Hello to everyone, and I hope this finds you all having a reasonable night.
I could really use everyone's crossed fingers, positive thoughts, good vibes - whatever - right now
I've been getting terrible jaw pain the last week from my wisdom teeth, partly from my teeth, partly from them exacerbating my CRPS pain. I finally found a wheelchair accessible dentist yesterday and although I won't know for sure until I have x-rays done, it looks quite likely that I'll have to have at least two, possibly all four teeth extracted. Not a nice prospect for anyone, and for me - with CRPS affecting my face already - it's terrifying.
To top it off, I found a mass on my face a little while ago - doctor is fairly sure that it is nothing to worry about
and I am hoping against hope that he is right because the other possibility is a salivary gland tumour. I am having ultrasounds done on Friday to investigate further and although I know that stress isn't going to help, I am frightened.
CRPS since 1999, diagnosed in 2005 and since spread to full body, spasms, dystonia & contractures, gastroparesis, orthostatic hypotension.
