What your saying is true, in Human Anatomy, we had to learn those 5 major nerves that come out of your upper spine and invervate your face. But chances are if that was the problem it would not just be one tooth but the whole upper or lower side of the jaw on what ever side that it is.
PALady I know things are tough for you, and I don't envy you your situation at all! But it can happen to any and all of us, just as it has to you! You just never know what fate has waiting for you! I do hope you can get all your paper work done and turned in, SSD would be a real Blessing for you to have, and hopefully you will get it the first time around, but make sure you have it documented when you first became disabled, as hopefully they will back date it, and approve it with Medicare Part A & B right away. That is what they did with mine! You would then get back pay and also have your medical coverage!
You know I am always here for you, and I do hope your tooth starts feeling better!
