Mini-Update on my injury (see last post if you need to catch up!):
I didn’t feel as bad as I thought I would when I got up Friday morning. Perhaps it was because my jaw was relatively still while I slept or maybe I still had some pain killers running through my system. The latter is most likely as I dosed myself very well before I finally went to bed.
Throughout the day my jaw and chin became more painful, and I also noticed other aches and pains that weren’t making themselves known Thursday night. My left thigh, left shoulder and my abdomen all hurt too. I get a lot of pain if I try to raise my left arm to shoulder level.
Oh and I was confused when I wrote the last post! Actually I was confused even when I was in the hospital. I kept telling everyone that my left jaw and ear hurt worse than the other side. Well, duh, it’s the right side I kept pointing to and cradling. I hope the Dr. and x-ray tech realized that I meant the right side was the worse of the two and didn’t think that I was just demonstrating the pain of my left jaw by pointing to and touching the right.
My RIGHT ear really hurts, or maybe it’s my jaw where it joins the skull- the Temporal mandibular joint. If I move my jaw side to side, try to make my upper and lower teeth touch, push my chin in or out it hurts the most in that area. Oh and I sneezed three times on Friday and almost screamed in pain each time. My ear or something very close to it pops loudly and painfully when I sneeze. My ear still has the full congested feeling too, even though my hearing on that side seems normal. If this doesn’t calm down over the weekend I’m going to have to get it checked out.
