Freedom Loved it while it lasted!!
Over the last 6 days I have had this ungodly, Horrific pain in my left jaw and upper and lower teeth, I can't eat, Drink, talk, brush my teeth really or even have a conversation with out pain. I went to the ER first and they gave me morphine, then dilauded and finally sent me home and told me to see my dentist(TMJ)So The next day I called my dentist and she referred me to a Maxofacial Dr. so I went saw him and he feels yes I have TMJ but that is not the primary problem. My Primary problem is Trigeminal Neuralgia. Basically nerves that cause such massive pain people would rather die, that have this pain. My PCP was filled in on my issue and called in tegretol for me and had ordered an MRI of my brain to make sure there is not brain tumor or MS causing this TN. So I really don't feel stressed, I just want it to go away. I just got done telling my dad on Sunday...that since my WLS I feel so alive and have done more in the last 3 weeks then I have done in the last 3 years. I feel so blessed to have this new found freedom and not being a slave to my body/blood sugar and anxiety is a true blessing from God. While I still am in pain, I praise god for the 5-6 weeks of life I got to live pain and fear free. I will see where this journey leads me but where ever it is...it's exactly where God wants me to be!!
