I am alive and the meds are working , it took roughly 10 minutes to begin killing the inflamation in my throat I honestly thought it was large cancerous growths of some kind . Still mildly sore glands but I can swallow now . I'm pretty happy the pain is not so severe I can't believe I put up with that much pain for that long even with pain meds . I guess they just were not strong enough . Hopefully now I only have to deal with the withdrawal from all the pain meds .I know its going to happen because there is no way a person can take that much pain meds and not suffer from withdrawal . Hopefully this thing is over and life can get back to normal that was more stress than I've probably ever had or can recall . Sometimes things happen which makes one wonder if they are on their way out this was one of those times .
This is my up date and all looks good thanks to those who listened I needed a place to vent my pain thanks for letting me do that .
eiy eiy eiy !
I don't even know what tmj is ... you know what I know I'm not the only one to experience such pain even with pain meds (which I can't stand pain meds) but why does you or I or anyone have to go through that much pain hell I might as well have been stuck buried under an avalanche for 10 days with broken bones there would have been no difference . I still get that tingling numbing sensation like dental freezing on that side of my face as well as on my tongue and lips and occasional pain when the anti inflamatory wears down . I never asked for pain meds I just want/wanted something done to correct a wrong ....
