Dentistry/Sinus problem after anesthetic injection

I am interested in the above question and response. I had a similar response to a dental procedure yesterday. I began sneezing during the procedure - also for crowning a tooth - and sneezed for the rest of the day and night. This morning I feel better although the urge to sneeze is still there. Only one side of my nose was affected but I streamed and sneezed all day. I do suffer from sinusitis and allergies but this was different to anything I've experienced before.

I had same thing happen to me. Got an injection in upper mouth, could actually feel the novicaine going into my sinus
cavity....it was a hot sensation in my face. I have been sneezing continuously since I left the dentist office with severe drainage on my left side. It has to be the novicaine being injected into sinuses.

I would like to add that I experienced exactly the same symptoms as Lisa. After the dental assistant administered the anesthetic and fitted the temporary crown, my left sinus became stuffy and irritated, resulting in nasal drainage. It has been two days now, and the symptoms still have not gone away. I have never experienced this problem before.

I am having similar problems which scares me because two years ago after my first crown on the upper right, my palate was swollen and tender. My dentist then did a root canal, which was probably not necessary. The pain continued and one week later while bending over, a yellow liquid ran from my nose. Apparently, a terrible sinus infection but instant relief. Of course, the dentist had never heard of such a thing. This time I wouldn't let him give me a shot in the palate but I am still experiencing aching in the jaw, congestion, etc.

I also just came from the dentist after having new fillings put in, in 2 of my upper teeth. I have been experiencing non stop sneezing and a runny nose in my left nostril. I have tried a Neti pot with no relief! Started before I even finished in the chair! Could it be from the freezing??
