Had injection 10month ago, but I still feel lump and pain at the injection site, also feel pulling down my leg. Pls what can I do?
Hematoma: The lump could be a hardened blood clot under the skin as some bleeding might have occurred at the time of the injection. This is not a dangerous type of blood clot but if it has hardened it may not completely dissolve. It shouldn't cause any other symptoms, however. See your physician if symptoms persist. ...Read more

Dentist yesterday AM for filling. Still hurts to open mouth & red/pain at the injection site of the local anesth. Is this normal, & for how long?

This almost always quickly subsides (1-3 days) although I cannot give you a definite time frame. You can use warm salt water rinses and OTC pain medication such as Advil, Motrin, Aleve (naproxen) or what you would normally take for a headache. ...Read more
