Tomorrow dental visit

The good news is that I get to see NFL football on my TV tonight, but the bad news is that I’m not feeling so jovial today, and I don’t exactly know why. I have a couple of theories. One that I just thought of a few minutes ago is that it’s because I drank 3 Mike’s Hard Lemonades last night and I’m feeling the aftereffects. My 2nd theory is it’s because I have a dentist appointment tomorrow morning and that is somehow affecting my mood, subconsciously. I say it’s subconscious because going to the dentist has never been an emotional issue for me. It might be this time only because my mouth has been bothering for the last few weeks (off and on) and I’m a little concerned it’ll bother me while I have dental tools in my mouth. Although, I was worried about the exact same thing the last time I was at the dentist’s office and I didn’t. So, I don’t know. It must be a normal thing, if you’re having pain prior to going where there could potentially be more. There could be a silver lining though, IF the procedure done by the dentist stops the pain I’m feeling now to stop happening. On the other hand, there’s a possibility that it’s not my teeth, gums or lip sensitivity causing the pain, but Trigeminal Neuralgia. If it is the last, the good news is that there is pain medication to help, as well as figuring out which foods and/or drinks to eliminate from my diet. At least I would know what was/is going on.

Itches, dizziness and a shirt

I’ve had a pretty good day. I enjoyed an hour of chat with a few MSers for about an hour this morning. We all talked about food towards the end, so of course after everyone (and me) had all signed out, I went to the kitchen and put a frozen pizza in the over for my son and I. My son cut it into slices as I handed him a couple of plates. Then I took my plate into the living room and ate while I watched “Lost.” He took his plate into his room and did whatever he does on his computer.

After we were done eating, we drove to the grocery store for a few things; most specifically, caffeine free coffee, because of my recent TN pain. Before leaving, I chewed a half pill of generic tegretol, hoping to stop/lesson the damn pings of pain, which it did, a *little*. I also noticed on the way out the front door that I had some weird itching from my stomach to my arms. I don’t know if that was caused by the ½ pill that I chewed, or the frozen pizza I ate. Then when I got out of the car to wobble into the store, I noticed that my legs were weak and I felt dizzy. In the past I had both issues from too much generic tegretol when I was on a higher nighttime dose, so that’s my 1st guess.

I checked the mail when we got home and yay, one of the shirts that I ordered had arrived.

How has your day been?
