A little loopy

I am almost afraid to post right now with the pain meds I am on.....although that is good because that does mean they are working. :)
I went to the dentist yesterday....and if you read my last post where I told you that the emergency medical doctor told me that they thought I had Bells Palsy.....the dentist told me that he did not think that could be true.
I don't have signs of paralysis in my face...just extreme pain in my right jaw......that not usually being a sign of Bells Palys.
I do have a tooth there that received a crown a few years ago...but I did not have to have a root canal done because it was not needed.
I figure that something happened to it and it is causing my whole jaw to hurt from the top of my jaw bone down to my middle to teeth on the bottom. Hope that makes sense.
Anyway they ran some ex rays and thought maybe the bone might look a little funny but could not be sure that the tooth was dying because I don't have all the symptoms.
So they are sending me to a specialists in Asheville tomorrow.
She has special equipment that will tell her for sure if it is my tooth....I think it is...but hey I am not specialist. I just know my mouth hurts like the dickens.
My brother is going to be kind enough to take me so that Keith does not have to take off of work......and I can say that he was also pretty excited to hear that my doctor is located right across the street from Fuddruckers (a great hamburger place).
I would be afraid to drive with my head in this condition....you should see all the typo's I am correcting so that you can read this. :)
So prayers would be appeciated. I am sure she will probably tell me I need a root canal....I hear that is way better than having to be treated for Bells Palys.
I'll take the root canal. Not sure what else it could be.....but we are on our way to finding out.
I will talk to ya'll a little later on when I can type without misspelling every other word.

Love ya~

Actually, your spelling was great! I am so very sorry about your pain. I had to have two root canals at one time and I knos that pain is excruciating. Being an ex-nurse I do not think it sounds like Bells Palsy either...Keep us posted. Let us pray:


I know You love our sister, Sharon. I know You see her. I know You alone are the God of all flesh and our Great Physician. We ask for healing. We ask for wisdom for the doctors who are evaluating her. Let them correctly identify the problem at hand. We know You can speak and take this all away but we also know that often You work through normal means and use us, humans, to work through for Your glory. We do not know why You are sending her where You are but I pray that Your will be done. Let her speak Your Words to those who need to hear it even as she is being treated. And please bring her some relief. Protect her from medical mistakes. Guard her and keep her and heal her. We know You can do exceedingly, abundantly, more than we ask or imagine. We thank You that You hear us. We lift her up to You and leave her in Your everlasting arms. In Your precious name, Jesus. Amen.

Oh Sharon, I am praying right now for you my friend. My husband was in so much pain a few weeks ago and the dentist said it was a sinus infection. You are a child of God and NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST YOU WILL PROSPER! I believe in the Name of Jesus, you are healed.

Praying as He leads. Too bad you'll be close to Fuddruckers with a bad tooth...it is a deadly wonderous place to eat.

I am so sorry you are experiencing all this pain but am glad the dentist doesn't suspect Bell's Palsy and that you will be going to the specialist.

Praying for you, Sis and hoping the pain meds continue to work. I know what being on pain meds is like and yes, it does make us quite whoozy.

Take care of yourself and be sure to keep us updated.

This is my first visit with you and I just love your blog but I hate that I found you in this condition. You are in my thoughts and prayers and hope you get to feeling better soon.

Shirley said...

Oh Sharon, so, so sorry you are having problems like this. I know that a toothache is one of the most painful of pains....but you are brave....I am terrified of dentists and get really nervous when I have to go....in fact, I need I was prescribed Vallium the last time I went. You will be in my prayers.
