It's a dreary day out today. Rain & close to 50ºF outside. It's too warm for December being in Buffalo, NY. I need my snow because I am anticipating a white Christmas. Gosh how I missed those when I was in Los Angeles!
It's a possibility, due to the weather my TMJ has been acting up. As well as allergies & asthma. More my TMJ as I woke up today & it felt as if I had lockjaw. I can hear my jaw cracking when I open it & I have a ton of pain all down the left side of me from my head to my back. Mostly in my head, neck & shoulder area. I am having tensing done today which should relieve me by tomorrow but I have found this to be temporary. I went to a dentist, other than my primary who found my left jaw bone is larger than my right one, so it is considered a medical condition. When I have the tensing done, I have a mouthpiece that is aligned up w/my bite to also help keep my jaw in place since I have ground down most of my molars to almost nothing. This has helped but sometimes I still wake up because I know I am trying to grind or force my teeth to move when I am sleeping.
My head is currently pounding & it hurts to move my jaw, the migraine will be here soon so I will take meds & rest. Have a look at my x-ray. Can you see where the problem is?
It really has all become a big mess between what insurances are covering what & who can & cannot help me. I have to stop writing about this because it makes me mad w/everything that I am going through.
SOOoooo... last night's bath consisted of:
- Phoenix Rising bath bomb from Lush
- Orange oatmeal soap bar that I have no clue who made it or where I got it from but I love it.
- White Citrus body wash from Bath & Body works
The tree is up w/its lights, lights are up in our windows, & the wreath is on my door. My family & I went to see A Christmas Story being preformed at the Lancaster Opera House yesterday. My mom & I will be making sugar cookies sometime soon. Chris made me some yummy hot cocoa this weekend & we also got candy cane lattes from Tim Hortons.
All I need now is the brisk cold & my snow that sticks!
