I am due for dental work. I need 2 upper wisdom teeth removing and possibly 2 other teeth. A total of 4 for sure. I realise that leaving these in could develop into a nasty infection.
Anyway I have have PACs/PVCs. Never been diagnosed with afib, but have been told by docs I'll have these for life. Nothing more was said on the subject 15 years ago and here I am today with PACs/PVCs. Still alive.
My problem is these things strike worse when I'm anxious. Certain positions make me more vulnrable to getting them and lying down is one of those positions. It can range from a flutter, to a bang in the chest and a pause and then a horrible sensation of blood traveling through my body. Had thousands of these over the years.
What I don't want is this to happen in the dentist chair. If I have one I will freak out. Especially being numb on both sides of my mouth! And I know that the numb feeling is going to increase anxiety and make PACs/PVCs guaranteed.
What meds can I take to ensure they don't happen? I was thinking of Lorazepam. But I'm no doctor and just want to make sure my dental visit goes hassle free. I would literally jump out of the dentist chair and run if I had PAC's/PVC's whilst being worked on.
