Some people don't respond to the shots as well as others. Or your nerves could go a different way than the average person so you don't get as numb. If you feel pain, you need to tell the dentist so they can try and get you more numb. If it's a child, they could just be nervous and think they fell pain when it's just the vibrations and their imagination. That happens sometimes. It can even happend with adults who are overly nervous.

My dentist explained that the nerve could be inflamed and extra sensitive. After many shots, she drilled into the cavity enough to administer the novacain directly and it worked immediately.

Can you stop yourself from getting a filling once the dentist has told you that you have a little hole starting and i might need a filling?

As a patient you always have the right to refuse treatment, but it really is better to get a filling while the hole is still small. It's much cheaper and less prone to have complications later.
