Dental friend Mary Beth guest blogs
because she is a sport. Mary Beth the receptionist, and wife of my dentist!, diagnosed my jaw pain correctly this morning! She isn't a dentist, she says, but she likes to pretend to be. Official dental diagnosis: ? tooth torsion. Official Mary Beth diagnosis: stress. "Have you had any headaches recently Kath?"
"Well yes Mary Beth. It is unusual for me but I had a headache yesterday that lasted all afternoon and evening. "
"Ahhhhhh. And do you grind your teeth?"
"Well, yes again Mary Beth! I even caught myself doing it several times yesterday!"
"there's your jaw ache, honey. THe headache adds pressure to your whole head. My jaw aches then too. " Mary Beth says this with matter of fact certainty.
NO root canal for me! Yippee. IT is just the job.......occasionally......and infrequently, but sometimes, a bit of too much.
Mary Beth is holding my newest cowl project. Oh don't go looking too close. I'm trhilled with this pattern and yarn. THe yarn is Dream in Color in this woodsy brown. THe pattern is taking me places I have not gone in the big knit world. I'll have to showing you more of it, very soon when it is more beautiful.
Dentists. Mine is really great. HOw about yours?
I'll talk to you in the comments. :)
