5 Minutes after the test I suffered a massive heart attack, and within 45 mins had to be shocked 27 times, went into cardiac arrest. Doc tells me I should not be here.

Went in to have this done, was a bit scared because of the reviews. I did great, piece of cake! Mild headache, but went away right away. Whoever thinks this is tough is a whimp! lol, seriously it was nothing. The dentist is by far worse
