Aye. I had a tooth pulled in December, and there was nothing they could do to make it stop hurt. They had to cut it in half before they pulled it out. They gave me a little codeine plus Novocaine, but it still hurt like crazy. I mean, I still had to drive home from the appointment, so they couldn't dope me up. But these things happen. Sometimes you just have to suck it up.

There's no such thing as being immune to nitrous oxide (laughing gas). The truth is that your dentist pumped you with bubblegum-scented air while he actually huffed your dose of the good stuff. At least he thought your tooth extraction was fuckin' hilarious!

On a pharmacology web site, yes, paradoxical reactions exist. On a humor web site, they are so rare that they can be considered impossible to support the power of the punch line. What's funnier, a paradoxical reaction or a dentist stealing your N2O? 4 out of 5 dentists will say the reaction (and go on to recommend Trident gum), while 4 out of 5 FML readers will say the stoner dentist.

Don't wory, some of us can be immune and others can even ignore or bypass the immunity through weakening themselves...Humans are not as they used to be...

man they gave me laughing gas and I laughed for about twenty seconds, and my vision was fuzzy, and after that I just cried the entire time. idk what you're talking about you can't be immune.

People can have adverse reactions to meds...my dad was in the hospital 'cause of ulcers, and they put a tube down his throat, but because they didn't want him to panic/feel uncomfortable, they gave him meds to make him drowsy and sleepy/unaware....he ended up yanking the tube out 'cause the medicine made him FREAK OUT and be unaware. Despite the fact it is unlikely for it to be the OPs case, it is possible.

Umm why would anyone want to "deal with the pain" of having their teeth pulled?? Hello, we are a civilized society, Im sure theres another numbing agent that OP is not allergic to. Theres no reason that just because one numbing agent doesn't work, that you should have to deal with the pain. Im sorry that you have to endure it, but its unnecessary...why put yourself through that pain of you don't want to? I mean if your into stuff like that, more power to you, but if I had to get teeth pulled and they told me there was going to be no anestesia I would inform them they arent pulling a damn thing til they find me something to help with pain, and then I'd find someone to call about their caveman dental program.

Totally agree with #51... wtf is up with you? Why on EARTH would that warrant a 'suck it up'? Getting teeth pulled hurts like a BITCH. There's no way I'd allow someone to pull one of my teeth without some kind of freezing agent... no fucking way.
