctor, please do so.
