I needed to get a root canal done in my teeth which I left

Customer Question

I needed to get a root canal done in my teeth which I left for 10 months and when I went to the dentist I was informed that it had infected my nerves now I feel like every nerve in my body is fading away. I can't feel anything almost as if I feel a very dull pain in my church my breathing has become rapid and I've been to the gp and they have said they can't find anything.
