Tooth Extraction Without Anaesthesia
I have a dilemma. I have a condition called histamine intolerance. My body lacks sufficient diamine oxidase to counteract rises in histamine which comes from food and drugs. In order to control this condition I must eat a low histamine diet and avoid the ingestion of certain drugs that raise histamine levels. Even doing this, my histamine levels are still above normal, but I can live with it. However, one of the symptoms of this condition is low BP due to higher than normal histamine circulating in the body.
General and local anaesthetics raise histamine levels thereby causing a further drop in BP for those suffering from HIT. I can tolerate dental treatment without an anaesthetic, but I may need to have a tooth extracted and don't know if I could cope without anaesthetic cover. I have had an episode of extremely low BP previously which was very scary and would rather not repeat it.
Have any of you, or do you know anybody who has done this, had an extraction without anaesthetic? It should be over quite quickly, all going well.

Well I don't know if there are people who extracts tooth without anaesthesia but I know that it is possible to do it if you can really muster up the willpower and courage to do it.
Try thinking of pain as an illusion and just one feeling.

Some dentists work with hypnosis, even for extractions.
Just a few web pages I found on the topic:
USC School Of Dentistry Teaches Hypnosis As An Alternative To Needles And Novocain
Miscellaneous Medical Applications of Hypnosis
My mother had wisdom tooth extraction back in the late sixties using hypnosis, and hypnosis has a long history in dental work (apparently going back to the 19th century, which surprised me when I read it just now).
So you might want to see if you can work with a dentist who uses it, or with a hypnotist who is familiar with the use of dental hypnosis, and see what you can work out.
