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.
